Relax, Stretch, Breathe

Pregnancy Relax Stretch and Breathe Classes combine a gentle yoga-based class with information about pregnancy and birth, similar to that in an Antenatal Ireland course.  The classes aim to improve physical and emotional wellbeing, provide information about birth and increase the likelihood of a positive birth experience. The groups are a mix of first-time expectant mothers and those who’ve previously given birth so there’s lots of sharing of wisdom and tips within the group.  The benefits of relaxation and gentle exercise during pregnancy are well known and these uniquely-designed classes are provided only by Antenatal Ireland Teachers in Ireland.

The classes offer you time out from busy schedules, to relax and concentrate on yourself and your baby.

 

These classes can help during pregnancy by:

  • improving posture
  • improving confidence about labour and birth
  • helping with breathing for labour and birth
  • relaxing the mind and aiding sleep
  • helping with some pregnancy ailments
  • increasing flexibility
  • increasing familiarity with positions to aid birth

 

Pregnancy Relax Stretch and Breathe is for complete beginners as well as those who have some yoga experience.  If you have a specific ailment you should check the suitability of this class with your care provider. You can join the class from 14 weeks pregnancy right up to birth.
