The primary purpose of all Window to the Womb scan packages is the health and well-being of your baby as we know from experience that this is the first priority of every single expectant mother that we see. Additionally private baby scans can also allow you and your family to start the vitally important process of bonding with your unborn baby; there is significant evidence of the value of this early relationship building" - The Window to the Womb Team

Turtle Tots in Salisbury is run by Becky, an NCT Antenatal teacher, who has plenty of knowledge to share with you in her classes. She believes that swimming benefits our little ones immeasurably, especially when we start practicing so young. It can help develop core strength and stamina, progress gross motor skills (such as reaching and grabbing), and the classes themselves can aid communication and emotional intelligence through their use of music!
The Turtle Tots programme begins with aqua-natal yoga for mums-to-be and then continues until your baby is a toddler, with lessons that develop at your baby's pace. The lessons are taught by highly trained teachers, and have a strong focus on life-saving skills from a young age. The environment is always non-competitive, and fosters a strong bonding, trusting, respectful atmosphere, instilling in your little ones a lifelong love of water.
For the mums who bring their little ones along, it is a good introduction to post-natal fitness and gives you a fun, dedicated time in which to bond with your child.
