As a Midwife Ira has been delivering services to Canberra's (Australian Capital Territory, Australia) women and their families since 2001. To-day, together with a clinical practice, she shares her wit and inspirations offering safe and powerful Aquanatal exercise to Canberra expecting women and postpartum Mums.
Research revealed that exercising 150 minutes per week brings the most significant health benefits to both, Mum and Bub. Also it is proven in medical trials that regular exercise in pregnancy reduces the risk of caesarean section and instrumental delivery. Exercising in the pool is not everyone's preference but if you love to feel weightless and be soothed by warm (32 degrees temperature) water, you can take Aquanatal program classes at Belconnen and do other exercise as well. In the future we aim to offer classes in Greenway-Tuggeranong and Gungahlin.
