SLEAFORD Leisure centre has become the first in the country to offer Underwater Sound Sessions for pregnant women.
The classes, which are run by Aqson using an underwater sound system, provide relaxation for mum and baby, can enhance development and build a strong bond between mother and child .
The water allows the sound to be heard from within the womb more clearly than it would be through the air.
Contract manager for operator 1Life Matt Stothard said: “It’s a pleasure to be able to offer these classes to soon-to-be mums across the community, and to be the only centre currently doing so in the UK.
“The classes promote bonding between mother and child and relaxation which provides excellent benefits for pregnant ladies and we expect the sessions to be very popular.”
If successful, 1Life will seek to roll out the class for expectant mothers throughout all their swimming pools.
