Pregnancy Exercise Class Aylesbury
Saturday morning from 10-10.30am, starting on Saturday 13th April 2019.
During pregnancy, our posture changes and the deep muscles that support our back, hips and pelvis get stretched and weak. This can lead to aches, pains and difficulty with everyday activities like walking and turning over in bed.
Learn how to safely and effectively exercise the correct muscles that support your back, hips and pelvis. By improving the strength and coordination of these key muscles you will feel stronger and more supported, and better able to cope with the demands placed on your beautiful body as your posture changes, your baby grows and you get heavier. It will also help to prepare you for the physical demands of labour and motherhood.
This new class is led by a Specialist Pregnancy, Postnatal and Women’s Health Physiotherapist and designed especially for pregnant mums.

Once you have reached the last few weeks of your pregnancy (35 weeks onwards) I am happy for you to pay as you go providing there is space in the class. Sessions will still need to be booked onto in advance and paid for upfront in the same way as outlined above.
Further class info.
All equipment is provided for these classes. There is a water fountain in the gym but you may wish to bring a bottle of water with you.
Please wear tight fitting leggings and a vest top (or similar) as I like to ensure I can see your tummy muscles working correctly.
Please let me know your due date or date of most recent delivery and any health conditions you may have (for example, pelvic girdle pain/gestational diabetics/heart or lung conditions/known problems with your cervix or placenta, tummy muscle separation or pelvic floor problems) so I can look after you as you deserve. I will ask you to complete a health screening form prior to starting the class.
