PRE + POST NATAL

We are excited to announce the trial of our 5 week term of Pregnancy and Mums + Bubs Reformer classes with our very ownWomen’s Health Physiotherapist – Hayley Holmes.

Pregnancy Reformer

Time: Saturdays 11am

Next start date: Coming soon – please express your interest by sending us an email – click here

What to bring: Grip socks and water bottle

These classes are designed for all stages of pregnancy and will focus on pelvic floor activation, pregnancy safe abdominal exercises, upper and lower limb strengthening and spinal mobility. We will also provide education on pregnancy, birth and beyond whilst you exercise with women who may become your new social network.

It is recommended to have an appointment with a Women’s Health Physiotherapist prior to your first class for a real time ultrasound assessment to teach the correct activation of the pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscles. This will also allow us to be aware of any issues and ensure appropriate modifications are made.

Mums + Bubs

Time: Wednesdays 11:30am

Next start date: 13th October 2021

What to bring: Grip socks, water bottle and please bring your pram, mat and any toys for bub. 

These classes may be started after your 6 week check up with your Obstetrician or GP and continued until your baby is on the move (unfortunately for safety reasons we can’t accommodate the crawlers!). 

Reformer is a great low impact way to get back into exercise after having a baby. These classes will focus on pelvic floor activation, abdominal rehabilitation, upper and lower body strength and posture. They also include spinal mobility and stretch to prevent or relieve those aches and pains associated with caring for your baby.

We strongly recommend a postnatal Women’s Health Physiotherapy check prior to starting classes irrespective of whether you experience any issues. Whilst these classes are still safe for those with abdominal separation, pelvic girdle pain, prolapse or incontinence to name a few, these conditions must be appropriately assessed and managed with a Women’s Health Physiotherapist.
