Puddle Ducks Aquanatal

with Julie Dugdale

Classes take place in the soothing, warm comfort of pools around Newcastle, providing one of the safest ways to exercise in pregnancy.


Puddleducks' Aquanatal classes take a holistic approach to mums’ physical and mental well-being, combining relaxation with cardiovascular exercises to help prepare the body for labour. Exercise and relaxation release your body’s natural happy hormones, endorphins, which suppress pain and help you (and baby) feel calm – not only helpful in later pregnancy, but also really important during and after labour.

And once baby arrives, the familiar noise of the pool means they’ll be relaxed when you take them swimming too, while you can use the exercise techniques to get gently back into shape.

Experience the perfect balance of relaxation, laughter and exercise - a wonderful way to unwind and stay healthy in pregnancy!
