Antenatal classes

The ideal time to commence these programmes is after your 12 weeks scan. This will allow you to gain the most benefits. It is possible however to start the programme into your third trimester.

The FitBack and Bumps programme is a 4-session educational exercise programme designed specifically for pregnancy and the challenges it brings.

The programme focuses on understanding the changes your body goes through;

  • The importance of posture
  • Safe and effective exercises in pregnancy
  • Abdominal and pelvic floor muscle exercises
  • Learn how to physically prepare yourself for labour
  • Learn the invaluable skill of relaxation during labour.

Each antenatal session lasts for 1 hour and covers a short topic of discussion including the pelvic floor, safe exercise during pregnancy and physical preparation for labour, followed by gym ball and mat based exercises. You are also taught effective stretches to reduce joint and muscle stiffness.

This is more than just a prenatal exercise class. The exercises are designed specifically to support your changing body, with a special focus on your spine, abdomen and pelvic floor. Aiming to make you feel better, reduce back and pelvic pain during pregnancy and aid a quicker recovery after the birth of your baby.

We will supply you exercises cards and an information booklet so you can continue your exercises at home or at the gym.

  • Reduced pelvic and back pain
  • Reduced incidence of stress incontinence
  • Stronger core
  • Improved posture
