Life with a new baby, whether its your first or fourth although wonderful is also demanding and at some points challenging for us all. At wellbeing & birth our postnatal and baby classes are friendly and inclusive, whether you come to postnatal yoga classes, baby massage or baby yoga (starting January), the most important thing is that you and your baby enjoy time together with out any pressure, just lots of support from others going through similar experiences.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Wise Hippo Hypnobirthing course with Claire. Claire was very well informed and helpful. She provided us with lots of really useful information and taught us some amazing techniques that we’ve been practicing daily. The course gave us both a chance to think about a birth that’s right for us and the confidence to ask for it. On completing the course we both feel so excited, positive and ready to experience the birth of our baby. Thank you so much Claire!

For any mum to be I cannot recommend the birth and yoga preparation class enough. I started going to the classes at 14 weeks and carried on throughout my pregnancy, the knowledge and techniques I gained helped prepared me for labour and stay relaxed throughout. Thank you Claire for helping make my pregnancy and birth such an enjoyable experience.
