Physiotherapy Antenatal Class
We Visit You At Home
A physiotherapy antenatal class is run by a physiotherapist and uses our experience and skills to provide you and your partner with as much information as possible regarding various aspects of your labour and postnatal, in a fun session involving as much discussion as you would like. We aim to tailor-make your antenatal class to specific things you would like to practice or discuss (if individual or couple), or if in a group then we aim to cover a slightly wider range of potential birth plans and slightly lengthened session to allow for more discussion. Some of the topics that will be discussed include:
Things to do before you go into labour, including perineal massage, pelvic floor exercises and core abdominal techniques
Ideal positions for baby and your body in 1st and 2nd stage of labour including practice with gym balls, mats and partners
Breathing techniques to aid relaxation, pain and pushing
Distraction and massage techniques
Discussion of the 3rd stage of labour
Discussion of what to do if things do not go to your 'Birth Plan A' and how to adapt
Post-natal advice including when to resume exercise, when to start pelvic floor exercises, posture, positioning and your own specific questions
Shernaz Screwvala is our Surrey physiotherapist and covers Woking, Guildford, Wisley, Bramley, Pryford, Ockham, Cobham, Weybridge, Bookham and a number of other location
**NEW** Internet Based Antenatal Classes
Life is busy and sometimes we all find it hard to fit in sessions that may be useful for us. Natus Physiotherapy now offer internet based Skype antenatal classes. Using pelvis models, diagrams and face to face conversation we find that we can still offer all the above information to a much wider audience. Have a friend in Scotland who you think would benefit or prefer not to wake another child with the front door slamming, then this would be ideal for you. Book your time slot in by contacting Natus Physiotherapy by phone, email or text and we will send you our Skype contact details and confirmation of your time slot. Allow 1-1.5hours, wear loose comfortable clothing.
Wear loose comfortable clothing as we will be practising some positions! £49.99 including 1-1.5hours of skype to skype antenatal class time, an emailed information sheet with everything discussed, on-going support if you have any further questions.
