These classes are for rehabilitation and exercises performed will help you recover safely from the pregnancy and birth of your baby. Although our classes are designed by Physiotherapists or Exercise Physiologists, it is recommended that you have consulted with your obstetrician or GP at your 6 week post natal check up prior to participating in classes. If you have had a Caesarian section it is recommended you wait a little longer for things to heal (usually 12 weeks).
It is now a requirement that you have an assessment with a Physiotherapist or EP prior to participating. This is particularly important if you have any injuries, major abdominal separation, Caesar or underlying medical or painful conditions. This assessment may be claimable with private health funds.
Once you have had an assessment and been given the all clear, you will be given access to our pre recorded mums and bubs pilates mat classes via our private online facebook group for 6 weeks. You will also be able to participate in our mums and bubs reformer classes.
As we cannot always guarantee that the classes will be conducted by Physiotherapists, and clinical notes are not being kept, there is no rebate for our pilates classes and this is reflected in our prices which are comparable and interchangeable with our regular classes.
Classes are designed to help restore the strength and endurance of your pelvic floor and reduce separation of your tummy muscles. Participating can also help to relieve neck, shoulder and lower back pain or stiffness. Bringing your baby to class is also a fun and social way to meet other new mums in the community.
**As we do not have childcare facilities (and will be using reformer beds which can be dangerous for little fingers), we are unable to cater for mobile toddlers. These classes are best suited to mums with babies (6 weeks to 6 months) who are yet to crawl.
