A regular yoga practice can be incredibly benefical to pregnant women. The combination of gentle stretches, breath work and a lovely relaxation at the end of class leave many women feeling great. If you can go a class on a weekly basis as a minimum and combine that with some stretches at home you should find it really helps with pregnancy and labour. Natasha holds pre-natal yoga classes in Ryarsh Village hall on Thursday evening at 7.30 pm.

Pregnancy is often a challenging time for women with the body undergoing massive postural changes. As a baby growns it alters the centre of gravity of the body from week to week. Also changes in weight and breast size often affect the body. The most common complaints osteopathy can help with are; back and leg pain, sciatica, neck and shoulder pain, indigestion and post natal problems of the pelvis.

Reflexology can help to restore balance in women during pregnancy and can help ailments such as anxiety, constipation, haemorrhoids and insomnia and oedema. In addition the treatment is incredibly relaxing.
