  • aids stretching
  • and allows for opportunity to relax in the water.

In the later stages of pregnancy, movements practiced in the water will to assist your baby into a favourable position for birth.

An ideal exercise to bring you and your baby closer before they are even born.

It is best to wait for confirmation from your midwife or doctor at your 6 weeks check that gentle exercise can be undertaken, particularly if you have had a c-section.

Well-woman aqua yoga classes are also available. These classes are designed to allow yoga exercises to be practiced in the pool whilst being fully supported by the water. A range of movements are undertaken with the aim of stretching and toning the body in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
