Postnatal Classes & Services

Congratulations on the arrival of your baby, we hope you are both safe and well. After giving birth, in all its various potential forms, your body will feel unlike you have ever experienced before. For all that took place during labour there is a lovely phrase that we think is useful in this time, you can’t change what happened, but you can change how you feel about it. Looking after yourself, while you pour your energy into looking after your baby is important and it is vital, to you both, that you remember to answer your needs too.

We offer a wide range of classes and sessions for this time, that are suitable for you and your baby.

Gentle exercise activity can be recommenced six weeks after a vaginal birth, and twelve weeks after C-section. Don’t feel you must be in rush, your body needs to heal before it strengthens and with all the new activity you are doing looking after the baby you will have plenty of opportunity to ‘work muscles’. Do feel that you are welcome at any time for advice.

All our current activities are listed below.

PILATES FOR MUMS

 Postnatal Pilates is designed to address the specific results of child birth and regain the core stability that will enhance your early months with your child.
Classes will focus on areas affected during pregnancy such as abdominal muscles, pelvic floor, joints and prevention of back pain.
These classes will hold a maximum of nine participants and will be led by Lucy, one of our most experienced teachers ensuring you have the most up to date and individual approach in getting your body back on track.
Please ensure you follow medical guidance when returning back to exercise. We suggest waiting a minimum of six weeks post pregnancy in normal circumstances and a minimum of 12 weeks following a C-Section.

BABY A WAKE COURSES

Jane Wake of Baby-A-Wake runs these Mum and Baby Pilates and post natal courses. Bring baby along with you while you strengthen your body after birth and get ready to progress onto more strenuous classes such as the Pilates flow class. Get baby into bed and come along for a mums only class for those who are continuing to grow stronger having already completed the Post Natal Pilates course.

For more information on either of these classes, please contact www.Baby-A-Wake.co.uk

The Complete Baby A-Wake Ante and Postnatal Programme is now available on DVD at Boots and Mothercare nationwide.

 

WOMEN'S HEALTH PHYSIOTHERAPY

We offer specialist physiotherapy services in women’s health and in all things related to pregnancy and birth. In addition our Women’s health specialist phyaio, Lisa Few is a certified Pilates teacher and can provide you with 1:1 instruction in Pilates for post natal care. Lisa is covered by all the major insurance companies and sessions with her are held privately. Our recommendation is that if you are experiencing discomfort, that feels unusually painful and allows for the fact that you have a growing baby inside you, seeing a specialist sooner rather than later can help to resolve the issue and free you up to feel more comfortable and to enjoy your pregnancy more.

BABY MASSAGE

5 week courses run on Tuesdays in our beautiful studio. Taught by Melissa Smith who trained as a baby massage teacher after enjoying it so much with her own baby. Contact Melissa directly for information and booking on 07595835424 or email beautiquebaby@gmail.com

CRANIO-SACRAL THERAPY

Cranio-Sacral Therapy (CST) is a very gentle and non-invasive treatment. The treatment consists of a very light gently contact on different areas of the body and allows gentle re-balancing and re-organisation of the body. Baby and/or mother remains fully clothed during this treatment. It is very powerful in releasing stress and strains in the body. Stress and strains may be held in the body as a result of physical and/or emotional trauma and releasing these through CST allows for a more integrated, balanced and healthier body and mind.

CRANIO-SACRAL THERAPY FOR BABY

CST can be effective in addressing birth trauma that may result from a difficult birth. Birth trauma can manifest in many ways. The most common are listed below: – Plagiocephaly (Flat Head Syndrome) – Colic – Reflux – Crying, restless baby – Difficulty sleeping – Problems with digestion – Feeding / latching problems – Neck tightness (Torticollis) – Glue ear

CRANIO-SACRAL THERAPY FOR MOTHER

CST can be effective in helping resolve the physical stresses and strains that the body has gone through and can help mothers deal with the stress and anxiety associated with this. Cranio Sacral therapy can help with a number of conditions associated with pregnancy and birth; the most common ones are listed below.

  • Post natal depression
  • Shock, stress and anxiety
  • Back pain
  • Pelvic floor imbalance and incontinence
  • Pelvic malalignment
  • Muscular stains
  • Aching joints

For more information on Cranio Sacral Therapy and to find out if you or your baby will benefit from this treatment please call us on 020 8672 4455.

BREASTFEEDING COUNSELLING WITH HELEN GRAY

Helen Gray is a breastfeeding counsellor. Specialising in breast feeding since she experienced her own troubles with her (now teenage) children, Helen is extraordinarily well qualified and knowledgeable in the field.

Helen is available for 1:1 sessions, and given the value from the sessions, the time Helen spends with mothers and the low cost of the sessions we think they are incredibly affordable. Previous clients say:

“Your help gave me the confidence in my own ability to be able to feed my baby” — Annabel “Your patience and calm approach was exactly what I needed, back when I was struggling to establish breastfeeding after a difficult birth. My baby is now 6 months old and we are still happily breastfeeding. Just wanted to thank you for your help at the beginning — I am sure I wouldn’t be breastfeeding now if it weren’t for you” — Amy

To book a session with Helen please contact our reception team on 020 8672 4455 and they will put you in touch.
