'So all in all I had a relatively short labours in which I felt pretty much in control and didn't need any stitches or anything. So thank you very much for teaching me those very useful Yoga techniques and helping me to gain confidence in the capabilities of my own body in each of my three pregnancies.'
Gill’s aim is that women can feel more comfortable in their pregnancies and more calm and confident about birth. Since pioneering holistic Pregnancy Yoga classes from 2003 in Belfast and Lisburn, Northern Ireland she has taught over 10, 000 women, creating a supportive, friendly environment. Common problems can be shared and addressed within the Yoga practice and women can discuss problems and connect with each other- many returning with fourth and fifth pregnancies. The classes are suitable for complete beginners to Yoga.
