Pre & Post Natal Pilates
Safe + beneficial exercise pre and post natal.
Individualised and Informative 1:1 and 1:4 Exercise
We treat women throughout all stages of their pregnancy, assisting the mother-to-be with pain management, postural imbalances and education during their pregnancy, birth and beyond.
In conjunction with hands-on treatment, we offer Clinical Pilates to encourage optimal alignment throughout pregnancy and the postnatal period.
Your tailored program begins with an initial assessment and will continually be revised and progressed as you advance through your pregnancy and postnatal period.
Key Benefits of Pregnancy Pilates:
- Ensures adequate mobility + strength throughout your pregnancy
- Activates + improves endurance of pelvic floor muscles
- Improves posture + balance
- Aids in the relief of pain during pregnancy + postnatal period
- Provides ongoing support throughout your pregnancy + postnatal period
Physiological and postural changes start occurring to the mother’s body within the first few weeks of pregnancy. Therefore, we recommend booking an initial assessment as soon as you are able.
Following your delivery, it is usually recommended to wait until your six week Obstetrician check up for a return to physical activity (this includes commencing clinical Pilates), especially if recovering from a complicated delivery. However, if you are experiencing pain in the postnatal period, it is safe and encouraged to have a postnatal assessment and hands on treatment with one of our clinicians within the first month after delivery. This approach allows our Osteopaths and Physiotherapists to guide you on when it is safe for you to begin clinical Pilates.
There are many benefits to beginning Pilates pre-pregnancy including improved adaptability to postural changes occurring throughout pregnancy and a quicker postnatal recovery.
We understand that everyone’s pregnancy journey is different. For further information regarding clinical Pilates during pregnancy and the postnatal period, give us a call on 03 9421 3661.
