This is held on wednesday eveings 7-7.40pm at Woking's Pool in the Park. GU22 9BA Its a class exclusively for pregnant mums ( the lagoon is closed to the rest of the public during the session) and helps them to keep fit and relaxed during pregnancy. You don't even need to be a strong swimmer as all moves are performed within your depth or using buoyancy aids /woggles etc
The class includes gentle aerobic and core strengthening exercisess and a chance to float whilst the wave machine is activated. It is suitable for mums with pregnancy pelvic problems eg SPD as the buoyancy of the water can actually improve mobility and reduce pain. We also pay particular attention to pelvic floor exercises and breathing practice for labour.
To book visit the pool's website to pay the £6.75
If you decide to come regularly through the pregnancy then join our whatsapp group and keep up to date with other participants and their pregnancies.
You can also book over the phone but it does tend to get really busy! 01483 771122
Immediately after the aqua session (upstairs opposite reception) on the 2nd weds of the month I host the Woking branch meeting of the Positive Birth Movement. Follow us on facebook for event notifications as these meetings are free and open to all.
for more info about The Positive Birth Movement please go to
The sessions are discussion groups with a monthly theme set by Milli Hill ( founder of the PBM) They are open to anyone keen to make birth a more positive experience for all, especially expectant couples, new families and birth workers. Many mums attend the aqua-natal session 1st and then meet their partners upstairs for the PBM meeting afterwards.
On the last weds of the month at 8pm I run a breathing and relaxation session straight after aqua. if you are coming to the aqua class then its only £10 for the 2 sessions or £6.75 on its own. Feel free to meet your partner there at no extra cost.
The session starts with refreshments and discussion on topics such as pain relief in labour, looking after yourself after the birth, breastfeeding etc we then do some gentle floor exercises/ labour breathing techniques and finish with a guided meditaton session til 8.45.
This outdoor session of group exercise accompanied by your baby in a buggy is suitable for all levels of fitness from 6 weeks after
the birth ( 10 weeks if it was a C Section)
We meet at 12.45pm on a Thursday outside St John's Memorial Hall which has a carpark directly opposite. You can use their toilets, change the baby and fill up water bottles before we set off to exercise in the local area. ( along the canal and on the Lye)
I carry equipment such as boxing gloves, skipping ropes, dumbells etc so we can do a sort of mini 'Boot camp' or circuit training. In dry weather we concentrate on abdominal exercises on a picnic rug or park bench.
Come prepared to exercise in muddy grass and in rain! You will get hot so layers are essential and make sure baby is dressed appropriately. Its important to drink plenty of water especially if you are also breastfeeding ( you may also want to wear a second bra over a feeding bra for extra support!!)
The session finishes at 13.45 which is ideal if you want to attend the NCT nest in the Memorial hall straight after.
Please contact me to be added to our group whatsapp then you can let us know each week whether you will be coming. We need at least 2 Mums for the session to go ahead. I will need a completed registration form before we set off so either email for one in advance or come early to the first sesson to complete one.
