We’ll be with you from the very start of pregnancy
Training for giving birth and caring for your baby will help you acquire the physical and mental strength to give birth, a process that lets your body express its full potential.
Our gymnastics sessions for pregnant women, in the pool or on dry land, combine elements of aerobics, flexibility, relaxation, and conditioning exercises with learning to constantly control your breathing. Postnatal conditioning sessions can be attended by mothers either separately or together with their babies.
Our massage programs are specifically designed for pregnant women, new mothers and babies, and focus on achieving relaxation and reduce pregnancy discomfort, on post-birth recovery, as well as on toning the baby’s muscles and joints during the first months of its life.
We are the first pelvic care and conditioning center to operate in Romania. We provide a full package of classes, gymnastics programs, and services for women who are interested in conditioning their pelvic floor during pregnancy and pelvic recovery after birth.
