HomeYogaPregnancy, Preeclampsia, and A Beautiful Ending with Alicia Krakauer

Pregnancy, Preeclampsia, and A Beautiful Ending with Alicia Krakauer


One of the best things about founding and developing Prenatal Yoga Center has been getting the chance to foster and grow our perinatal community. Throughout the months during (and after) their pregnancy, our students and staff get to know each other through rich dialogue where we work through things that come up, connect on shared experiences, and learn from different ones! Being so invested in their journey leading up to birth, I always feel fortunate when I get to hear how baby came into the world. So today, we have one of my favorite episode types: a community birth story.

On today’s episode of Yoga| Birth| Babies, we have former prenatal student Alicia Krakauer. Alicia is a born and bred New Yorker, a musical theater actress, and singer songwriter. After finishing her graduate degree at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London, she met her husband Liam back in 2014. They now live back in her hometown of NYC, and have just welcomed their first baby boy, Alastair, who was born at Lenox Hill just like his mommy!

Alicia gets candid about the twists and turns that occurred in her birth and gives wonderful advice on how to process duality; allowing the space for more than one thing to be true, in both birth and postpartum. This is such an organic conversation, and I can’t wait for you to hear it.

In this episode, you will learn: 

  • About Alicia
  • Some of the things she did to help her prepare for her birth
  • Her birth story
  • How physicality and vocalizations showed up in her birth as comfort measures
  • What the most surprising thing about postpartum has been for her
  • What one of the most joyous parts of postpartum and parenthood is for her
  • One final tip or piece of advice Alicia would like to offer new and expectant parents
  • Where you can find her work
