Pilates during pregnancy is a safe, challenging experience that will help strengthen your body and mind for your birth experience and assist in a quicker recovery. All our classes are designed and run by physiotherapists with you and your baby in mind.
All pregnancy Pilates programs begin with an initial one-on-one assessment and workshop where we discuss any past history or pregnancy-related issues you may be experiencing. We will also determine your own personal goals for labour and after the arrival of your baby.
A thorough but gentle physical assessment will be carried out to determine any postural weaknesses and pelvic floor issues. Following this a workshop will be conducted where our physiotherapists will ensure that you have optimal activation of your central core muscles and pelvic floor.
Medical clearance from your GP or Obstetrician is compulsory before commencing the pregnancy Pilates classes.
