Lizzy has caused a bit of a stir online, after sharing photos of herself practicing ‘acroyoga’ – a mixture of yoga and acrobatics – during her pregnancy.
Lizzy and her husband, Josh, have been involved in acrobatics for years, and they decided to tweak their routines to allow them to keep practicing ahead of becoming parents for the first time.
As Dr Seuss said to his little one: "'It's a scrumptulous world and it's ready to greet you, And as for myself ... well ... I can't wait to meet you!" Thanks @michelle_yogogirls for capturing these moments as @acropediaorg and I wait to meet @acrodavid Big thanks as well to @ingridandisabel for the great prenatal pants
When you live in yoga pants, finding awesome maternity yoga pants is a big deal. Big shout out to @ingridandisabel for making such comfortable and supportive yoga clothes - I haven't taken them off since I got them! Thanks to @yogogirls for all these awesome pictures and inspiring @acropediaorg and I to play with different shapes and lines that highlight this growing baby bump ... Soon to be @acrodavid
As you can see above, the poses are not for the faint-hearted, but Lizzy told Babycentre that she was ‘super happy’ to share her experience and journey with the online world. She and Josh welcomed their gorgeous tot, baby David, two weeks ago.
As you can imagine, the couple's photos have been getting plenty of attention online, with some questioning whether or not acroyoga is safe for a baby, and even suggesting that it could be ‘dangerous’.
Lizzy has responded: “There are some things, like big pop moves, where Josh catches my hips with his feet, that we realised, ‘Ok, not going to do that anymore’, no more catching on my belly or hips…but we modified things so I could still take part. My doctor said, ‘You should do what feels healthy, safe and good for you.’”
What do you think of Lizzy’s photos?
