Benefits of Aquanatal During Pregnancy
- Studies have proven that women who do Aquarobics throughout their pregnancy need less pain relieving medication during childbirth.
- You will feel light, even weightless in the water. This will ease the weight of the baby on your body, and ease back aches and pains.
- Less strain on your bones and joints compared to land based exercise.
- Helps prevent spider veins.
- Aquarobics helps you relax and remain calm during pregnancy, relieves anxiety, and promotes a good nights sleep.
- Women who did Aquarobics in pregnancy were found to have easier deliveries and quicker post birth recovery.
Postnatal Benefits of Aquanatal
- Helps you to regain your pre-baby figure and lose weight.
- Relieves aches and pains, and improves circulation.
- Improves physical strength and stamina, and provides energy to help you care for your new baby.
- Exercise is important to lift mood and help combat general tiredness and postnatal depression.
- Provides much needed time out for Mums – why not do a class then swim some laps, or go for a coffee or lunch with a friend at Nutrition Station right next door – childminding is available from 11 – 4pm weekdays in term time at Atmosphere Active Kids Club from 6 weeks of age.

“Whether a first time or more experienced Mum, everyone can benefit from Aquarobic exercise during pregnancy. It’s a special time just for Mums and their friends to exercise, meet other Mums to be, and chat all things pregnancy related. We often see long term friendships being forged, and a great sense of camaraderie and understanding between participants. It’s a great way to bond with baby and have time out from our busy lives, while also looking after your health and fitness – plus it’s fun!”. Julie, Aquarobics instructor.
Please note: You must seek clearance from your doctor before attempting any form of exercise during your pregnancy and before returning to exercise after the birth of your child.
