Supporting women with pregnancy yoga, positive birth support & empowerment.
My name is Claire, I have been working with pregnant women since 2004 supporting them during pregnancy, birth & beyond through a variety of services. The classes offered by Ripple are for every woman – many of our mamas-to-be have never done yoga before.
It’s amazing to witness how yoga can support the ever-changing body during the life changing empowered experience of pregnancy, birth and how beneficial it is during the postnatal months. A Ripple class will support and nourish you, mama-to-be, plus many friendships are created with this bond. It is wonderful to be in such a beautiful position to support and continue to motivate and inspire other mamas in the community. Truly honoured ….
Claire’s sensitive, informed and non judgemental delivery of the classes, the opportunity to chat with other mums to be in a safe and caring environment was important for my preparation into motherhood.

Whether it’s your first baby or your third I am confident that the classes offered will help you cope with the changes, connect to your baby and improve your wellbeing.
A large percentage of our clients are recommended to us by other clients and this is something I am truly proud of. The classes support and nourish mamas-to-be and many friendships are nurtured in our classes (and through our private community Facebook group). These supportive friendships that are nurtured during the pregnancy yoga or postnatal yoga classes are a new mama’s and her baby’s first community of friends and usually are friends for life.
If you are interested or want further information about the classes please feel free to contact me, I will be very happy to help! Alternatively take a peek at my website to find out more about the services I offer. I look forward to hearing from you soon – Thank you for connecting and wanting to join the Ripple family … we are one “big” family based in Northampton, UK.
“It’s not just a yoga class, it’s an education, it’s elating, encouraging, an emotional support network. The lot! There’s nothing else quite like it!” Liz, new mummy
What’s in it for you?

I have supported over 1200 families since I started in 2004 and feel very passionate that I have added a little extra magic to each of these families experiences.
I don’t offer concessionary places, because I believe my prices are fair and reflect my level of training and experience. However, I know that during your pregnancy and postnatally these times can be financially very stressful. So if money is an issue, I would always rather you made me a reasonable offer than simply stayed away. (This also applies if your financial circumstances change once you have a space in a class.)
I am also open to offers of skill swaps/exchange of services.
I do not offer taster classes. This would not be beneficial to you and would only give you an insight into the theme for the week not the whole package and how beneficial that is to you when planning for the birth of your baby.
I do offer clients who wish to book a combination of classes, courses or just want to know that they have the security of a weekly space packages at a discounted rate.
Please read the Booking conditions clearly when booking classes. No time wasters please … if a space is available then jump in quick because it may be gone in a flash.
