Does this sound like you?

• You want to find some gentle exercise that's safe for pregnancy and will ease aches and pains?

• You're keen to keep active during pregnancy and learn about your body and baby during pregnancy and birth?

• You're wanting to find techniques and tools to ease discomfort during pregnancy, and in labour too?

If you're nodding along then you need to understand that...

the way we move in life has an impact on the way we birth

It all starts by understanding that all pregnancies and births different, just like every body is different. But there are things we can do to make the process more comfortable, and potentially easier.

Yoga in pregnancy has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, and promote a calmer, healthier pregnancy. Research has also shown that is can also help with labour and birth outcomes – potentially leading to a more positive birth.

A lifetime of moving in a certain way, the way you sit on the sofa, or the way you walk with a bag over one shoulder and in high all impacts how our body is balanced. Shortened, tense muscles on one side, and lengthened muscles on the other can lead to an imbalanced body. Muscles having to work harder, leading to more aches and pains.

Plus, a baby can only make use of the space they have - so an imbalanced body could make the birth journey more difficult.

But the great news is, pregnancy is a wonderful time to address a lifetime of imbalance as your body is already changing. You can't control exactly how birth goes, but you can control a lot of things. Start your journey off confidently, having taken control of the controllables when it comes to pregnancy and birth.

The way your birth impacts your early parenting journey. It can take a while to find your confidence. Taking control of your own journey is so important.

That's why I am so excited to welcome you to...

What's covered in our Pregnancy Yoga classes?



Discover how to ease tension for a more comfortable pregnancy and birth. Yoga can boost energy, improve sleep, relieve stress and anxiety, ease digestive discomforts, ease aches and pains, create strength and flexibility, ease heartburn, constipation - and make more room for you and baby! Movement is so important for pregnancy and birth.


Biomechanics - Active Birth

Every class includes education on your body, and the birth process - helping you understand the link between how muscles and joints work together to help pregnancy and birth happen. Getting the knowledge about your body and applying simple movements and techniques daily - simple easy wins you can continue at home.



Each class covers the main elements of hypnobirthing, and can be an introduction to the method. We focus on breathing techniques, understand the power of the mind and have a clear focus on relaxation and how to achieve it during pregnancy and birth.



Pregnancy Yoga is all about relaxation. Relaxed music, moves to promote muscle and mind relaxation. And a guided relaxation at the end of every class. Pregnancy Relaxation has been shown to improve pregnancy by lowering stress, whilst also having benefits for birth too.


Social Time

Antenatal classes are traditionally a place to meet your tribe, your mum friends going through the same things as you, at the same time. While we focus on education, community is also a huge part of what we do so there is lots of opportunity to chat and build friendships.

Client Feedback

"I loved attending Jilly’s active antenatal classes. They gave me a fantastic chance to relax and spend time with bump, while also giving me the confidence and right frame of mind to deal with labour. I got practical tips which I put to good use in labour and Jilly was brilliant! Highly recommended!"


Natalie - Pregnancy Yoga classes

"Jilly is a fantastic teacher and easy to learn from. She is so encouraging and teaches her class in a way that is not only relaxing but informative and fun. I would highly recommend any expectant mother to do take part in this course, it really is one of the best things I have done preparing for my baby's arrival."


Laura - Pregnancy Yoga classes

The class has the right combination of education and relaxation. It was also nice to meet other pregnant ladies to discuss our experiences."

Why Choose CubCare for your Pregnancy Yoga Classes?

I'm Jilly, and I know the power of good antenatal education. I've been a pregnancy yoga, hypnobirthing, active birth and antenatal teacher since 2014. I have helped thousands of families have a better pregnancy and birth experience.

I came into this business after a difficult birth experience with my first, and wanted to find a different way for any future babies I had. I did the NHS antenatal classes in person and felt like I didn't get any new information. Similarly, I did NCT antenatal classes and they didn't prepare me for the realties of birth.

I discovered through my training, how amazing it is to combine hypnobirthing and body mechanics science (through pregnancy yoga). Safe to say, my second birth experience was a world away from my first – and one I still smile about now, 8 years on! And what I didn't anticipate is how much better my postnatal and parenting experience was, because I'd had a birth where I felt in control.

What I learned is that when you work with your body during pregnancy to make it as balanced as possible, and when you have a whole bunch of tricks up your sleeve for coping with labour sensations…you can turn any birth journey into a positive one.

Having a body that isn't restricted, that can move, is so important for the pregnancy and birth journey. Keeping your body moving is vital for easing pregnancy discomfort, but knowing the right way to move is key.

Do I really need pregnancy yoga?

It is important to prepare your body for birth, but pregnancy yoga isn’t compulsory. It is a really gentle form of exercise that works well in pregnancy to lengthen and strengthen key muscles, to help you to adapt to your changing body as baby grows.

But also it allows space to relax and connect with your pregnancy, whilst balancing your body for birth and recovery.

I am planning a caesarean birth is this class still worth it?

Yes absolutely! The movement and relaxation can help you during pregnancy to ease discomfort and help prepare your mindset for birth.

Our movements can help with baby’s positioning, which can help with the cesearean operation and aid recovery too. Plus also the breathing and relaxation techniques will be very useful in the build up to the operation, to ease anxiety and nerves, to help with any pain afterwards and whilst recovering.  

Plus, depending on the reason why a caesarean might be the best option for you, there may be a chance that your baby has other ideas before the date. So, having prepared for all eventualities you will be calmer and feeling more in control of the situation. 

Also, classes are a wonderful opportunity to meet others who are also pregnant and start your journey with a support network already in place.
