What is our Mums & Bubs Exercise Class?

Mums & Bubs is a mother and baby exercise class comprised of clinical Pilates exercises specifically designed for the postnatal months to help your body regain strength and tone in a safe and effective way. The emphasis is on strengthening the pelvic floor, deeper abdominals, gluteals and back as well as on opening and relaxing tensions in the shoulders, neck and upper back.

The Pilates exercises taught in this class are gentle and tailored to your own ability, allowing you to slowly progress the difficulty of the exercises as your body continues to recover after birth. High priority is given to the pelvic floor and deeper abdominal muscles to assist in the recovery of separation of the abdominals and to prevent against pelvis floor weakness symptoms such as incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

Mums & Bubs is unique in that classes include movements with your baby’s development in mind as well as your own. Attention is given to positioning your baby in such ways that it promotes head and core control, strength in the limbs and movement patterns to facilitate your baby’s postural development from lying to walking. Babies need to be given the opportunity to learn and connect with their bodies through movement, to strengthen their muscles and stimulate their nervous system in order to achieve those critical physical milestones over their first years.

Fully Qualified Instructors

Our Mums & Bubs exercise classes are supervised by our physiotherapists Sarah & Nicole who have undertaken additional study with the Australian Physiotherapy Pilates Institute into pre and postnatal exercises.

Our classes are kept to small numbers to ensure that every woman participating has constant supervision and feedback, and every exercise is monitored to match to the ability of each individual.

Booking Options

We have two booking options.
Flexible Booking
This option allows you to book your classes around your committments and allows for cancellations if you are unable to attend (subject to our 24hour cancellation policy). Payment is made on attendance of each class with private health rebates avaialble. This booking option gives you access to our loyalty program where your 11th class is free.
Block Booking
This option books you in for the entire month at a reduced fee per class. The full payment of all classes in the month must be paid upfront and will be held in credit on your account. If you are unable to attend one of the classes, then you will forfeit the amount previously paid for that class. We are unable to provide refunds or a make-up class for non-attendance. If we need to cancel the class for any reason (such as the physio being unwell) then the class will be credited for the following month. If you are wanting to claim with your private health insurance then you can either collect the receipt of the full payment at each class you attend and claim back online or you can swipe your private health fund card when attending and the gap payment will be made from the credit on your account. Credit left remaining at the end of the month can be used as part of the upfront payment for the following month or for other transactions with the clinic. Due to the reduced fee per class in the block booking option we are unable to provide the loyalty program where the 11th class is free.
