We have two weekly pregnancy yoga based classes running at the clinic. Please contact the class leaders, Nici or Kat if you have any questions, and to book your place.
Daisy Birthing in a unique combination of the 4 following elements
- Yoga based movement
- Birth hypnosis / relaxation
- Birth breathing techniques
- Antenatal & active birth education
This all inclusive active antenatal method is an all-encompassing class designed to help you learn birth education in a truly effective way.
Each 90 minute class over our 6 week term includes traditional antenatal education combined with active birthing principles, taught seamlessly alongside flowing movements designed to anchor the education to your body, breath & movement, exactly where you will need it on your baby’s birthing day.
The yoga movement is designed specifically to help alleviate any pregnancy aches & pains & to prepare the body for birth.
**We have a max of 7 Mums per term allowing a space to chat & get to know each other. We remain in touch (if you wish) via a Whatsapp group & continue the journey together. If you would like, you can also come along and join the wider Daisy community for our monthly coffee catch ups**

Yoga for Pregnancy classes are a time to relax, focus on your new baby and think about your wishes for the birth, with practical tips and time to ask questions. It’s also a great opportunity to meet other expectant mums.
The classes focus on gentle postures, breathing techniques, positions for labour and relaxation. The aim is for you to have an enjoyable and relaxing time, whilst improving your physical and emotional wellbeing and helping you feel more confident and positive about birth. The postures are very gentle, specifically designed so you can attend throughout your pregnancy (after 12 weeks) and can be adapted to individual needs.
The classes are suitable for all women, regardless of their fitness level. No previous experience of yoga is necessary.
Benefits of these classes include:
• Reduced back ache
• Improved quality of sleep
• Reduced anxiety
• Strengthened joints and muscles
• Increased flexibility
• Increased blood circulation
• Reduced swelling from fluid retention
• Improved posture and body awareness
• Strengthened abdominal and pelvic muscles
• Improved digestive system
I am an NCT Antenatal teacher and have undertaken further training into the practice and philosophy of yoga. I am passionate about enabling women to have a positive experience of pregnancy and birth.

I started my journey into antenatal work after the birth of my eldest, joining the local National Childbirth Trust committee group and then starting my training for a diploma in Antenatal Education a few years later. I have been teaching antenatal courses since 2012 alongside my full-time teaching job.
In 2013 I decided to undertake further training through the NCT to teach Relax, Stretch and Breathe classes and last year converted this into a Yoga for Pregnancy qualification.
I have also trained to teach baby massage and I am an NLP birthing practitioner, as well as having regular CPD developing my knowledge around birth and parenting.
I fully believe that being able to make informed choices around labour and birth has a positive impact on the experience, but more importantly women trusting what their body is doing and believing in its ability to birth.
