Our Ante natal and Post natal care, provided by our physiotherapist, will include safe manual therapy techniques, education on back saving techniques and Clinical Pilates. Clinical Pilates during the ante-natal period will aim to maintain strength and joint mobility while the body accommodates to the changes occuring during pregnancy. During the post-natal phase we will aim to enhance core stability and strength.
