About the classes

Blooming Bellies to Active Mums are two classes designed for your specific needs during the antenatal and postnatal period. The changes your body undergoes during the child bearing years require specific, targeted exercises by trained professionals to ensure that you safely remain strong and active.
Classes will have a large focus on core and pelvic floor muscle activation and strength through a range of functional lifts and movements, education and stretching.
These classes are the perfect transition back to pre-pregnancy fitness and sports, or future physical aspirations. Babies are more than welcome at our post natal sessions.

The best way to keep your baby healthy is to keep yourself healthy! 

Joining the classes

You will need to attend for a screening assessment with one of our women’s health physiotherapists prior to commencing classes to ensure it is safe for you to start and to ensure that you gain the most from the classes by developing individualised programs and setting personal goals.

Antenatally this can be done anytime after 12 weeks. Postnatally, this will be done after your 6 week checkup with your obstetrician.

When & Where?

The classes are held in our Sippy DownsChermside Sports & Spinal Clinics. Please contact your local clinic for more information. You can view the class timetable here.

This is to familiarise patients with any equipment, positions, exercises and identify and injuries/restrictions we need to be aware of prior to attending a class.

What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is a specific therapist supervised treatment and exercise program in a heated pool (32°C).

What is Hydrotherapy beneficial for?

  • Post surgery (eg. total knee replacement)
  • Assisting with injury rehabilitation
  • Arthritis
  • Exercising sore and painful joints
  • General fitness/balance
  • Fracture recovery

The heated water encourages stiff muscles and joints to relax, whilst the buoyancy takes the load off the weight bearing joints allowing them to be exercised painlessly.

Improve strength and flexibility

Hydrotherapy is often used to improve strength and flexibility before beginning a gym or home based program. It is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Being at a constant safe depth it is not necessary to be a competent swimmer in order to benefit. Our therapists run several classes every week at the Cotton Tree, Buderim, Nambour, Kawana and Coolum pools. Our group classes provide a safe, professional and most of all enjoyable environment! Classes have generally no more than 10-12 patients per class, classes are kept small to ensure the physiotherapist can concentrate on each patient’s program.  Individual hydrotherapy sessions are also available by request.

How do I book in?

All patients are required to have an initial assessment with a Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist before beginning any of our classes. This is to familiarise patients with any equipment, positions, exercises and identify and injuries/restrictions we need to be aware of prior to attending a class.
A doctor’s referral is not required (unless you are claiming through Workcover or Veteran’s Affairs), but we do recommend that you get your doctor’s clearance to begin physical activity especially if you are recovering from an injury. We liaise closely with your medical practitioner to ensure the best results.
