Introducing a programme of exercise into your life is a very positive decision. This is particularly so while you are pregnant with the challenges of carrying your growing baby, giving birth, and post-natal months ahead. Exercising on a regular basis can improve circulation, encourage flexibility and suppleness and let you focus on your natural breathing patterns. It also enables you to have confidence in your body, to approach birth optimistically and without fear. The exercise classes for pregnancy will introduce you to helpful breathing techniques, massage as well as other useful exercises for labour. The classes are designed for women in their second trimester up to labour and birth. Classes are held at St.Andrews Church Hall. Contact Carol Isler. www.BirthEnergetics.com or call 062 777 10 35.

The program is taught by a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI®) of the International Loving Touch Foundation. Included in the course are an infant massage booklet and bottle of massage oil. The course will be taught using individualized assistance from the instructor, video, discussion, and literature about massage and child development issues. Come join other moms and babies for a fun and relaxing course that will bring you closer to your baby in ways that will benefit both of you forever!
