Aquanatal Exercise

24131-Active -March -2016-EDM-aquanatal

I am a qualified nurse, and registered midwife with 30 years' experience and an advanced diploma in midwifery. I have worked in the hospital and community, and have 4 years' experience working in SCBU in Manchester.  Since April 2015 I have worked in breast care with Consultant Matthew Stephenson, the new oncoplastic surgeon. 

I trained to be an Aquanatal instructor in Leeds with Aquafusion, and here in Jersey with June Poole.  I am married and have three grown up children. My interests are cycling, walking, running and horse riding
 

The benefits of Aquanatal exercise for expectant mums includes:

  • Maintenance of fitness.
  • Improved appetite and digestion.
  • Improved sleep patterns.
  • Reduced physical discomforts of pregnancy.
  • Water resistance exercises strengthen muscle tone including the abdominal muscles.
  • Increased stamina.
  • Release of endorphins/feel-good hormones.
  • Improved posture and reduced strain on the back.
  • Contributes to a sense of well-being and improved self-esteem.
  • Leads to greater emotional and physical resilience.
  • Social benefit of meeting other mum's to be and forge life-long friendships.
  • AND IT'S FUN!

Classes are held on Tuesday evenings from 19.00 - 20.00 hrs at Les Quennevais Sports Centre.
