This appointment is with a physio. It is a chance for you to chat to her about your situation and learn more about Mums & Bubs Classes how can help you.
- Learn about your pelvic floor and what you can do get it stronger again
- Have your abdominal separation assessed and how you can reduce yours
- Have the chance to ask your physio about any pain, injuries, or niggles that are bothering you and if there is anything you can do to help
It is okay if you’re new to exercise and feel unfit, or if you have had an active pregnancy and just want some guidance.
We have helped many mums return to fitness, and taught them some tricks and exercises to help with all things from feeding posture, pram height and caring for themselves with their new baby.

FAQ's about the Mums & Bubs Class
It’s very common to experience urinary incontinence after giving birth and with the right exercises, this can be significantly reduced. During your post natal appointment, your physio will give you some basic info and exercises to help this. In some cases, your physiotherapist may recommend you see a women’s health specialist.
Nope! If you’re keen for some solo time, then go for it 😉
Some exercises, we may ask you hold your baby. This allows the physio to teach you correct technique when holding your baby which you can then use at home. However, not all exercises will involve holding your baby.
A mumma’s got to do what a mumma’s got to do 😝 If your baby is unsettled, you can do what you like to settle them. If bubs doesn’t want to be put down, we can give you exercises you can do while holding them.
For some babies, class time may coincide with their usual sleep time, and that’s okay. Bring along your pram for baby to sleep beside you.
