WELCOME TO BELLYTOTS
Services for Pregnancy, Postnatal Recovery & Newborn Support
Welcome to BellyTots, a safe and confidential space for Nurturing Mamas & Mamas-to-be, to come together for support, conversation, friendships, pre & postnatal pilates & yoga, baby yoga, massage, healing, reflection, celebration and much, much more.
BellyTots specialises in services for Pregnancy, Postnatal Recovery and Newborn Support.
My aim at BellyTots is to provide a truly holistic approach to supporting and nurturing you into motherhood and beyond. I specialise in pre and postnatal pilates as well as baby yoga and pregnancy exercises which are yoga inspired. These exercises help women physically prepare for birth (both natural and caesarean section) as well as help to physically recover after birth. The exercises also enable new mums to gain strength both in body and mind, to learn to love and care for their postnatal body, and to have the energy to enjoy caring for and playing with their children. I also work with specialists providing both emotional and practical support for new parents. My resident team include Sarah, our Breastfeeding Counsellor and Kathryn, our Perinatal Mental Health Professional.
I've been working with parents, particularly women, for well over 15 years with both the National Childbirth Trust (NCT) and within the National Health Service (NHS). I have supported all types of people, from the most vulnerable to celebrities, in settings which include hospitals, children's centres and Her Majesty's Prison.
I am a trained nurse and a qualified First-Aider. I am DBS checked and hold Public Liability Insurance.
At BellyTots you will find a number of classes and workshops to help you in your pregnancy journey to becoming a new mum (either for the first time, or again), and also to support you into motherhood once baby is born.
My sessions are held in Ruislip, Middx, and include:
Baby Yoga, Pregnancy Pilates & Yoga, Mum & Baby Strengthen and Stretch, NCT Baby Massage, NCT Antenatal Classes, Postnatal Recovery Pilates, and Trauma & Birth Reflection Support.
In addition, I also organise occasional events for the women I serve. These include: Weaning workshops, Birth Partner Workshops, Daddy & Me while Mummy has Tea, Pilates & Pinot nights and much more.
I look forward to welcoming you to the wonderful BellyTots community.
With love, Liz x

We've been telling the girls how lovely you are! :) We are also happy you have a class for older kids. There is no way my son would stay still for massage or yoga on Zoom anymore!
Planned c-section was an amazing experience. Deep breathing techniques from class were very helpful when the tugging/pressure was strong.
