Pregnancy & Post Natal Classes

Find out more about our prenatal, postnatal and perinatal packages

Pilates Physio Style offers tailored pregnancy (prenatal) and after pregnancy (postnatal) classes. Our experienced team with post graduate qualifications in women's health have been providing the best evidence-based treatment and advice to women during their pregnancy and beyond since 2004. We offer one on one as well as small group prenatal and postnatal classes.

If problems arise our on-site women’s health physiotherapists are at hand to provide the best quality care. They can monitor and treat your condition and modify your exercise programme for the best possible outcome.

Scientific evidence supports the links between stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and back pain, furthermore if the pregnant woman experiences incontinence during their pregnancy they are more likely to be incontinent in the postnatal period. For a new or expectant mother this is important to address before it becomes a problem.

There is very strong evidence (Level 1; ICI 2017) that individualised and supervised pelvic floor muscle training delivered by a physiotherapist helps to prevent and reduce SUI and prevent prolapse down the track.

PPS classes are "pelvic floor" safe, individually tailored and progressive to help reduce the risk of these pregnancy and birth related conditions. We help you to both prepare for the birth, and after delivery assist your body to recover not just on the outside, but the inside too.

Classes are modified to suit each stage of an individual's pregnancy.

Pilates Physio Style is a provider of online courses on behalf of Fitness Australia addressing Optimal Exercise During Pregnancy and Optimal Exercise After Pregnancy.

FAQ

When can I attend a prenatal class?

If you have been doing physio classes prior to pregnancy and your medical provider has cleared you for exercise there is no reason to stop your physio classes when you find out you are pregnant. It is safe to continue your classes up until the time you give birth, but most pregnant women tend to stop around 36-38 weeks depending on how they feel.

When can I attend a postnatal class?

You can commence or return to classes once your medical practitioner, at the 6-week check, provided that you have medical clearance to do so.
