Pregnancy & Post-natal Exercise.
If you’ve been cleared to exercise, and you participated in physical activity before you were pregnant, it’s recommended that you do at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity on most, if not all days.
Exercise during pregnancy can:
- Provide relief of pregnancy related issues like lower back pain or pelvic girdle pain
- Improve postural awareness, muscle tone and flexibility
- Help you cope with the physical demands of pregnancy & labour
- Maintain fitness & healthy weight gain

How to Book
Before starting any of the classes mentioned above, you will need to attend a 1:1 Assessment with one of our Physiotherapists. This allows them to speak with you in more detail about your pregnancy, any issues you may be experiencing, your general health, and the basics of exercising during pregnancy or the post-natal period.
We also require a signed Medical Clearance from your GP, Midwife or Obstetrician before you commence pregnancy classes. We happily provide a simple template for your Doctor to complete on your behalf, and we also accept a signed letter or general Pregnancy Consent Form instead.
