If you are reading this page, it's likely that you or someone close to you is expecting, so may we start by saying .......Congratulations!!
This is such an exciting and amazing time and no doubt you are keen to give yourself the best possible start to parenthood whilst you are pregnant. Both with your physical health and your emotional wellbeing. It's no secret that exercise is a fantastic way to look after your body and that being in water can provide the safest form of exercise whilst pregnant whilst also being incredibly relaxing. It's for these reason that Aquatots, who have been looking after your babies now in the water for 20 years, offer an even earlier start to the benefits of water, with our Aquanatal programme specifically designed for Mums to be.
Our 45 minutes classes begin with a gentle warm up, to prepare your body before engaging in the fun cardio segment, performed to suitably chosen music. In water depth suitable for all, even if a non confident swimmer. The exercises we use can be adapted to all levels of fitness and physical capability. Included each week is invaluable antenatal education, breathing techniques to help during all stages of your birthing process, important exercises to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscle, and a wonderful relaxation section to finish, which will help you feel calm as well as enjoying a lovely bonding moment for you and baby.
As with our baby programme, we only use Warm private pools and provide an intimate and personal approach with a maximum of 6 mums to each class. Our Teachers are trained to the highest standard and provide great support to each individual Mum in what can be, for some, an apprehensive time too. Our aim is to look after you and give you a very special time to bond with your baby whilst relaxing and exercising. Some of our Mums have told us these classes seem to really stimulate baby and they were rewarded by lots of movement whilst in the water, making them even more special moments.
If you are keen to give yourself that great extra preparation for birth with some relaxation time too, call our office team now on 020 8688 6488 or use our contact form
