About YogaBirth Classes

In YogaBirth classes, we stretch, reach, lengthen and strengthen, working with and into your pregnant body in a way that leaves you feeling good - looser, lighter, more mobile and comfortable.

You will sleep better, breathe well and week on week, feel your confidence in your pregnancy and birth ahead, increase.

We become familiar with different positions you may find yourself in throughout each stage of labour, encouraging you to rock, sway and circle, finding comfort in natural flowing movements. Becoming more familiar with these positions throughout your pregnancy makes it easier to trust your instincts and find positions that work for you during labour.

For labour to progress naturally your thinking brain needs to take a back seat and your subconscious take over, following your instincts, listening and responding to what your body and baby needs.

Combine familiar, natural movements with breathing and relaxation techniques and you have tools you need to birth your baby.

At the end of the session, there is tea, there is cake, there is talk!

A warm circle of mothers - women in the same boat as you - feels wonderful to be part of, a rare but important chance to share and chat and learn about what you are going through in pregnancy and what you will need for birth and life with a new baby.

If you're pregnant, come along. Check in and see for yourself what women draw from the class, and the wonderful, positive birth stories it leads to...

Client Reviews

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.

Ellisa

I joined at about 25 weeks and literally had no idea about birthing and pregnancy as it’s my first. Claire’s knowledge and experience really helped answer any questions, she was able to calm any concerns or worries and give tips on general well being with the baby. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere, no pressure. Candle lights, log burner and lots of blankets and cushions to feel comfortable.
Tea and biscuits a bonus afterwards!
No question was too silly

Sam

I would recommend this group for any mum to be. I joined the group late on but found every session useful and would say it was never too late in pregnancy to join. Claire makes you feel so relaxed and I felt genuinely cared about every individual in the group. It also gave a great opportunity to meet and listen to other mums to be. X

Jessie

After not having a great birthing experience with my 1st baby, I wanted to feel more in control with my second. I found Claire @ YogaBirth on Facebook and during her classes we practiced different labour positions & breathing techniques. This really helped me stay in control & have a positive natural labour experience despite being induced. I also enjoyed the time at the end of each class where we discussed different aspects of labour/pregnancy over fruit tea & biscuits xx

Fay

Friendly, calming environment. Lovely teacher & good structured but relaxed class.
If you want a yoga class with a side of birthing & relaxation techniques then this is the class for you.
I wish I had done this for my first pregnancy!!

Suzanna

I would definitely recommend this class to anyone expecting a baby. Brilliant way to stay relaxed thorough out your pregnancy and your labour. And have a positive outlook on what may happen.
