Aquanatal Courses

Aquanatal Courses running on Thursday evenings 7-8pm.  Please visit or for more information.

The Aquanatal is for pregnant women only and is taught in the teaching pool at Sylvestrian Leisure Centre. It is a private pool and only the women attending are allowed to be present.
The class is designed for pregnant women to be able to help strengthen, tone and work on postures which will aid pregnancy and birth. These sessions are taught by Active Birth/Birthlight Teacher Arlene Dunkley-Wood and she has worked as a specialist birth educator with pregnant women for over 20 years.

The pool is shallow so is adequate for those who are not so confident in water, but is a good opportunity to learn basic swimming skills and learn how to use water effectively in labour.

There will be a life guard on hand at all times.

Bookings are taken for maximum 10 people, but will not run if numbers are below 5.
