Post Natal “Check Up” – Pelvic Floor and Abdominal Muscle 45 minute session

Pregnancy Aqua classes are designed for pregnancy (from 12 weeks to full term) with specific exercises to strengthen the core, help relieve back pain and pelvic pain and improve aerobic fitness.
We give you a health questionnaire prior to entering the poor regarding any medical conditions or problems you are having during your pregnancy. Class sizes are small and your physiotherapist will monitor your progress, and change exercises that may not be suitable for you.
The classes are held at an indoor, heated pool at The Retreat, Hoylake Ave, Stirling (adjacent to the Stirling Golf club entrance).
Classes are on a Thursday evening at 7:00pm. Class size is limited so please ring us to book in and for more information to be emailed to you.
Bring a towel, bathers or shorts/t shirt/rashy and water bottle to drink while in the pool.
Cost $28.00 (Heath fund rebates apply for Physiotherapy Group Exercise) We ask you to pay via eftpos at the pool, and a receipt will be issued that allows you to claim a rebate if you have health insurance.
