Prenatal Pilates

Wednesday 9:30am – 10:30am

 

A fit pregnancy is a great pregnancy ! Maintaining your fitness through regular gentle 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 Pilates at the beginning of your pregnancy will help build strength in the pelvic floor, core and surrounding muscles will set you up for better pelvic floor health post natal.

 

At Higher Function, we offer;

  • Classes run by highly experienced Physiotherapists
  • Small Classes
  • Informative tips and tools to use in everyday life to make your pregnancy more comfortable
  • Exercises specifically designed for pregnancy and preparing your body for childbirth – targeting your pelvic floor to decrease the chance of prolapse and incontinence after childbirth

 

A Pre-Class Physiotherapy Assessment is required before commencing class. This allows the Physiotherapist to gain knowledge about your pregnancy so far and take note of any issues that clients may have.

*Pre-Class Assessment and Classes are claimable on your Private Health Fund.
