Our antenatal classes are for pregnant ladies between 13 to 40 weeks+.

We have both day and evening antenatal classes to cater for working mums-to-be or to allow for partners to come home to babysit – and make tea if you are lucky!

They involve

Antenatal classes Howrah

  • Gentle warm up
  • Circulatory exercises for potentially swollen feet and legs
  • Trunk control/stability work for core muscles to prevent/ease pelvic and low-back pain
  • An upper body circuit for strengthening the arms/upper back in preparing for bubs arrival
  • Some supported swimming
  • Pelvic tilt control
  • Pelvic floor
  • Balance exercises, as your centre of gravity has changed
  • The chance to have a tepid spa – it is not hot so there is no problem using it in pregnancy

It is not an aerobic class, and usually most ladies get a chance to chat and ‘compare notes’ with other pregnant ladies in the class!

The pool is available for one hour – the exercise component is for 45 minutes.

The bulk of the classes may be claimed through health insurance.

Also Available

  • Physiotherapy advice/ supports for musculo-skeletal problems in pregnancy.
  • Instruction in and hiring out of our ‘TENS’ machine for pain relief during labour.
  • Ultra sound for postnatal mastitis.
