16 Jan Making a Splash!……..Postnatal Aqua
We understand your anxiety and try to make the experience stress-free and enjoyable. Ensuring you are met and greeted, taking you to the changing stations and offering help with baby cuddles whilst you get ready for the pool. Car seats can be taken into changing areas and to pool side if required.
We help you get Baby into the special waterproof baby slings if you choose to use them, giving you the extra confidence that baby is safe and secure next to you, helping you into the pool and safely passing Baby to you on exiting the water.
Gentle but effective low impact and muscular strengthening exercise in the pool will give you the ‘feel-good factor’ and boost your energy levels and will help strengthen abdominal and pelvic floor muscles following birth, and you’ll enjoy some welcomed relaxation together with your little one.
Our new babies are often so comfortable and relaxed in the pool snuggled close to mum, that they fall asleep! And our older babies enjoy a good splash 🙂 They all love the pool environment with the lighting and the acoustics and watching each other traveling around in the water. Each week we allow time for Baby to gain confidence moving away and back to mum’s chest and they develop cues to be ready for baby swim classes.
Mums enjoy the weightlessness and buoyancy of the water, so the specially designed exercises which are giving you a full body workout, are effortless and good fun.
We always finish the session with time to relax and float together with your baby…and we take lots of pics for you to share and treasure these special moments…
