Pregnancy Yoga and Pregnancy Pilates

Want to exercise safely and meet other mums?

We have designed our classes specifically for women like you. Benefit from a relaxing space where you will meet other pregnant women to share your mutual journey.  A place where you can have your questions answered.

Enjoy informative and positive birth stories and positive messages about birth.

Build your knowledge and confidence as well as your physical wellbeing when you attend our specialised Yoga and Pilates classes throughout your pregnancy. 

We are here to support your pregnancy/birthing experience and our classes focus on everything you need:

breathing – relaxation – positions for birth
strength – tone – flexibility
friends – support – education

When your body moves, your baby benefits from extra blood flow, helping him/her to grow healthy and strong.

When you breathe calmly and relax, your baby receives those calming hormones.

You’ll leave every class feeling light, relaxed and excited about your baby’s birth. 

Pregnancy Yoga contains more stretching and internal focus.  Pregnancy Pilates contains more strength and postural work.  They complement each other and you can mix and match.  Included are 4 classes per week, tailored to suit your busy lifestyle.

When’s the best time to begin? As early as possible.  When’s the second-best time to begin? NOW!

Suitable from first trimester right through until birth. You can even start at 39 weeks!

You don’t have to be super-fit or flexible to practice yoga – it’s suitable for every pregnant woman.

By attending 1-2 classes per week, you will build your confidence, knowledge and expand your friendship circle.

All equipment is supplied.

Wear comfy, stretchy clothing and bring your water bottle.

For your comfort, don’t eat a large meal within an hour and a half of class starting.

Members enjoy unlimited classes through the entirety of your pregnancy, until birth.

Non-members: first class $22.  Following classes: 6 class pass $120 – valid for 8 weeks.

If you’re in your last month or so of pregnancy you don’t have to buy a pass.

Pregnancy Yoga Tuesdays 6-7.30pm and Saturdays 9-10.15am followed by tea and chat

Pregnancy Pilates Tuesdays 11am-12.15pm and Thursdays 5.30-6.45pm

Balance your Body class

Do you want a comfortable pregnancy and a straight-forward birth?

If so, you will require balance in your body and plenty of space for baby to get into a good position in your pelvis.  In this short and fun couple session, you and your partner will learn skills from Spinning Babies and Optimal Maternal Positioning:

  • lots of simple skills to keep you comfortable and avoid backache so you can sleep and move well during your pregnancy
  • ways to sit, stand, rest and move for pregnancy comfort and to encourage your baby into a good position
  • learn why labour is shorter and easier when baby’s facing the right way and not back-to-back/posterior/OP
  • be informed about the actions you can take if you go past your due date, if labour takes too long to start or if you’re having an induction

Classes are held once a month and are ideal for couples. If your partner is not available, or you are going through the pregnancy journey as a solo parent, we’ll find you another pregnant woman to team up with.  We encourage couples to attend a minimum 2-3 classes during pregnancy to perfect and practice the techniques.  It’s a wonderful way for you and your partner to learn together, connect with one another and bond with your baby.  Every class ends with a guided relaxation. 

Membership includes two group sessions.

Non-members: Group session $30 for mums and partners come for free.  

If you prefer a private session, cost is $60.  To book your private session call 0424 226 490  or email karen@birthandbabyvillage.com.au

Free: Your Options for Birth sessions

How and where to have your baby. All of your questions answered.

As soon as you’ve settled into your pregnancy you’ll want to start making decisions about where to give birth and who’s going to look after you. This can be overwhelming as there are so many wonderful options here on the Sunshine Coast.  The decision you make will influence the type of birth you have. Do you want a natural water birth, an elective caesarean, a known midwife or a homebirth? Do you want a free service or to pay for your care? We understand that these are important decisions for you, and we’ve made the process easy by outlining each option clearly for you.

You will receive many differing opinions from friends and family, which at times can feel overwhelming. But keep in mind that your birth is YOUR birth, so you may want something different. Upon discovering your exciting news, bring your partner and come to our free session to hear about your options. Our highly trained educators offer all of the information you require, simply and completely, so that you can make these important decisions based on knowledge and commonsense.

Past clients have changed caregivers and place of birth as late as 39 weeks when they realised they were not feeling as comfortable as they had hoped. We strongly believe that it is never too late to learn about your choices. Ask questions, meet other couples, meet our birth experts and leave feeling confident and excited about your baby’s birth.
Our free sessions are held a few times each month. Bring your partner so you can make the best decisions for your family.

Sessions are free.
