Hello, I currently have a lady in my Aquanatal class who is suffering very badly with SPD she is around 30 weeks. She has now contacted a Chiropractor as she is close to tears. She does get relief from being in the wate and she is careful not to do anything moves wide. She finds it hard to sleep and when she is at work she struggles to stand up from her desk (she is unable to sit on a core ball) I have advised her some movements but I feel she is doing the same thing every lesson. Can anyone advise any moves that I could introduce which you have had success with?

Thank you for your advise!

Best Wishes

Hayleigh

Hi Hayleigh,

Have you thought of showing this lady all our postnatal adaptations? particularly all the twisting movements to the wall and floating. The more she can tone the supporting muscles that help keep the symphysis pubis together (have a look at them again) the more relief she will get. At the same time, encourage her to practise birthing breathing and pelvic floor release with her shoulders submerged so that all the muscle chains are involved and she does not 'close' her body with the postnatal exercises. It's a delicate balance but try and explore what makes her smile... Also be very careful not to undo the benefits of aquayoga by having her heave herself on a pool ladder with wide apart bars! it is important to help her with entries and exits are these are probably the main risky parts of the session...

Do let me know how the situation develops and perhaps you will get more feedback from other aquanatal teachers. All best, Francoise.

Hi Francoise,

Thank you for the advice I tried this in my class on Sunday and will carry on every week she enjoyed the postnatal twists and felt as though it gave her back some releif too.We have concrete steps at the pool so they are easier for her to get in and out and she finds them okay.

Also I have my first baby in my group. Rowan had a baby boy in a planned home birth he was 10lb in weight and she used the labour breathing and golden thread breath and didn't have any tearing or medical intervention and she said the breathing was a great help so I am really please :0)

Thanks Francoise

Best Wishes

Hayleigh

Hi Hayleigh, Thank you for sending feedback! I trust that the more you apply the Birthlight moves, the greater your confidence will grow as an Aquanatal Yoga teacher, simply because these moves are effective! I hope that your lady gets better each week in preparation for her birth. And many congratulations on the birth of your first class baby! this is a very lucky and encouraging event. We cannot guarantee birth outcomes but each birth that does not require medical intervention is a cause for celebration, without hurting the feelings of the mums who have needed intervention... this is a delicate balance you need to get experience with, in case not all the women in your class have the same ideal birth scenario! love and best wishes Francoise.
