Early Pregnancy Support Classes

During the early stages of your pregnancy you can bounce between feeling anxious to excited. With many colours of the rainbow in-between … is this normal … is everything ok?  
Your body undergoes many changes. Hormonal changes affect almost every organ system in your body. These changes can trigger symptoms even in the very first weeks of pregnancy.
Your period stopping is a clear sign that you are pregnant.

Other changes may include:

  • Extreme tiredness
  • Tender, swollen breasts.
  • an upset tummy with or without throwing up
  • Morning sickness
  • Headaches
  • Cravings or distaste for certain foods
  • Mood swings
  • Constipation
  • Frequent urination
  • Weight gain
  • Weight loss
  • Heartburn

You may find yourself eating more frequently, having smaller servings, going to bed early.
Some ladies may not feel any discomfort at all.  Everyone is different, as is every pregnancy.

Ripple Effect Yoga offers either a one to one or group based early pregnancy support class.
The early pregnancy class is a tool to help you prepare for a great pregnancy by starting early and focusing on nutrition, exercise, and mental preparation.

Early pregnancy classes or even before pregnancy classes can be of great benefit.

Your booking appointment may be towards the back end of your first trimester.  There are important topics that can be discussed earlier in pregnancy rather than later.
Early pregnancy classes are a great starting point.

How your baby is developing … can make your pregnancy more real and exciting.  This is also a time to ask questions that might seem like something you wouldn’t want to ask your doctor or midwife (but totally could) … I’ll leave that one for you to work out ….

How to stay safe during your pregnancy including prenatal supplements, who to contact, what happens if …
If you are booking into a group class then you get to meet other mummies-to-be and this can be an amazing support throughout your pregnancy and when your baby is here … I have clients that have been friends from attending pregnancy yoga classes and they still socialise and get together for ladies nights out and play dates with the children.  The social value of all of our classes is undervalued. The Ripple Effect community is an amazing one and knowing that there are so many wonderful families who will offer support and being a parent in this Community is an amazing experience.

Finding others early on is a great way to share that experience with other people. It’s also great to have some other women to call on when your partner is so tired of hearing about every pregnancy detail.

This is a great opportunity to learn about what you may specifically need in terms of nutrition and undertaking exercise.  Exercise that is appropriate for the early stages.  Gently connecting and establishing a pattern that can easily be incorporated into your day to day.

These classes are for an hour per week.
They may also fill up quickly, so be sure that you sign up as soon as you know you’re pregnant, or before if you are looking for conception support.

One to one can be booked via the booking system …
