Birth & Bloom Pregnancy Yoga classes aren’t just about exercise or yoga, they’re about:

Feel more comfortable by easing pregnancy discomforts and ailments
Feel supported and connected to other mums-to-be who are sharing in this journey with you, enjoy weekly chat and catch up at the start of each session

Feel relaxed and empowered as each session finishes with a blissful hypnobirthing relaxation to build your confidence and calmness as you prepare for birth
What’s special about Birth & Bloom Pregnancy Yoga sessions?
Each session is created by myself, Danielle, a qualified pregnancy yoga and hypnobirthing teacher. To date, I have supported around a hundred+ parents on their birth journeys and having had 3 babies myself, I really understand the importance of feeling totally supported, understood, confident and relaxed about birth, both physically and mentally.
That’s why I include the below in each of my pregnancy yoga sessions:
Breathing techniques for calmness, to ease anxiety during pregnancy and importantly, breathing for labour and birth
Positive affirmations to help your mind and body relax - because science tells us what happens in our bodies is affected by the thoughts in our heads and as a hypnobirthing teacher and someone who has birthed two babies (one with and one without using hypnobirthing), I can tell you they make the world of difference to your birth experience
Time to chat to other mamas-to-be, sharing experiences and start building your support network
Exercises to strengthen muscles which support your growing baby bump and to increase strength and stamina during labour and gentle stretches to ease discomfort and pregnancy ailments
Visualisation of your calm labour, meeting your baby plus other hypnobirthing techniques so that come the day of your baby’s birth, you’ll feel confident that you know how to work with your body to maintain calmness throughout your birth
An empowering hypnobirthing relaxation to help you let go of worries and increase your confidence and ability to relax, so that it becomes second nature to you
15 mins of social time at the end of the class, free hot drinks and biscuits included
Plus each session includes a weekly evidence-based birth topics such as:
How the uterus works during each contraction
How birth positions affect your labour
Working with your pelvic floor during pregnancy and birth
Ways to reduce the chance of tearing
Optimal foetal positioning (encouraging baby into helpful positions for birth)
AND - Each session is planned with you in mind, so any pregnancy ailments, discomforts or conditions you may be experiencing, plus different energy and flexibility levels are accommodated for so that you can fully enjoy and benefit from each class, even if how you’re feeling varies week to week.

I look forward to welcoming you and your bump to these lovely pregnancy yoga sessions!
