Mother & Baby classes
At Fisical we offer a range of classes and workshops for mums-to-be preparing for birth and for new mums to take time to practice yoga or pilates with little ones in tow.
Pregnancy yoga can begin from your second trimester and is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners and can continue right up to the birth of your baby.
This class can relieve aches and pains, boost circulation, strengthen the body for birth and keep you fit; whilst being sensitive to you and your baby. It’s useful preparation for the birthing experience, learning to control the breathe to facilitate greater control of the breathe during labour. Yoga also offers the opportunity to bond with your baby and connect with other pregnant women.
Please seek medical advice in advance if you have any medical conditions.

Hypnobirthing & Antenatal course
Equilibrium focuses on using The Little Birth Company hypnobirthing programme, a fresh modern approach to traditional hypnobirthing. In this life-changing education, you will learn simple, yet effective, techniques to help you remain calm, relaxed and in control throughout your pregnancy and birth. You will gain the skills and knowledge that will empower you to trust your instincts and be involved in all the decision-making throughout your labour, even if your experience deviates away from your desired preferences.
You will learn about the physiology of birth and the impact that fear/anxiety has on the body. You will become experts in deep relaxation and learn all about the power of your mind and how your emotional and hormonal influences can help or hinder the process of birth.
Your birth partner will learn the skills to be able to support you from your very first session, and they will gain confidence in knowing that birth is first and foremost a natural process. However, we do focus on achieving the right birth on the day, which sometimes includes surprises! Learning about induction of labour, caesarean birth and assisted birth is all part of being fully prepared for the day your baby takes you on your journey to parenthood or indeed expanding your family.
Hypnobirthing will provide you with a huge sense of achievement after your baby is born, and many, many parents continue to use these powerful techniques well into early parenthood and beyond.
Start these classes any time after your 20 week ultrasound scan. For a full breakdown of what you will learn during each class, please click the schedule link below.
