Gentle and Effective Postnatal Pilates for New Mothers


Focussed Postnatal Exercises

Postnatal pilates here at Graceville Physio is a fun and safe way to work out and support your body after pregnancy. We believe it is vital to remain active and regain strength.  

When you are pregnant, your body goes through many changes, so starting to exercise again under the guidance of an experienced pregnancy physio will ensure you get a personalised plan with the correct exercises for your body that you can do at our studio or home.

We will focus on strengthening your core and pelvic floor muscles to ensure your body is in its best condition to care for yourself and your bubs.

Post Cesarean Exercise

Women who have given birth via cesarean need different care than those who have given birth traditionally. Before getting back into exercise, we take into account several considerations when creating your personalised program to ensure they’re safe for you to complete. 

Post-pregnancy pilates can be a great option for new mums returning to exercise once they’ve had a baby. Unlike standard or reformer pilates, our clinical pilates exercises are great for strengthening the abdominal area without causing more damage to your body. 

Our personalised exercise plans ensure you’re performing the exercises right for you post cesarean. Once you’ve had an initial consultation with one of our women’s health physiotherapists, they will recommend the best course of action.

Post-Pregnancy Pilates Classes For Your Pelvic Floor

If you have been doing pregnancy pilates with us or elsewhere, you’ll understand the huge benefits the right exercises can provide for the pelvic floor area.

Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles after birth is crucial for bladder bowel control and preventing prolapse and incontinence. 

Our postnatal pilates classes specifically target these muscles with tailored exercises to build strength and promote healing after childbirth. 

With a big focus on improving pelvic floor strength and stability, your core strength will also improve, which aids in better posture and reduces the risk of back, knee and leg pain and a quicker recovery.

When Can I Exercise After Birth?

Under our guidance and provided all is going well, you can start post-pregnancy pilates and other exercises 6-8 weeks after giving birth.

We also recommend a post-natal review with us at or after 6 weeks to guide you on your return to exercise.

Regardless of your previous exercise history, pilates is a safe, strengthening exercise that can be done anytime before, during, or after your pregnancy. Pilates is widely recognised and approved as a very beneficial form of exercise postpartum.
