Prenatal Exercise Classes

Maintaining or gaining  strength, stability, flexibility and fitness through regular gentle specific exercise while pregnant will make a world of difference once bub has arrived ! 

Pregnancy and childbirth put a great deal of stress on your body. Your posture changes and your ligaments stretch more due to the hormone “relaxin” being released throughout your body. You need good core stability and pelvic floor control  to support your abdomen and spine. Starting Clinical Exercise Classes at the beginning of your pregnancy will help build strength in the pelvic floor, core and surrounding muscles, which will set you up for better pelvic floor health postnatally.

At Higher Function Physio & Pilates , we offer;

  • An Initial Assessment with our Physiotherapist
  • Small group classes run by highly experienced Physiotherapists
  • Informative tips and tools to use in everyday life to make your pregnancy more comfortable
  • Clinically appropriate, evidence-based exercises designed for pregnancy and preparing your body for childbirth – targeting your pelvic floor to decrease the chance of prolapse and incontinence after childbirth.

An Initial Assessment with a Physiotherapist is required before starting classes.

 

Wednesday 10:30am – 11:30am (Currently run with our Postnatal Class)
