Antenatal & Postnatal Pilates
Mums2Be Classes are a one hour pregnancy exercise classes that have been carefully designed with the wellbeing of both you and bub in mind.
They are the perfect way to safely maintain fitness and strengthen the body whilst still respecting the changes that accompany pregnancy. Exercise during pregnancy has been shown to reduce the risk of pregnancy-related complications such as gestational diabetes, improve pelvic and lower back pain, lower the risk of labour complications and enhance mood by reducing stress, anxiety and depression.
An assessment is required before starting the class to assess your pelvic floor and lower abdominal function, and to screen for bowel, bladder or musculoskeletal problems.
What we focus on
The classes have a specific focus on the pelvic-floor and lower abdominals. Your pre- exercise assessment includes an individualised real-time ultrasound assessment of these muscles to ensure you are engaging them correctly, as well as a screen of any bladder, bowel and musculoskeletal problems.
With a maximum of 8 participants, you can be rest assured that you will receive the upmost care and attention during your pregnancy journey.
