CHILDBIRTH PREPARATION CLASSES – METHOD AIPAP®
CHILDBIRTH PREPARATION CLASSES IN OUR POOL – METHOD AIPAP®
The AIPAP® method is a program of childbirth preparation classes: its objective is to improve the pregnant woman’s overall physical condition, and the mobility of pelvic articulations. During each class you will train and prepare all the muscles, ligaments and tendons which will be solicited during delivery. In addition, our midwives will accompany you throughout your pregnancy answering all your questions! Penguins is the only official AIPAP® center in Barcelona.
How do our AIPAP® pregnancy classes work?
- All of our classes are designed and supervised by midwives. They are weekly classes of 40 minutes.
- You can sign up from the beginning of pregnancy and classes can be done until the day of delivery!
- All our facilities keep the water at the same temperature for your maximum comfort
- You can sign up at any time at any of our facilities: at this link for Barcelona, at this link for Sant Cugat.
- The first payment is made by card and from the second month with direct debit. You will see that the first month the system calculates the proportional part of the remainder of the month. From the second month on, all fees are always the same regardless of the number of classes taken.
- In AIPAP® classes we give the option to cancel and make up classes. For more information see here.
- In addition, if you give birth during a current month of classes, with the pending amount of the classes not taken, you will obtain a voucher that you can exchange for classes with your baby once he/she is born!
- You will love our classes and they will be great for you and your future baby 🙂
