Yoga teacher celebrates birth of milestone baby with charity party
12:10pm Tuesday 11th December 2012 in Local
A BROMSGROVE yoga teacher has celebrated a special milestone with a charity fund-raising party.
Jane Bishop has run an ante-natal yoga class on Saturday mornings at Avoncroft Arts Centre, for nearly six years.
To celebrate the birth of the 200th baby born after the mother had attended the classes, a special charity party was held at the Stoke Prior Sports and Country Club last Saturday, December 8.
The 200th baby was Reuben Halstead, who was born on September 17, and Reuben and mum Robyn attended the event.
Jane said: “It was great seeing so many people and their babies.
“There were even some from my very first classes, whose children now go to school.
“We had a fantastic turnout and it was brilliant to see so many yogababies all in one place.”
The event raised money, through a raffle, for the Anthony Nolan Trust and its campaign for mothers to donate umbilical cords following the birth of their baby.
Blood in the cord is rich in stem cells, which can be used for lifesaving transplants for patients suffering from leukaemia and serious blood disorders.
