Donna's 15 tips for safe exercise in pregnancy

Like us on Facebook

Welcome to Sydney Aquanatal!

I  have been a midwife for over 12 years and I am also a qualified Child and Family Health Nurse. My passion for pregnancy exercise and Aquanatal goes back a long way.

During my midwifery degree, I trained as an Aquanatal instructor and conducted a research study into the experiences of women participating in Aquanatal exercise. I then worked for 4 years as an Aquanatal midwife in London. I have completed a Certificate III in Fitness and Aquafit Instructor training and I am an accredited BirthSkills practitioner. You can find out more about my qualifications and professional affiliations here.

I believe Aquanatal to be the safest and most appropriate form of exercise in pregnancy. It's also a great way to pick-up exercising again and to get back into shape after the birth. That's why I have started Sydney Aquanatal.

Two of my three children were born in the UK and I participated in Aquanatal programs throughout the two pregnancies, right up until the week of their birth. When I was pregnant with my third child in Sydney, I was disappointed that Aquanatal was not available here. Instead, I swam laps and did my own Aquanatal exercises at a local pool to keep fit and active. Whilst this was great, it didn't compare to the fun and companionship I enjoyed at my local Aquanatal class in the UK.

Exercise in pregnancy is about keeping active and preparing yourself mentally and physically for the demands of pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood.

That's what Aquanatal classes can help you to do.

If you'd like to know more about Aquanatal and where you can join a Sydney Aquanatal™ class, check the FAQ and the Aquanatal Classes page. If you can't find the answer there, please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.
