Mums & Bubs Postnatal Recovery Classes

Returning to exercise following delivery of a baby can be overwhelming.


We see a lot of women who aren’t sure where to start and we are well equipped to help you reach your fitness goals in whatever way that looks like for you following delivery.

Our Mums & Bubs Classes are built for you both, no need to find care or fit in a class between naps and feeds. Just bring your new bub and get started.

Our classes focus on three core outcomes:

  1. Guided return to exercise

  2. Specific advice regarding postnatal recovery

  3. Individualised assessment and goals based on your pregnancy and postnatal journey


Our mums and bubs classes are a great way to commence your exercise journey. Prior to the class you have an in-depth assessment where we discuss your goals and work out a plan for you. It is a 1hr class run by a senior physiotherapist and it runs in a 6-week block. You are welcome to repeat if the 6 weeks isn’t enough!


The class has a maximum of 8 people in them and babies who are under 9 months are welcome to tag along! It’s a great way to meet other birth parents on top of the exercise benefits. During the hour we go through hot topics of what new parents encounter and what problems may arise and how to tackle them.


We can’t wait to help you along your exercise journey as a new parent and reach your goals.

Are you pregnant, have recently had a baby, or suffer from incontinence?

Don't suffer in silence!

1 in 2 people do not know how to do their pelvic floor exercises correctly, but Physiotherapy can help you!


It is common to experience pain or weakness while pregnant or after giving birth, which can sometimes lead to incontinence or result in delayed return to exercise or pre-pregnancy activities.


  • Pelvic floor dysfunction and incontinence is very common to experience while pregnant or after giving birth

  • It is NOT normal though - you shouldn't have to "just put up with it"

  • Only 55% of people perform pelvic floor exercises correctly. This increases to 76% with correct assessment and feedback.


Physiotherapy plays an important role in assessing your pelvic floor muscles using Real-Time Ultrasound technology. This is a non-invasive way to ensure your pelvic floor muscles are working the way they should and this can be used to implement a tailored, specific program to address your needs.


  • Includes a thorough assessment of your current problem/pain

  • Review of your current activity levels

  • Prescription of pregnancy-appropriate exercises (and advice on how to tailor any previous physical activity to your current needs)

  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment (using Real-Time Ultrasound)

  • Exercises for pelvic floor muscles

  • Supervised exercise classes

  • Recommendations and fitting of SRC Pregnancy compression garments and/or pregnancy belts


Physiotherapy is essential – and is most beneficial within the first six weeks after your birth.

  • Includes a thorough assessment of your current problem/pain – including identification of risk factors for pelvic floor issues

  • Review of your current activity levels

  • Advice and recommendations for safely returning to exercise

  • Assessment of abdominal muscle separation

  • Treatment for mastitis/breast engorgement

  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment and strengthening program (using Real-Time Ultrasound)

  • Tailored exercise prescription

  • SRC Recovery compression garments

  • Achieve your goals!

What if I suffer from incontinence, but I haven’t had a baby?

Physiotherapy helps! Incontinence can affect anyone – male or female, at any stage of life. Common causes of incontinence may include:

  • Surgery – including prostate surgeries, bowel or bladder cancers, hysterectomies

  • Menopause – due to changes in hormone levels which affect your pelvic floor muscles

  • Respiratory issues – including chronic cough

  • Not using your pelvic floor muscles regularly – this will cause the muscles to weaken

Don’t let incontinence stop you doing the things you love!
