Pregnancy Wellness

Pregnancy wellness is about your whole being; physical, mental and emotional – even spiritual. We can create treatment plan tailored just for you. This can include prenatal massage, yoga, ayurvedic lifestyle and pelvic and pelvic floor awareness and education.


Pregnancy treatments

Anja is a wonderful yoga teacher and her classes are always a great mix of challenge, fun and relaxation. I attended her pregnancy classes all throughout my pregnancy and I feel like they really helped me prepare for labour and childbirth. I highly recommend her!


Pelvic floor and pelvic stability education

Learn techniques and exercises to strengthen, stabilise and release tension at the pelvis, pelvic floor and abdomen. This is absolutely essential for a new mother regardless of her birth (vaginal or c-section).

Recover your pelvic floor, understand abdominal separation (diastasis recti) and gain back your health.

Includes consultation, yoga-based practises and can also include learning palpation/massage to release tension around the pelvis. (No internal work).

Allow up to 1 hour + 10 minutes £70

 


Women’s health consultation

When you have special health issues to discuss. The consultation incorporates ayurvedic prenatal guidelines, lifestyle and daily routines.

It’s the perfect first session to create your own pregnancy treatment plan and can include yoga, pelvic floor education and birth preparation.

Allow up to 1 hour + 10 minutes £70

Prenatal yoga is yoga specifically for the pregnant body. It can incorporate pelvic floor practices, birth preparation, breathing techniques and general yoga practice.

Contraindications

 

 

 

 

 

When is a good time to start?

Ask your health care provider if massage or yoga is appropriate in your pregnancy and get their consent.

In your first trimester we welcome you to a consultation only.

For yoga join us after your 12 week scan. And it’s never too late in your pregnancy for yoga, massage or birth preparations.


When you need different support

If you have a history of miscarriages or you suffer from spontaneous bleeding, abdominal pain, thrombosis or any other concerning issues then neither yoga or massage is recommended. Please make sure you are supported by your birth team.

Benefits

Why prenatal massage/yoga?

 

 

 

 

 

Yoga + pelvic awareness

Pregnancy is a huge change in the mother’s body. Hormones are changing and the physical body changes too. It is important to create stability and strength at this time. As well as learning how to relax, breathe and open up.

This is appropriate for the whole body and especially around the pelvis and pelvic floor.

Yoga and pelvic education can support you in your pregnancy, as a preparation for labour and birth including birth positions as well as help recover after birth.
