A short, nourishing practice specifically for midwives or shift workers whose sleep patterns may be disturbed.
Sufficient rest is key to all aspects of mental health. Emotional and cognitive resilience is nurtured by sleep. Our immune systems are depleted by lack of rest and nder-slept people make poor choices. Sleep deprivation and disruption is a widespread experience of midwives and all shift workers, especially those working under high pressure in health care settings.
A rested midwife is safer, kinder, more present and connected. Yoga nidrā can be a vital tool to support safe practice and wise choices on shift, even at the tiredest moment. It is also a potent remedy for fatigue-induced confusion and insomnia because it offers a rapid means to reset and reconnect, to restore natural rhythmic cycles that can be disrupted by night work.
Made with love for midwives, from a midwife
