Caprice Abowitt: Prenatal Yoga and Navigating Birth in a COVID world
Hello all! Today’s podcast is a fabulous interview with Caprice Abowitt. Caprice Abowitt is a certified yoga instructor, birth doula, childbirth educator and certified breastfeeding counselor. A classically trained dancer, Caprice fell in love with yoga after sustaining a back injury and now specializes in kids yoga, pre- and postnatal, and yoga for the pelvic floor. She is a senior teacher at the Prenatal Yoga Center, where she co-leads teacher training in New York City and along the East Coast in addition to directing Continuing Education Programs. Additionally, Caprice leads Childbirth Education for expecting parents as a founding instructor with Birth Smarter. She is based in Brooklyn, where she lives with her husband and son.
I met Caprice when she co-led my prenatal yoga teacher training that I participated in. She was so knowledgable and kind, and had a fascinating background – I knew I wanted to have her on the podcast. The content of this interview was different than expected – as we are in the middle of COVID-19, there have been a lot of things that have changed, from our personal schedules to the policies for pregnant and birthing folks around the country. We talk about what drew Caprice to prenatal yoga, how being a doula informed her own birth experience, and why doulas – both in person and virtual – are incredibly important.
