Are you pregnant or recently had a baby?

Our Clinical Movement Therapy (CMT) programs incorporate specific clinical pilates exercises to address your whole body. CMT positively affect your whole body through the improvement of strength, mobility, posture and movement control.It can help to prevent common pregnancy complaints such as hip, pelvis and back pain and can assist the abdominal muscles to regain their original strength and function after birth. Our physiotherapists create a personalised program that is specific to your needs and it is regularly reviewed and adapted throughout your Pregnancy.

Getting started

For best results, it’s best to start Clinical Movement Therapy before you are pregnant, however, we can tailor a program for you no matter what stage you are at and you will soon feel the benefits. Before commencing Clinical Movement Therapy group sessions, you will need to have a one-hour private assessment. During this session, your physiotherapist will conduct a whole-body assessment and create a program for you, specific to your goals.

Benefits of Clinical Movement Therapy

In addition to the above benefits, you can also expect:

  • prevention of lower back & hip pain
  • improved balance, strength and posture
  • upper body strength (for all those late night feeds!)
  • strong muscles that you need to use for pregnancy, labour, and newborns
  • improved recovery time post-birth
  • pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscle strength

You can join any of our group classes (3-4 people) as all clients receive an individual program, alternatively private sessions can be arranged – and may be booked easily online.

It is a good idea to check with your GP before commencing any exercise program and we recommend you have an initial assessment with our Women’s Health Physiotherapist Amy Tinetti before starting to check your pelvic floor muscle activation and strength.

About six week’s following birth, if you would like to bring your newborn along with you, we also have a class just for ‘New Mums‘.

To get started, you must first have a one-one initial consultation with one of our Physiotherapists, to make an appointment, simply click here to book online or call (08) 6389 2947.
