“I love attending Aquanatal with Sara on a Tuesday evening. I am 28 weeks pregnant and it's great to know I can still exercise and keep fit without worrying about hurting myself or the baby.”
“Sara at Blissful Babies is brilliant! I would recommend the group to any newish mum ready to get her groove back.”
"Sara is warm and friendly, she welcomed me personally and makes sure I was ok and if she needed to know anything. She then introduced me to the group, who were also warm and friendly.”

A little bit about Sara
Midwife & Blissful Fitness Owner
Hi, firstly thank you for visiting my website, I hope you have found all the information you needed, but if not, please get in touch via email or Facebook.
My new Aquanatal and Pilates sessions are really exciting for me and I'm looking forwards to building a social community for Mums and Mums to be to make new friends and share their tips, tricks and experiences.
I qualified as a Midwife in 2006 after studying at UCE in Birmingham and trained within the Heart of England NHS Trust. Once qualified, I worked on the Solihull Labour Ward and Birthing Unit before moving to my current role as a Community Midwife in the Solihull area.
In 2017, following the birth of our 2nd son, I trained in the Aquanatal and Pilates instruction specifically for pregnancy which is underpinned by my Midwifery experience and qualifications. Since that time, I also qualified to teach Baby Yoga and Baby Massage courses which i absolutely adore doing ans especially as some of the mums exercised with me during their pregnancy. It's been amazing to see the little ones join in the classes.
I'm 34, have two beautiful boys, a great supportive husband and our amazing family dog, Bonnie (you may see her with me on my park workouts). In the years between our boys, I got in to keeping fit. I joined a number of fitness classes and did a few events like the Major Series and Race for Life. But when I was pregnant for the 2nd time, I had to reduce the level of activity and search for some low impact exercise. It was difficult to find sessions which were suitable or local.
So my hope is that I can offer something to you ladies that can still allow you to exercise, keep fit, build core strength, relax and mainly have some fun. I really hope to see you soon.
