Pregnancy fitness classes

Local Mums recommend the best pregnancy fitness classes in our area


"I highly recommend Maternally Fit classes to Local Mums. Having struggled to find an exercise class for pregnant bodies I was so happy to discover Orla at Maternally Fit. Orla not only coaches us through a real keep fit regime but she also educated us on how to protect our changing bodies from lasting damage. It’s nice to be able to mingle also and share struggles (whether it’s nausea stories or struggles getting up from the sofa!) with the other mums-to-be. A great class.
Sarah Lomas, Local Mum

“I recommend Maternally Fit classes to Local Mums. Ante natal classes are all very well but sitting around talking about birth is a lot less useful, in my experience, than getting yourself physically ready for it. I really think doing Pilates and yoga during my second pregnancy helped make the birth a whole different and much better experience. There are never any guarantees of a smooth birth, but I definitely felt more comfortable with what active birth is all about after doing ante natal fitness classes, I knew how to move around and breathe to manage the pain naturally and it was quite chilled out, which is unbelievable after my horrible first labour. I wish Orla had been around teaching these when I was pregnant first time!”
Rachel Jayasingha, Local Mum 

"I highly recommend Maternally Fit classes to Local Mums. As a triathlete and usually very sporty person I was worried about how I'd cope doing less physical stuff during pregnancy, especially once I had to stop running. Maternally Fit was a total lifesaver - a twice weekly dose of high energy cardio and all round work out kept me sane and I'm positive it's aided my speedy recovery from the birth. For me Maternall Fit was the best thing ever!”
Louise, Local Mum

“I recommend Maternally Fit classes to Local Mums. My labour was not short as I had to be induced but I managed to escape with no stitches or tears and my post-natal recovery has been great - no pelvic floor issues at all!  The midwife has been very impressed and most importantly I can even do up my pre-baby jeans and I'm 100% sure that it is because of all the Maternally Fit classes.”  
Sarah, Local Mum

"I highly recommend Maternally Fit classes to Local Mums. I am really enjoying the classes so a big thank you to you and your team! It is great to be doing exercise that is specifically designed for pregnancy and I find it really reassuring that the classes are led by physios who really know what they are doing”
Anna, Local Mum

"I recommend Maternally Fit classes to Local Mums. I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for the wonderful Maternally Fit classes.  I was told by one of the midwives after my birth that I had amazingly strong pelvic floor muscles and I thought I should pass on that glowing feedback given your dedication to the pelvic floor cause.”
Jane, Local Mum


Maternally Fit
Maternally Fit conducts exercise classes for pregnant and post-natal women. All classes are conducted by a Physiotherapist, with specialist training in exercise for pregnancy and the post-natal (after birth) period.

Our classes are appropriate for both the novice and experienced exerciser, and each class will be individually tailored to your fitness needs and abilities. Classes are one hour in duration and consist of both cardio-vascular fitness and strength training.  Classes are based around the use of the exercise ball and hand weights. 

Classes have a particular focus on core stability and pelvic floor training – the muscles you need to support your growing baby and your changing body.

To enable Maternally Fit to give you the highest level of care, we take detailed information about many aspects of your pregnancy, and continue to monitor you throughout your time with us.

To enable you to get the most out of our program, we expect members to attend at least one class per week. Classes are pre-booked and pre-paid.

Our ultimate goal is for you to have a happy, healthy pregnancy, physically preparing you for one of the greatest challenges of your life - motherhood.
