“I would thoroughly recommend Birthlight classes to any mum-to-be. Whilst pregnant I attended the pregnancy yoga and also the ‘birth preparation’ classes, both were really worthwhile and I am convinced the relaxation and breathing techniques helped me have a very straight forward delivery and the yoga was so wonderfully relaxing!”

Thanks to the yoga classes and workshops we were able to plan and have the active / natural birth we wanted!
I stayed active and gave birth on my knees, my partner knew exactly what I was doing so was able to help and support me as needed.
I can’t thank you enough for giving us the tools to have this positive birth experience.Felicity & Alex
