Why mothers love motherslove:
"Emilie is down to earth and friendly; she creates an inclusive and warm environment for the classes.
I recommend these classes for the all essential 'me' time during pregnancy as they've really helped me to breathe, stretch and properly listen to my body. "
“The classes were comprehensive, covering all of the body from head-to-toe. There was good focus on breathing, relaxation and preparing for birth in various positions.
I enjoyed the relaxation at the end and almost fell asleep! I felt very nurtured by Emilie and would be happy to recommend her to other expectant mums.”
"Emilie helped me feel more in control, less apprehensive and to know what to expect, so I could navigate a calmer way through - knowing how to listen and respond to my body.
The whole experience was really lovely."
“Thanks for your time and lovely attention. I really enjoyed the whole class, especially because it had a bit of everything, it wasn’t only yoga and exercise.
After the class, I felt very relaxed all evening.”

The good stuff
How can Your Best Pregnancy course help you?
Mind & body
We explore the head to toe of the physical side of pregnancy, and also look at the emotional and social changes that happen during pregnancy.
Balance & posture
Yoga can help you adjust to the changes within the body, literally finding your centre and feeling your way through the changes in your body.
Keep moving and gently strengthen legs, arms, wrists and core muscles every week to help you stay strong and prepare for birth.
Relaxing and feeling more comfortable in your body can help with insomnia. As well as relaxing during sessions, exercising the body can help you sleep better at night.
Common pain areas such as hip and pelvic soreness, lower back pain and tense shoulders can be gently stretched and relief found.
Breathing well and relaxing can benefit the immune system; helping you combat colds and illness.
Yoga improves circulation, helping the blood flow freely through the body and providing more oxygen to both mum and child. This may in turn help lower blood pressure and help you stay healthy.
Classes promote the flow of oxytocin. It’s the ‘love hormone’ that helps you birth and breastfeed your baby. Getting into this zone every week can be hugely beneficial to prepare for birth.
Time for you
Having space and time to adapt to pregnancy and new motherhood can be vital for peace of mind. In classes there’s time to chat, share experience and meet other mums.
