Congratulations! You’re pregnant! The journey to motherhood is special, beautiful, and if we’re honest, could come with challenges too. We’re here to serve you during this time so that you can be in full control of your body and health.
Congratulations! You’re pregnant!
The journey to motherhood is special, beautiful, and if we’re realistic, it comes with its difficulties too! Think: changes to hormones, digestion, breathing, and posture coupled with possible nausea, aches and pains… It’s a lot, and we are here to help you understand it and take control of it.
Staying fit and mobile benefits you and your baby
Exercise might be one of those things you’re fearful about during this time. Everyone is telling you to slow down, listen to your body and take it easy. But what does this all mean and what should you really be doing?
Standard setting bodies recommend 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise per week for pregnant women which is the same as for the general population. If you’re having a normal pregnancy there is no need to be fearful of moving your body in any way that feels good for you.
teaching you how to move so you enjoy your pregnancy
Our pregnancy classes are designed to guide you through safe exercise during your pregnancy. When we say ’safe’ we are actually referring to YOU as the mother (because the baby is very well protected nestled in your uterus, and no exercise will harm the baba!). The way you move, including some exercise choices, could possibly put too much pressure on your core (which includes your pelvic floor) and can lead to injuries and issues in the post-natal period.
Focused on motherhood & prep for real life
Therefore these classes are designed to TEACH you how to move in a way that doesn’t do that and also in a functional way that prepares you for the movements you make in your everyday life and will make as you enter motherhood!
Let’s get you strong, mobile and ready for REAL LIFE!
embracing Your core is a skill for life
If you’re afraid to tense up your abdominal wall for fear of harming the baby, let’s dispel that myth and acknowledge that contracting your abdominal wall is ESSENTIAL for a healthy life and for giving birth! You will be constantly reminded to activate your core during the class!
This is also probably the first time you’re hearing about your pelvic floor… it’s time to take full control of your pelvic health and become aware of this precious area of your body! If you’re thinking “Oh yes, Kegels!”, no… it’s actually SO much more than that!
we show you how to adapt to your body’s changes
During your pregnancy there will be many shifts taking place in your body, some affecting your posture, and these changes aren’t only in your belly! You will be made aware of proper posture and be given tools to help release muscles that commonly become tight and strengthen muscles that commonly become weak – all of this helping you remain pain-free, through to the post-natal period.
Exercise is not the full picture when it comes to having a healthy pregnancy. Leave it to us to guide you with tips and hacks that will take you all the way to delivering your beautiful baby!
You may wonder what is the next step after birth? We have you mamas covered there too! Join our Early Days Mum class for a thorough post-natal recovery program where your baby is also welcome to join you.
Personal core education
Correct awareness and understanding of your core goes beyond training your abdominals. It gives you an intensive, thorough grasp on how a functioning and supportive core is vital to a woman’s well-being throughout all ages and stages in life. By equipping yourself with this knowledge, you will be able to enjoy all activities and age gracefully. This is a one time session.
