Do Full Moons affect Pregnancy?

Do Full Moons affect Pregnancy: Ilana Kosakiewicz from The Energy Shift Podcast

I have a super interesting discussion for you today as I talk about all things energy with Ilana Kosakiewicz, a kinesiologist, energy coach and yoga and meditation teachers. I’ll be bold enough to say that it’s an episode that every woman should listen to. It is about motherhood, hormones, and the affect of the lunar cycle – do full moons affect pregnancy?

We barely scratch the surface in this episode as Ilana shares about what kinesiology is and how, through muscle testing, it shifts energy in the body, restoring it back to balance. Ilana talks about the connection between the moon and a woman’s cycle and how we need to listen to our biological clocks instead of trying to keep up with the 24 hour clock we’re accustomed to. Ilana shares some great practical tips for how to get the best out of your day, depending on where you’re at in your cycle. 

I must confess I was a bit hesitant going into this conversation because I know nothing about kinesiology and thought it might be a bit woo woo for me! But I can assure you, Ilana’s knowledge and experience will inspire you and equip you with practical ways to live life more energised and more connected to your body, no matter what phase of life you’re in.

Whether you’re 6 weeks postnatal with a toddler running around or trying to conceive, this episode is for you.

In one of our latest episode on the Pregnancy, Birth and Recovery podcast, I discussed a topic that I often brushed under the carpet: pelvic floor birth trauma. Traditionally, society focusses on the joyful stories of birth, leaving the not-so-pleasant bits like pelvic floor issues a bit of a taboo. But it’s high time we…
