Antenatal Hydrotherapy

Antenatal HydrotherapyWant to sleep better and keep fit during pregnancy?

Evidence shows that pregnant women who perform hydrotherapy based exercise sleep better.

During pregnancy, fitness levels commonly decline as exercise becomes more difficult. This can make childbirth and life as a new mum a lot more exhausting.

The aim of Antenatal Hydrotherapy Classes is to promote exercise that is beneficial and safe and encourages good posture. The low impact exercise classes are a fun and safe way to maintain your fitness levels and make sure you do not get run down by your pregnancy.

The indoor salt chlorinated pool is heated to between 32°C and 35°C, a perfect environment for low impact exercise, floating and relaxing.

The group situation provides support and comfort from other mothers-to-be in the class experiencing similar problems.

Postnatal Hydrotherapy

In the first few months of motherhood, extra energy and patience are required to cope with the onset of any difficulties that may arise. Increased stress can interfere with family dynamics and the establishment of a healthy mother-infant attachment.

The aim of the Postnatal Hydrotherapy ClPostnatal Hydrotherapyass is to promote exercise that is beneficial and safe for both mum and baby.

The indoor salt chlorinated pool is heated to between 32°C and 35°C, the perfect environment for floating, relaxing and bonding with your new baby.

The low impact exercise program is designed to improve your general fitness and the strength of your abdominal muscles and pelvic floor. But it’s not all about exercise. There is anecdotal evidence to suggest that babies exposed to time in the hydrotherapy pool with their mum settle better. Postnatal hydrotherapy classes are the perfect chance to start familiarizing your new baby to being in the water.
