We have a bright airy room at Snugglebugs where we hold a variety of classes and workshops to support women through pregnancy and the early months with their newborns.
Our Gentlebirth workshop runs over a weekend Saturday 1-6pm and Sunday 10-4pm.It’s a wonderful way to prepare together for a really positive birth.Clients who book our birth preparation workshop include those who are planning a natural birth, those who are planning to use an epidural and lots more who have not yet decided the type of birth they want.What most of our clients have in common is that they want to learn how to have a positive birth and they want to look forward to the birth of their baby, rather than fear it.There is a maximum of 6 couples per workshop so early booking is advised.If you have any questions or would like to book a place please contact Tricia at 0879981367 or email Tricia at firstname.lastname@example.org

Birthlight ‘baby yoga’ is an inclusive set of practices to enhance playful interaction and communication between parent and baby and to promote their healthy development. Baby Yoga perfectly compliments baby massage and expands the benefits of touch with those of movement and relaxation.
Baby yoga helps to attune to your baby’s needs and to calm or stimulate them as appropriate with a sense of security and wellbeing. It is beneficial for all babies, you don’t need to practice yoga or even know anything about yoga to get started with your baby. From birth babies respond positively to the stimulation of movement and touch together. Baby Yoga includes a wide range of different practices that can be combined to suit the needs of each baby or toddler through their individual development.
Baby yoga offers quality physical stimulation that has become essential in an urban sedentary lifestyle. For every hour that babies spend strapped in cars seats or home seats, 5 minutes of Baby Yoga provide stretching as a start to a healthy lifestyle. Baby yoga can be practised instantly anywhere at any time and always generates a joyful interaction
Baby Yoga is €60 for 5 classes and can be booked with Tricia Text 0879981367 or email email@example.com
