For Mommas

Congratulations on becoming a mum, you are so strong and inspiring and I am so proud of you! I am so happy that you have chosen to give yourself the time to focus on you and to reconnect to your body after an incredible change.

Below is my basic guideline to what I recommend is safe for you to do in the class and what to avoid, but keep in mind I am not a medical professional. Consult your physician or health care provider before starting or containing the Pilates Class program after pregnancy.



Please ensure you have had your six week postnatal check before starting the classes.
It’s always a good idea to consult with a woman’s health physiotherapist to check your pelvic floor muscle control
Don’t exhaust yourself, a light to moderate exercise program should be the aim.
Listen to your body and rest between sets. The strength and stamina will come back and it’s important that you’re not rushing your recovery. Don’t ever forget what your body has been through and what an incredible woman you are!! Love yourself and give yourself the time.
Keep working on your pelvic floor and transverse exercises, if it does not feel right keep your head down and avoid abdominal curling until you feel ready.
Avoid lunges if you suffer from symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD), a nice narrow squat is always a good option for you.
Stretch! However, remember to be kind to your body, it should always feel good, sometimes challenging but never painful.
Ongoing - ensure you are taking your time. Remember the incredible change your body has gone though. Be patient and kind - low impact exercises can have an incredible effect on the body and mind.
