Antenatal Pilates

PREGNANCY PILATES

Come join us if you are wanting to start Pilates before your new arrival. Our classes are suitable for mums to be in their first, second and third trimesters.

We will guide you through an hour of pilates mathwork focusing on your deep abdominals and pelvic floor muscles which will help support your low back as your baby grows. We will also work on your upper body posture and control and arm strength. This will prepare you for lifting your baby and to adopt good posture when feeding your baby. Pilates is great for increasing and maintaining general fitness when pregnant.

Our classes are safe, effective, fun and relaxing.

During the class we use various Pilates equipment such as balls, resistance bands and pilates magic circles.

You will need to have clearance from your doctor or midwife before starting the class. If you have never been to Pilates before we like you to have had your first scan.

Before starting the class everyone will receive a FREE* one to one Pilates technique session where we will also check for diastasis recti, pelvic asymmetry and to teach you how to correctly engage your core. This ensures you will exercise safely and effectively in the class.

For further information or to book your space and a FREE* one to one technique session please call the clinic on 01702 613542.

*Conditions apply* 


Many new mums often struggle for time to get to a Pilates class after their baby has arrived.

Post Natal Pilates is perfect for those wanting to get back into shape after the birth of their baby. This class is a total body workout to promote core stability, strength, flexibility and posture.

We will get you that long, lean strong body whilst making sure your pelvic floor muscles are functioning properly post labour.

We do recommend you are at least 6 weeks post labour before you start this class to make sure you are healed after natural birth or Caesarean section.

If you are new to Pilates you will need a 30 minute 1:1 Pilates technique session which is a FREE session!

Call the clinic now on 01702 613542 to book your space.

 

What One New Mummy Had To Say About

Our Post Natal Pilates

“I’d had Pelvic Girdle Pain quite badly pre and post pregnancy which is how I arrived at post natal pilates at WDC Physiotherapy.

After 4 months of coming along to the weekly sessions and a little effort, my core is stronger than it was pre-pregnancy. The classes have helped massively with pain. I am much more stable in my core and pelvis and I am also on my way back to gaining my pre-pregnancy body back.

Whilst I’ve never been the type of person who’s comfortable going to the gym, I’ve found something I really enjoy doing in Pilates and Wendy is absolutely fantastic.

I thoroughly enjoy getting something out of coming to class.”
