Turtle Tums is a specialist Aqua-Natal Yoga course developed in association with Birthlight. Aqua Natal Yoga is a beautifully effective pre-natal exercise with low impact stress using water resistance, buoyancy and adapted yoga poses in the relaxing environment of a warm water pool.
Aqua Natal Yoga prepares you and your body for birth by teaching you controlled breathing and gentle exercises, designed specifically for child birth only and is an ideal form of pre-natal exercise irrespective of your level of fitness. Maintaining fitness during pregnancy will also help you cope better with the birth and speed your return to full post-natal fitness.
The classes are 45 minutes and are suitable for Mummies-to-be 14 plus weeks to Childbirth. The courses run on a 5 week cycle up to 36 weeks of Pregnancy and then on a weekly basis up to 40+(5). Continuation up to birth is very much on your personal wellbeing, but is still very beneficial and safe in the preparation for the birth of your baby.
Our classes have numerous health and well-being benefits, but it’s also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded mums-to-be, whilst bonding with your unborn baby and having a fantastic and safe workout. And, when the little ones are born, the friendships can continue by introducing your little ones to the wonderful World of Baby Swimming Classes at Turtle Tots.

Hypnobirthing teaches you breathing, visualisation, and powerful Hypnosis techniques. These enable you to take control and remain calm, confident and in control during your baby’s labour, birth, and beyond. In essence, to have the best possible birth for you, your Partner and your baby. Hypnobirthing has grown massively in the last ten years due to the fact it works and most Midwives are fully supportive of it.
I am your local Teacher, a Hypnobirthing mum of two myself and a qualified and experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist. I have been teaching Hypnobirthing locally for seven years now. I cover Malton, Scarborough and the wider Ryedale area. I have trained in both Marie Mongan and Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing methods. My skills as a Hypnotherapist mean I can also help you with other minor pregnancy issues should you need it e.g. sleep problems, discomfort or other.
Classes are normally held at my quiet, purpose built Hypnotherapy room in Norton, Malton or in couples own home if they prefer. They are usually held on a Monday or Thursday evening or Saturday mornings or alternative by prior arrangements.
There are a few options with the Hypnobirthing I offer. There is a full Katharine Graves Hypnobirthing and antenatal course which is 12.5 hours usually delivered in 5 x 2.5 hour time slots. I also offer shorter, condensed versions to suit your requirements. I want as many parents-to-be to be able to have the benefits of Hypnobirthing if they would like to.
It is recommended to begin Hypnobirthing from 24 – 32 weeks into pregnancy.
Cost on application.

Because NCT has nearly 60 years’ experience in supporting new mums and dads, you can rely on our range of courses to support you through pregnancy, birth and your new life as a parent.
All NCT courses are led by specially trained and experienced practitioners who understand what matters to new mums and dads. And don’t forget, every NCT course gives you the opportunity to meet other parents in your area.
In the NCT Signature antenatal course more than half of the course covers the birth of the baby, plus plenty of time to explore questions, hopes and anxieties in a safe and supportive space. Courses feature information about pregnancy, birth and becoming a parent, with content tailored to the needs of the small group taking part. The courses are usually 18 hours in length and include a dedicated session on breastfeeding and an information pack to take away with you.
Our NCT Essentials antenatal course is our newest course. It’s the shorter and most affordable antenatal course we offer. Every course follows the same, important six themes delivered over six 2-hour sessions. On this course parents will get practical information and emotional support for pregnancy, plus the knowledge and techniques to prepare for the birth of the baby. About half of this course covers important information to help care for the baby.
Everyone is welcome to pay by instalments and we offer discounts for parents in receipt of benefits or on lower incomes. Please request further information from the course organiser when you enquire about your course.
