Wonderfully relaxing active birth preparation class, combining movement, breathing, understanding of active birth, relaxation, and techniques to lessen any fears and enjoy a positive birth.
Classes will enable you to have an easier, more comfortable pregnancy, help with getting baby in the right place for an optimum delivery, preparing key birth muscles, and helping your body to 'know' what to do on your big day. Our education is delivered as you move, to create intuitive 'muscle memory' - in labour your body will simply 'remember' while you stay calm and in control.
Classes are beneficial even if you know you will have to have a more assisted delivery or C section. They are suitable for 1st or susequent pregnancies, and for ladies with SPD or pelvic girdle pain.
Classes have a friendly, calm and relaxed atmosphere.
Suitable from 14 -42 weeks.
For the mum to be and her birthing partner. No nonsense education in practical language, an understanding of the physiology of labour, what helps and what hinders, and techniques to enable partners to provide meaningful support. Leave with a toolkit of techniques to dip into through labour and birth.

Daisy Baby is a unique take on traditional baby massage and baby yoga, with a class format that appreciates that babies need time in arms too. An amazing class plan devised over 7 years of research, which really understands the needs of baby and mum, and what works in those early weeks and months
Classes encourage ‘positive touch’ for baby with massage, gentle yoga and reflexology techniques. Learn to manage colic, reflux, constipation and other common baby issues. And understand and find out how to switch on baby’s calm button!
By bringing together positive touch, baby yoga inspired movement, movement for mum and relaxation into one complete class with lots of opportunity to have babe in arms, mums find they are usually able to participate for longer and with more enjoyment! And when baby feels it is all too much, our beautiful white noise lullabies soothe them off to sleep!
For parents in the immediate 6 weeks post birth. 3 hour session. Helping you to learn about calming, soothing, safe swaddling (pros and cons), winding, settling, early massage, and post labour body care for mum. Understand what makes your baby tick in those first few weeks.

I did a 6 week baby massage and yoga course with Anna for my youngest child and it was brilliant. Anna has a great way of including everyone in the group and provides a very welcoming environment. She is so relaxed - you never have to feel worried if your baby is a bit stressed out that day. I had previously done a baby massage course for my older child but much preferred Anna's - she is very creative, bringing in props, providing relaxation for the Mums (if possible!) at the end, bells for the babies to listen to and encourages the babies to look at each other. Her classes are great for relaxing and calming for Mums and Babies alike and we have now built baby massage into our everyday routine at home. I think she does a fantastic job and have recommended her to all my pregnant friends.
I found Anna's course to be a lovely bonding experience for my younger daughter and I. I enjoyed the structure of the classes and Anna was great at explaining what we were doing and why eg: connecting the right hand to the left foot helps connect fibres in the brain. I found her to be a fabulous teacher and my daughter still really enjoys the massages!
I took Sam to a 5 week course with Lazy Daisy when he was 4 months old and we had a great time. Anna creates a brilliant ambiance in the class by doing songs and nursery rhymes for the mum’s and children to sing along to together and you feel a real connection with your baby. Anna herself is great! She’s friendly, approachable and really interested in the babies; she even gave me some useful techniques to use at home. Anna also sets some time aside for some mums relaxation which was very thoughtful and much appreciated.
Anna's classes (Baby Massage, Wrigglers) are wonderful. She makes all babies and Mums so welcome Her approach is fantastic! Classes are fun, relaxing, babies seem to enjoy them and are very calm afterwards.
The Lazy Daisy birthing class I attended helped me to feel in control of my labour and confident about my ability to deliver our beautiful baby girl... the relaxation breathing was invaluable and I purchased the music from the class which I played on repeat throughout my labour as it helped to provide a positive and calm environment that I felt comfortable in. Anna Hayes provided professional one-to-one advice and support whilst teaching the small group I had joined, to ensure the exercises were tailored to my needs (at 40 weeks + 2 days my mobility was somewhat reduced when I first attended the workshop but Anna ensured I benefited from each exercise and relaxation). I would highly recommend Anna Hayes and Lazy Daisy.

I have had a professional career as a Speech and Language Therapist for twenty years, but after having my own children I felt inspired to take a change of direction. I am passionate about all things pregnancy, birth and baby, and when I discovered the amazing classes offered by Lazy Daisy I knew that was what I wanted to do. I love seeing mums and babies bonding in Daisy Baby class, babies relaxed and often giggling, and mums leaving with confidence. And I think my background in speech, language and communication really enhances what I do now. Daisy Birthing classes really are amazing - if I had had the opportunity to take classes my two birth experiences would have been so different. I'm so lucky to be able to empower other women now.
