With more than 120 classes and a plethora of programs offered each week, the YMCA bolsters bodies with invigorating and enjoyable fitness regimens throughout Manhattan. Aspiring circus strongpersons have their pick from brawn-building courses such as kettlebell for a full flexibility workout, spinning for 45 minutes of fat-burning cardio, and capoeira for winning dance-fights against hard-bargaining local street vendors.
Laura Saba—life coach, parenting advocate, and director of Momdoulary Method—hopes to take the stress and fear out of the birthing process by training flocks of doulas to go forth and support new parents. Doulas are nurturing childbirth concierges, helpers who provide education and coaching from prenatal times until after the bun is out of the oven and cooling in the BabyBjörn. Besides providing emotion support to their clients, practitioners who have studied Laura's Momdoulary method are well-versed in practical measures such as the mechanics of childbirth, breastfeeding, and first aid.
