If you are pregnant, here are the best ways to prepare in Buckingham

Are you pregnant and looking for antenatal classes in Buckingham, Brackley or Towcester? There couldn’t be there a better time to be preparing for a new baby, with so many choices available.  However it can make deciding what is best for you a little more tricky!

Maybe you are considering pregnancy yoga or hypnobirthing, or maybe a more traditional antenatal class? Do you attend alone or with your partner? When is the best time to start? 

Remaining active whilst pregnant is really beneficial. Pregnancy yoga can help your body remain flexible, reduce stress and anxiety and even improve sleep. 

Hypnobirthing will provide you with the tools to remain calm and in control of your labour.  It can help you overcome any fear or anxiety you may have about birth.

A more traditional antenatal class will provide you with all you need to know about birth physiology, including pain relief & possible interventions.  Some will also include newborn sessions and infant feeding.

Including your birth partner in your birth preparation can be really beneficial, as it can provide them with lots of ways to support you in labour. However you may also enjoy a mums only class, where you can get to meet other local pregnant mums to be. 

Deciding on when is best to start is totally up to you and how you are feeling. Most classes are suitable from your second trimester (14 weeks) with some recommending attending from 28 weeks.  When ever you choose to start, make sure you  give yourself time to practice.

Here at Daisy we offer a selection of classes to help you prepare, combining many of the elements above. If you are interested in a mums only yoga based movement & relaxation antenatal class then check out our Daisy Birthing classes, which are held near Stowe, Buckingham.
