We started our Ante Natal Classes in 2007, when similar classes were virtually unheard of, and they have become increasing popular ever since. What makes our classes unique is that we combine in-depth knowledge of Pilates with Miriam’s specific expertise in Women’s Health Physiotherapy – we know which muscles to keep strong and which ones to keep lengthened! We don't just mention the pelvic floor but explain how to activate these muscles. The class shows you how to use the Swiss ball, both in exercise and in early labour. Miriam is also qualified to deliver ante natal education classes, so any questions you may have about pregnancy and delivery can usually be answered! Miriam has contributed online articles on exercise in pregnancy, and the effects of Caesarean section and multiple Caesarean sections. Our post natal class is about getting everything working again after your baby has been born. We do a quick assessment of the abdominal muscles when you begin. We encourage women to get the muscles working again before starting any high impact, or weight resistance exercise. We really feel from experience if you can get it right in the early post natal period it can save a lot of problems down the road. On occasion we may ask that women who have had multiple Caesarean sections to do a 1-to-1 session before attending for classes.
24 hours notice is required to cancel or re-schedule any physiotherapy appointment, rehabilitation session and mat class. However, in the event that you cannot attend a class which has already been purchased, it is possible to attend the missed class at a later date.
