    My lovely husband has bought me a course of pregnancy massage at the Elemis Day Spa in London. My first one is on Wednesday I can't wait. Has anyone had one and does it help?

    Also I will be due to start my pregnancy yoga classes soon and wondered if anyone else on here practices it and has some feedback on how they have found it?

    I didn't know such things existed tbh, sounds great though! Lucky you! The nearest thing I can find is a 'beautiful bump' spa treatment, but i think that's different, and i can't afford it :(
    You'll have to tell us all about it!

    Wanted to do yoga myself, the classes were about 100 miles away tho and on sat morn and i work! :( somebody who works at a gym told me that it not good to start exercise classes in middle of pregnancy if you not done the exercises before as too much for body with the changes of pregnancy aswel. have bought a yoga for pregnancy dvd off amazon tho :) not watched yet. swimmings supposed to be good too they do aquanatal classes at my leisure centre which im contemplating going to too x

    Hey Anna, pregnancy pilates sounds good. Did you do pilates before?

    There are lot's of pregnancy yoga dvd's on Amazon, I got 2 one for now and one for labour and birth.

    I'll let you know how I get on. The advice I was given is that it is really good for getting the baby in position and for building strength in the right places for labour and recovery. It is okay if you haven't done it before as it is a lot more relaxed in its approach then the hard core non pregnancy yoga.

    If anyone gets a DVD or joins a class in either pilates or Yoga, let me know how you get on. :D

    No never. It's good because it focuses on posture and getting up / sitting etc, which is great because i'm doing everything wrong...no wonder my back is killing. Also we have a lovely relaxation / visualisation section at the end which we can use during the birth.....
    i however, will be using it, alongside my big fat EPIDURAL!!!! :rotfl:

    I was just online looking for pregnancy yoga DVDs, but would love to go to a real class. I'm not very good at finding things....where did you find out about the pregnancy yoga classes?
