Evening Classes Available in Selsdon, Bagshot, Thornton Heath and coming soon to Morden.
Aquatots are delighted to bring you Aquanatal, our unique exercise and relaxation programme for expectant mums. Taking place in warm private pools with small groups of no more than 6 Mums, over 4 weekly sessions lasting 45 minutes each.
Classes include a gentle warm up, cardio to suitably chosen music, moving on to breathing techniques designed to help you during your birthing process, pelvic floor exercises to strengthen those important muscles and culminating in a wonderful relaxation section to help you feel calm. It’s also lovely bonding exercise for you and baby.
During the course you will learn about your body, how your hormones are preparing your body for birth, birth positions and labour. Other benefits include helping to reduce blood pressure, help alleviate swollen ankles and wrists, improved cardiovascular efficiency to improve blood flow to your placenta and enhanced circulation helping to prevent varicose veins and haemorrhoids.
This course is suitable and beneficial for those suffering with pelvic girdle pain and also non swimmers. The course can be repeated as many times as you like so you can enjoy your class right up to giving birth and continue after baby’s arrival (after 6 week check) as a postnatal course to aid recovery.
"I had a baby girl on 16th September, I must give you a big thanks for those breathing techniques as I got through the birth on that alone! Used gas and air for the last 10mins!
Thanks again, Monika”
“I gave birth to Laurence at 39 weeks- a chunky 9lbs 7oz, Managed to get to 8cm just using the basic breathing you taught us! The Midwife said she was impressed with my breathing technique! Unfortunately I had to be monitored again (developed obstetric cholestasis) I ended up opting for an epidural at 8cm but I managed a natural birth. Feels like a real healing process after my last experience and I couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you so much! - Julia Croucher”
