Did you know, 36% of women over 45 suffer incontinence after childbirth, which is preventable!? Look after your pelvic floor now!
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.
Prenatal Assessment and Classes
Postnatal ‘Mum’s & Bubs’ Class
Our Clinical Exercise classes with evidence-based exercises are designed specifically to strengthen the pelvic floor, abdominal and surrounding muscles that are often weakened during pregnancy and child birth. Classes are designed for Mums from 6 weeks postpartum (6 week clearance from your GP) and up until your baby starts crawling.
An Initial Assessment with a Physiotherapist is required before starting classes. This allows the Physiotherapist to gain knowledge about your pregnancy and birth, prescribe specific exercises and help you reach your post baby goals!
Postnatal Assessment and Classes
Feel free to bring a rug /mat for baby and some toys. You can include baby in some exercises (we love the ‘kiss-ups’ exercise! Our variation of the push up). The class is great stimulation for baby and a chance for them to practise tummy time and rolling skills!
Currently a combined pre and postnatal class on Wednesdays 10:30 – 11:30am
Bring your mothers’ group and then go for coffee afterwards!
Assessment and classes are claimable from most Private Health Insurance Funds
