New aqua natal classes in Berwick and Hexham 

Active Northumberland has launched new aqua natal pregnancy classes at their pools in Berwick and Hexham. 
The classes run every Tuesday at Wentworth Leisure Centre in Hexham and Berwick Sports Centre and include a perfect balance of gentle exercise, relaxation and fun. 
They are being run in partnership with the Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust whose midwives have been through accredited training and are leading the sessions. 
Jemma Burt, Active Wellbeing Coordinator said: 
“Swimming and exercise in water is a relaxing, beneficial and safe way for pregnant women to exercise.  
“If you fancy giving the classes a go, please get in touch. They will be fun and informal and as they are run by trained midwives you know you will be in safe hands. 
The aqua natal classes are part of Active Northumberland’s popular Mams on the Move programme which runs classes designed to help encourage women into safe, effective exercise classes and reap the physical, social and mental health benefits this brings. 
Classes run on Tuesdays 11am-12pm, cost £4 per session or are free to Active Northumberland members.
