Bump to Babe – Pregnancy Fitness & Pilates Classes
Come along and exercise at any stage of your pregnancy and give your unborn baby the BEST start in life.
“Fitter mums, have fitter babies!” as the saying goes, so why not make the decision to stay active, reduce those pregnancy aches and pains and have some social time with other expectant women, just like you!
At Bump to Babe, you’ll find specialist Pregnancy Exercise and Antenatal Pilates classes for women at any stage of pregnancy. When you choose to start your Bump to Babe journey, is entirely up to you. Some women start in their first trimster, others in their second and their third trimester.
Classes are run by Claire Mockridge, an Ante/Postnatal Fitness Expert who’s worked with over 800 pregnant and postnatal women (and their babies!), and she believes pregnant women should make the decision to exercise when they’re ready.
Claire’s passionate about educating and empowering women about the changes that occur to their bodies during pregnancy, and firmly believes that clients who choose to exercise with her, are able to withstand the physical demands of labour, because their bodies are more physically and mentally prepared.
Exercising throughout your pregnancy can help you:
- Maintain your fitness level
- Control your weight
- Relieve stress and anxiety
- Improve your posture
- Have fewer symptoms of constipation, varicose veins and fatigue
- Have a faster postnatal recovery
- Improve your confidence
- Prepare for birth – strong muscles and a fit heart can ease labour and delivery
If you maintain your fitness level, keep your muscles strong and stay active, your cardiovascular system will thank you. It’s not called labour for a reason now then, is it?
Don’t worry if you haven’t done a lot of structured exercise up to now – your experienced Instructor, Claire Mockridge, pitches your class with varying levels and fitness levels in mind, so there’s exercises to suit and challenge everyone, and you’re never out of your comfort zone.
