The ANTE-NATAL Package
Will help support and strengthen your body during pregnancy and prepare it for the demands of motherhood. We offer an initial assessment in the clinic to assess your muscle strength and posture so that we can start you on a tailored exercise programme.
It will focus on prevention of pelvic and lower back pain, pelvic floor strengthening, stretching and correct breathing techniques. If you have any discomfort or concerns, we suggest that you talk to your GP first. You can also join our pregnancy Pilates classes which are suitable to attend from 14 weeks to labour day!
We also offer perineal massage (birth canal widening) from 34 weeks (make an appointment to see Mariola). There is more information on this on the HSE website – https://www2.hse.ie/wellbeing/child-health/preparing-your-body-for-labour-and-birth.html
Please contact us if you wish to book an ante-natal package.
The POST-NATAL Package
Will help restore your tummy muscles and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles after the birth. It is specifically designed for you to start after your six week check-up (whether you had a vaginal delivery or a caesarean section).
Mariola can check your pelvic floor strength and that your technique is correct. She will also check your tummy muscles for a diastasis recti.
You can then join our post-natal Pilates classes.
