Baby Development




Birthlight is a friendly, informal educational charity, founded by Françoise Barbira Freedman, focusing on a holistic approach to pregnancy, birth and babyhood using yoga and breathing methods to enhance you and your babies well-being.

Emmaline Kitson was a senior tutor within birthlight and has enjoyed 10 years of partnership. Birthlight are pioneers in pre and post natal yoga, Aqua Yoga, Baby Yoga and Baby Swimming.

Over the last 20 years we have developed simple practices inspired by yoga and the parenting style of Amazonian forest people to reach an increasing number of parents, midwives, teachers and careers. The application of adapted exercises and relaxation in the water, has proved most beneficial to pregnancy, birth and the first crucial years of child development. Our charter is contained in the word 'Birthlight', birthing lightly using the breath and the awareness of breathing without due strain, and also to the light, the spiritual dimension of birth, which is often forgotten.
