Expecting baby number 2, 3, 4 or more? You may think you know everything there is to know about having your baby, but here’s five great reasons why you should think about joining a pregnancy yoga class with The Happy Little Company.
1. You’ll have some “me time”
Anyone that already has a child / children understands that there is very little time spent by themselves. Our pregnancy yoga classes are 60-90 mins of “me time”, allowing mothers-to-be to put themselves first, and return to their families chilled out and relaxed. If you really struggle to find that time for yourself, or you can’t get to one of our classes, our online course, Pregnancy Yoga – Mind & Body Relaxation, contains six classes that are broken down into smaller sections, approximately 10-15 mins each. You can work through each class at a speed that suits you. You can even try your first class for free with our Introduction to Pregnancy Yoga.
2. You’ll learn something new
Yes, you’ve given birth before, but each Happy Little Company pregnancy yoga class is filled with useful information including positions for labour, breathing techniques for keeping calm and beautiful relaxations. Our teachers aim to educate you on your body and the birth process – we’re constantly learning ourselves so that we can bring you the most up to date information ahead of your birthing day. You’ll also pick up handy hints and helpful advice from other women in class, or from our social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
3. You’ll be able to prepare physically for having another baby
Our weekly classes are suitable for all women in their second and third trimesters. Physically you may be feeling very different to last time – perhaps you’re experiencing nausea, sickness, tiredness, aches and pains. A dedicated pregnancy yoga class can help to alleviate all of these symptoms and niggles, including the more severe SPD / PGP.
4. You’ll be able to prepare emotionally for having another baby
5. You’ll meet other mothers-to-be
We believe that you can never have too many friends, and it’s especially important for some women to find other women nearby that are experiencing pregnancy and motherhood at the same time. Research shows that women who have a strong support network are less likely to suffer from prenatal or postnatal depression. As the well-known saying goes:
It takes a village to raise a child
