Aquanatal Swimming Classes?

Aquanatal Yoga is basically swimming for pregnant women using yoga informed exercises and special techniques. The NHS (2017) states that one of the best exercises for pregnant women is swimming, and we agree! Our Aquanatal classes in Oldham offer an enjoyable way of keeping fit and healthy whilst pregnant. This is the perfect class to keep off the baby weight whilst meeting other mummies-to-be.

Our Aquanatal classes are a gentle yet effective form of exercise for pregnant women allowing them to stretch without straining and overheating. It is also a chance for a deep relaxation. Water provides a soothing yet stimulating environment to prepare for birth. Aquanatal classes offer pregnant women more than just fitness: water facilitates relaxation and helps cultivate positive emotions.

When you’re swimming with Our First Steps you can be sure you’re in the safest of hands. Our instructor, Becky, is trained by Birthlight which is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives. Becky is also one of the founders and owners of Dolphin Academy, Oldham’s top private swim school. We are the only Birthlight certified provider in the Northeast and Northwest of England.

Birthlight is informed by cutting edge medical and scientific research but its hallmark is simplicity and accessibility to all pregnant women, whatever their state of fitness, their condition or their cultural background. Birthlight gets its name from giving women practical resources for ‘birthing lightly’, making space in themselves and using the breath to ‘exhale push’ their babies without undue strain. You can find out more about Birthlight on their website.
