Physio & Fitness offers Physiotherapist-led small group postnatal exercise sessions (both in the gym and in the water), which aim to improve your overall recovery post birth!
These sessions are suitable for ANYONE who has had a baby (8 weeks – 12 months). The classes will challenge you, build your fitness, strength, and tone you! We also cater for any one experiencing any issues such as pain, incontinence, prolapse, or abdominal muscle separation. You will need to have had your 6 week check-up from your GP/Obstetrician prior to your initial assessment.
GYM BASED FITNESS
* As these classes are run by a Physiotherapist, you may be eligible to private health rebates. You pay for the 6 week block upfront, an invoice will be provided at the end of the block, for the sessions you attended. You can then take this to your private health insurer.
This assessment will be booked in for 30 minutes. Your Physiotherapist will ask you all about your pregnancy and labour and identify if there are any risk factors or if you have any current issues with how your bladder, bowel and pelvic floor are functioning.
She will assess if you have any abdominal muscle separation and will assess your pelvic floor function. This can either be done using non-invasive real time ultrasound (probe placed on your lower tummy), or through a vaginal examination of your pelvic floor muscles (your Physiotherapist will discuss when we would recommend the vaginal examination).
Please note, this is a pre-screen to attend our exercise classes, and if you have some underlying issues that require more time – you may be asked to book in again with the Physiotherapist for further assessment and treatment.
Please contact our reception staff to book in for your “Postnatal Exercise Assessment” and your exercise sessions.
Our next 6 week land-based block commences on Monday 1st March. BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL.
Aqua can start at any time (after your initial assessment).
