About the class:

A unique movement based antenatal course designed to help you move through pregnancy and towards birth with more ease and confidence.

Bringing together a blend of simple yoga-based poses, embodied movement and mindfulness with need-to-know info about how birth works.

The more you learn about your body and the process of birth, the more you’ll be able to adapt to situations and take birth in your stride. Over the course we’ll explore your pelvis, pelvic floor, learn about core muscles, positions for birth, learn to work with gravity and make time to relax deeply. There will be movement for your whole body; heat to toe, wrists, ankles, core and pelvic floor. We’ll also explore some of the key mind-body connections that can help you stay calm and focussed for birth. 6 topics repeat in a cycle – start any time.

  • Low cost places available for those in need
Benefits include: 
  • Practice relaxation and body awareness
  • Learn breathing and active birth techniques
  • Understand your changing body better
  • Stay strong for birth and beyond
  • Make friends & share your experience

“The classes were comprehensive, covering all of the body from head-to-toe. There was good focus on breathing, relaxation and preparing for birth in various positions. I enjoyed the relaxation at the end and almost fell asleep! I felt very nurtured by Emilie and would be happy to recommend her to other expectant mums.” – Claire

“I recommend these classes for the all essential ‘me’ time during pregnancy as they’ve really helped me to breathe, stretch and properly listen to my body.” – Suzie

“Emilie helped me feel more in control, less apprehensive and to know what to expect, so I could navigate a calmer way through – knowing how to listen and respond to my body. The whole experience was really lovely.” – Alice
