PRE/POST NATAL PILATES
In consultation with your GP our experienced physiotherapists can guide you through both pre and post natal pilates.
Pre Natal Pilates
Congratulations, you're pregnant or planning on having a baby soon! Your body is about to go through some serious changes and in order to best prepare you for pregnancy and childbirth it's vitally important, providing that you're not experiencing any complications that can restrict movement, that you continue to exercise in a safe manner so that you can recover from childbirth and reduce the risk of things like gestational diabetes.
Prenatal classes are for fit and active mums-to-be who want to complete exercises that are safe and supervised by experienced physiotherapists. Small groups of 2-4 enable our Physios to ensure you have plenty of hands on attention and focus.
