Postnatal Assessment

We believe it’s important for all postpartum women to access a health assessment post birth. This assessment includes a comprehensive and sensitive review of your birth and risk factors for pelvic floor dysfunction, assessment of abdominal and pelvic floor muscles to guide your return to exercise and include general strength exercises to reduce the risk of back pain and stiffness with the demands of caring for a newborn/toddler.


Clinical class exercises

Pre & Post Natal Classes include Pilates informed exercise and are led by highly qualified physiotherapists with a focus on pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. The aim is to improve fitness and mobility in preparation for birth or get you back to all the things you loved doing before baby.
