Yoga for Pregnancy & Birth

Benefits of Pregnancy Yoga Classes

Your experience of being pregnant and giving birth will bring physical and emotional changes.

At Calmababy, we teach Birthlight Pregnancy Yoga, backed by scientific and medical research, which is accessible to all pregnant women.

This method of Pregnancy Yoga is becoming widely accepted and actively encouraged in Birthing Units across the country and is a real asset in these times of change for the body. Aiming to raise awareness of bringing birth back to basics, women leave the classes feeling positive, empowered and confident in their ability to give birth.

In pregnancy yoga, classic poses are adapted to suit your growing baby and the changes taking place within your body. Whether you practise yoga daily or have never practised yoga before, our classes are tailored to suit the abilities of each mother in the group. Calmababy’s expert trainers teach you physical exercise, deep breathing, and space to explore your feelings about the personal journey you are taking into motherhood.

Birthlight Pregnancy Yoga:

Our classes give women practical resources for “birthing lightly”, making internal space and using their breath to “exhale push” their babies without undue strain.

Deep breathing, active postures, positions for labour and birth, birthing ball work and birth muscle toning are the focus of our sessions. As are an understanding of the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of pregnancy, labour and motherhood.


Ease and Depth of Breathing

Greater awareness of your breathing nurtures you as you stretch and relax. Deep breathing slows the pulse and lowers blood pressure. The release of endorphins causes a general feeling of calmness and healthy well-being. The relaxation you experience passes directly to your baby and delivers benefits such as increased blood flow to the placenta and the sharing of bonding time in pregnancy.

Ease of Movement

Find delight in the relaxed movements, spiralling and circling motions, gentle opening stretches and yoga sequences.

Pelvic Awareness

All movement comes from the pelvis. With this in mind, we work to mobilise, balance and free your full range of pelvic movement enabling you to create the most space possible to birth your baby.

Using the breath, you will learn how to control the pelvic floor muscles, preparing them to become birthing muscles by increasing their elasticity while allowing your body to remain relaxed and open.

Remember the baby!

Pregnancy Yoga is for both you and your baby together. Your breath is your baby’s oxygen. Your movements rock your baby rhythmically, and your voice provides a sonic massage. Classes not only prepare you physically, mentally and emotionally for labour and birth but allow for prenatal bonding and a deep sense of connection with your unborn baby.

‘Birthlight Pregnancy Yoga supports hands-off midwifery and facilitates the work of midwives by giving pregnant and labouring women the understanding and skills they need in order to be positively involved in their personal experience, however, the process unfolds at the time’.
