Pre / Post-Natal Exercise
Exercising during this exciting time in your life is important to keep fit and to stay strong for childbirth. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to exercising in the pre / post-natal period, therefore having an individual and supervised program can be a perfect for you. At 18 Physio, we offer small group and 1:1 sessions. This can be performed in person, or in the comfort of your own home online. Please contact us to find out more.
If you are confident with your exercise program and would like to continue exercising alone, that’s great. However, consider a session to get exercise advice and a pelvic floor muscle screen so that you are as educated as possible. This can help to minimise your risk of developing any symptoms during the pre / post-natal period. Contact us to find out more.

Using the principles of Pilates
Pilates is a mind-body approach to exercise and is a holistic way to keep strong, prevent injury or rehabilitate following an injury. Pilates focuses on the core and whole-body strengthening, with a focus on correct breath work. This makes it a great tool for exercise based functional pelvic floor muscle training, in addition to the musculoskeletal benefits you gain from it. Due to the flexibility of this exercise type, you can gradually build load and functionality by modifying your spring load or position of exercise.
