Movement for Pregnancy
Prepare your body for birth and reduce common pregnancy pain with movement designed for pregnancy - allowing you to have a happy, healthy pregnancy and birth.
Your body was designed to birth but your body was not designed to live the way modern life expects you to. For an easier, more comfortable pregnancy, you need to move and think differently, let me show you how.
Frequently Asked Questions
Not at all – you are welcome to join group classes right up until your ‘Birth’day, you just need to decide whether to join The Pregnancy Series or The Birth Series. If you are hoping to join the workshop, make sure you book the Natural Movement for Birth workshop - it will be more specific to where you are at right now.

If you suspect that you have a hernia, prolapse or that ‘something doesn’t feel right’ please see your Doctor first for a diagnosis, you may need to be referred to a Women’s Health Physio (WHP) first. If you already have a diagnosis, please book a 20-minute call before booking anything just to make sure everything is safe and suitable for you as you work towards your recovery. Helen is very happy to work alongside your Doctor, WHP and other health professionals.

Fantastic, you will have received an email confirmation with the details you need.
Please make sure you complete the pregnancy health questionnaire at least 48 hours before your session to avoid it being rescheduled.
If you didn't receive your email confirmation please double-check your email - it may have gone into your 'promotions' or 'junk' folder.
If we are meeting in person - just bring yourself! Getting to class can often be the hardest thing! To make it easier the studio is fully kitted out with mats, bolsters, blocks and straps to ensure you can modify where you need to for a comfortable class.
If we are meeting online, you will need a space to move, a yoga mat if you have one, if not - don't worry. A half-dome, a couple of yoga blocks and a yoga strap would be helpful - if you don't have any of those a rolled-up towel, a couple of books and a scarf can be used instead.
The Pregnancy Series is much more than just your class! You will feel fully supported throughout your pregnancy through both offline and online resources, but we understand Pregnancy can change and no two pregnancies are the same. If you need to stop altogether for medical reasons, just get in touch.
