Exercise + Pregnancy
There is strong research evidence to suggest that supervised pelvic floor exercises during pregnancy can prevent urinary leakage after birth.
Many of our pregnant clients come to us for advice and guidance about how to stay fit and healthy during pregnancy and help prepare for the demands of labour and looking after a baby. We offer pre and post natal pelvic floor assessments and individualised exercise programs.
Many of our client’s benefit from and love participating in our semi-private clinical pilates classes, where we individually design and tailor your exercise program specifically to address the many physical changes that occur during pregnancy. Each program is designed with individual goals at the forefront.
