Pregnancy Aqua Natal Bristol and South Glos'
What to expect from our Birthlight pregnancy Aqua Yoga class
Our Birthlight aquanatal classes are recommended by the Royal college of Midwifes (RCM) Movements and rotations have been adapted for the water making them achievable and comfortable for pregnant women and can be very beneficial if you are suffering from backache, pelvic pain , SPD, PGP and other pregnancy related symptoms. You do not need to have practised yoga, aqua natal before or be a swimmer. Aquatic Harmony aqua natal is a wonderful pregnancy fitness and relaxation class allowing you to biond with your baby, carry our beneficial exercises in warm pools, meet other expectant mums, learn breathing practices to benefit you in pregnancy and labour.
Breach, transverse and back to back babies: We also have gentle movements and rotations that we use to turn breach, transverse and back to back, and have succesfully turned many babies over the years to the correct birthing position, allowing mothers to birth their baby naturally.
Breathing exercises: The practice of deeper, more expansive breathing which has many benefits for mother and baby. This can be practiced through all stages of pregnancy, labour and birth. Breathing techniques train the muscles of the pelvis to become involved in full breathing, providing a powerful tool for labour. Postnatal breathing is used to "close the body" working the pelvic floor, spine and tummy muscles.
Relaxation: Every class we take time to relax and spend time with your baby in or out of the womb. Floating in water offers excellent relaxation supported with floats to ensure you can fully relax and connect with your baby, such a benefical timeout for busy mummies to be giving you well earned "you" time in the water.
Preparing for birth: In our aqua natal classes you will learn movements and breathing that you can use day to day during your pregnancy and also movements and breathing that will assist you during labour.
Adapted Swimming: Swimming is the best form of exercise for pregnant women. Our classes teach the correct adaptations of classic swimming strokes in which to accommodate your bump, support the pelvis and any changes in your body. Swimming when Pregnant and being in the water is a fablous way to take the weight off and be supported.
Support: Everyone in the class will be on the same exciting path in motherhood. Our classes will provide full support to both mums-to-be and new mums whilst giving an opportunity to get to know other woman in the group... Some great friendships have developed through the years. And many mums carry onto our baby swim classes when baby is born
