Nicola Wilson, Puddle Ducks Lincolnshire
Do you know you can start your Puddle Ducks journey before your bundle of joy arrives? Experience the perfect balance of relaxation, laughter and exercise. A wonderful way to unwind and stay healthy during your pregnancy.
Our Aquanatal classes are a fabulous activity for mummies-to-be. They are expertly designed Aquanatal programmes that take a holistic approach to an expectant mums’ physical and mental well-being. They combine relaxation with cardiovascular exercises to help prepare the body for birth.
Swimming is one of the safest ways to exercise during pregnancy as the water supports your joints whilst also providing resistance work for all the muscles, strengthening your back and abdominal muscles ready for carrying your baby around!
Classes take place in the soothing warm comfort of pools and combine exercise with relaxation activities. The perfect way to unwind and enjoy a little ‘me time’. Exercise and relaxation release your body’s natural happy hormones, endorphins, which suppress pain and help you (and baby) feel calm, not only helpful in later pregnancy but also really important during and after labour.
Our teachers must pass antenatal swimming training that is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives Trust, STA Aquacise training, and our own extensive Aquanatal training. This means that you’re in the safest possible hands as you work out and relax.
Attending our Aquanatal classes means that once your baby arrives, they’ll find the sounds of the pool familiar and will be relaxed when you take them swimming. Even before you move onto Baby & Pre-school and then Swim Academy lessons as a family.
