My name is Miriam, and I am the founder of Feel Good Moms, a holistic pre- and postnatal exercise studio based in The Hague, The Netherlands.
The birth of Feel Good Moms came about as a result of the realization that not enough attention is paid to female physical and mental health during and after pregnancy.
Countless of women are unaware of some pregnancy related physical changes that can happen to their bodies and think that it is normal to pee themselves when they run or sneeze, have severe lower back pain, a dysfunctional core due to abdominal separation or a pelvic organ prolapse sometimes resulting in organs poking out of their genitals.
Once the babies are born, new moms are lucky to have a some checks done by their midwives or doctors, but once their maternity care period is over, mamas are left to their own devices in regards to their pelvic floor health and mental states.
So far I have financed everything myself. Training equipment, furniture, website, marketing material, etc. myself. However in order to obtain additional equipment and create a more welcoming and warm atmosphere for future and new moms I will need your help.
The Feel Good Moms building needs a paint job, change tables for the babies, a new couch for the moms, chairs, and so on. It is probably safe to say that the entire building needs a make-over but for now just a few changes would already make a huge difference.
If you would like to support Feel Good Moms and the push towards improved female health, then even a small donation would be appreciated beyond measures.
Thank you for taking time to read this!
