The ideal time to commence these programmes is from around 12 weeks of your pregnancy. This will allow you to gain the most benefits. It is possible however to start the programme into your third trimester.

A 4-week educational exercise programme designed specifically for pregnancy and the challenges it brings. The programme focuses on understanding the changes your body goes through, the importance of posture, safe and effective exercises in pregnancy and abdominal and pelvic floor muscle exercises. You also learn how to physically prepare yourself for labour and learn the invaluable skill of relaxation.

Instructors can run these programmes on a one to one basis or in groups of up to 8.

Each antenatal session lasts for 1 hour. Each session covers a short topic of discussion including the pelvic floor, safe exercise during pregnancy and physical preparation for labour, followed by gym ball and mat based exercises. You are also taught effective stretches to reduce joint and muscle stiffness. This is more than just a prenatal exercise class!antenatal exercise pack
