ANTENATAL & POST-NATAL CLASSES

At Body & Birth Physiotherapy we offer in-person Antenatal and Postnatal classes.

Our classes are run at 85 Latrobe Terrace at the Unplugged Yoga Studio. It is a bright, ambient and baby friendly space with plenty of parking behind the studio. Located next to a coffee shop, enjoy a post class catch up with other mums and mums-to-be following the class.


Online classes are also a popular option for busy Mums in Brisbane. It can be challenging leaving home to get to/from a class with a newborn, so let us come to your living room online!

Exercise during pregnancy

  • RANZCOG (The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists) recommend 150-300 mins of low-moderate intensity physical activity per week for pregnant women.

  • Low-Moderate intensity physical activity includes exercise such as walking, yoga, pilates, swimming and resistance exercises.

  • Antenatal exercise helps reduce the risk of developing gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure).

  • Many women will experience nausea and vomiting in the early weeks/months of pregnancy and become quite deconditioned. Maintaining some form of regular physical activity will help you maintain your fitness and core muscle strength and reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal aches and pains commonly associated with baby cares.

Benefits of Post Natal Exercise 

  • Regular postnatal exercise will help you regain your pre-pregnancy strength and cardiovascular fitness. This is fundamental in helping you reach your postnatal exercise goals, whether that be returning to Reformer Pilates, Yoga, Swimming, Cycling, fitness classes at the Gym or Running.

  • Regular exercise has been shown to help decrease the risk of post-natal depression.

  • Exercise helps release endorphins- the "feel good hormone" our body naturally produces, elevating our mood and helping us manage tiredness that is so common in the postnatal period.

  • The increasing weight of your baby and repetitive nature of baby cares place a unique strain on your body, which, over time can lead to aches and pains. Our classes will target the strength and flexibility in the muscles you need to support you through these activities.​​

  • As there are a number of patients attending the class, the class is interactive and social and is a great way to meet new mums and make new friends.
