What is Pregnancy Yoga?

So, why should you practice yoga and hypnobirthing?

Much like other types of childbirth-preparation classes, pregnancy yoga (or prenatal yoga) is a multifaceted approach to exercise that encourages stretching, mindful centering and focused breathing. At Joyful Body Birth, we combine yoga with hypnobirthing to give you the ultimate combination of techniques and practice for your mind and body during pregnancy, whilst preparing you for a calm and confident childbirth.

What are the benefits?

  • Improve sleep
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Increase the strength, flexibility and endurance of muscles needed for childbirth
  • Decrease lower back pain, nausea, carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms, and headaches

Why include hypnobirthing?

Hypnobirthing breathing techniques are proven to help reduce or manage shortness of breath during pregnancy and work through contractions during labour. You will also have a greater connection with your baby whilst preparing your mind and body for a more calm birthing experience. This winning combination can help you feel good and learn ‘how to’ use your breathing to remain calm, and, best of all, learn to relax.
