Trained in both Prenatal Yoga, Stott Pilates Pre & Postnatal Pilates and as a Doula,
Aileen gives you a safe space in which to take an hour out each week to enjoy being pregnant, to connect with your growing baby and to just ‘be’.
Prenatal classes with partner can be arranged for each group or can be privately booked.
They cover Late Pregnancy, Early Labour, Active Labour, Post Partum and Breastfeeding. These classes are very informative. What to do when labour starts, how the partner can help, how to work together as a team and how to be as effective as possible with the tools already learned at the Prenatal yoga classes. Designed to give couples confidence and knowledge for the journey ahead into parenthood.
Aileen Warbrook trained as a Doula in Canada with Dona International.
A Doula is a nonmedical person who assists you during and after childbirth, stays with you from the early hours at home, right through your labour and until you are settled afterwards, offering continuous support for you and your partner.
A doula is there as well as your partner and provides you both with assistance and support. If there is a chance that your partner will not be able to attend, a Doula can step in and be there for you. We stay all the way.
The provision of continuous support during labour is associated with improved maternal and fetal health and other benefits, including lower risk of induction and interventions and less need for pain relief.
A Doula can also provide continued post partum support. Once you are home, we provide you with assistant during the first weeks of parenthood.
Once you have had your six-week post-natal check-up and have the go-ahead to start exercise again this class will be great for you both.
We introduce post-natal exercises to regain strength, stabilize the pelvis, and strengthen the tummy area, and stretches to ease out tension in the body
Plus we learn how to massage our babies, which is wonderfully calming, helps relieve wind and colic and improves sleeping patterns
This is a great way to ‘meet up’ with other new Mums, get out of the house, have a cuppa and a chat, avoid post-natal depression and share tips on motherhood. These classes are relaxed, fun and definitely ‘baby led”.
