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.
