Free pregnancy and postnatal yoga sessions for pregnant women and mothers with newborns are being held at Stroud Maternity Hospital and Rodborough.

The pregnancy yoga has been successfully running 4 groups since January 2018. The courses are aimed at supporting the emotional well being and mental health of childbearing women and their newborns.

The feedback has been great with many saying that they would recommend it to others.

“The yoga was very helpful and enjoyable”.

“It’s a gentle and lovely way to spend time engaging with the baby”.

Postnatal Yoga

The group is run as a drop in – no booking is required and aimed at mothers with babies from 6 weeks – 12 months. Again it is felt that the postnatal yoga sessions are very good.

“The yoga teacher is very responsive to the needs of everyone and the group is really inclusive”.

“I like the…pace of yoga…felt really beneficial and was as important as having time to chat with other mums”.
