I attended Jessica's pregnancy yoga when I was pregnant with my twins, it was the highlight of my week. Being really nervous about giving birth naturally to twins Jessica and her classes helped to alleviate my fears and enable me to give birth naturally to my twins and I was calm and relaxed throughout !!! I would highly recommend her classes to every pregnant woman for two main reasons, you will feel more prepared for the actual birth and each week the yoga class relaxes and calms you. Juliet
I would really recommend Jessica's Pregnancy yoga and Couple's classes. The former is a really good activity and chance to meet other women at the same stage as you. We recently completed the couple's classes as we are near our due date, these were almost more useful for my partner, who has less chance to meet other men going through the same thing with the same type of questions (as friends are not at the same stage as us). Overall the two lots of classes have given me (us) a thorough preparation for childbirth- cannot imagine having been without.
