Nesting Lotus

About us

Welcome to Nesting Lotus, for all things pregnancy and midwifery in Leicester and Leicestershire. Founded in March 2022 by experienced midwives Lucy and Rheo, with a combined 20 years of midwifery expertise, Nesting Lotus was born out of a passion to provide exceptional care and support to expectant and new mothers in our community.


Our Story

Recognising a gap in the market during their own maternity leave, Lucy and Rheo set out to offer aquanatal classes led by midwives, filling a unique niche in Leicester and Leicestershire. We currently host three specialised aquanatal classes in various venues across Leicester, and our co-founder Lucy also spearheads Nesting Lotus Oasis, a bespoke program that combines aquanatal sessions, Pilates-based exercises, and relaxation techniques to cater to the holistic well-being of pregnant individuals.

Nesting Lotus is more than just aquanatal classes. We understand that the journey of pregnancy involves various unique needs and experiences. That's why we now offer private consultations, which can take place either before or after the birth of your baby. These consultations cover a wide range of topics, from discussing your birthing plan to providing post-birth support, including invaluable assistance with breastfeeding. We can connect with you over the phone or arrange for in-person consultations, making sure that you receive personalised care tailored to your specific needs.

Our dedication and commitment to exceptional service have not gone unnoticed. In 2023, Nesting Lotus proudly earned nominations for the 'This Mum Moves Award' and a 'North Leicestershire Sports Award,' highlighting our ongoing efforts to promote health and well-being in our community.

At Nesting Lotus, we're honoured to be a part of your pregnancy and after birth journey, offering guidance, support, and a warm community that embraces the beautiful journey of motherhood. Join us and experience the Nesting Lotus difference today.
