There is saying that it takes a village to raise a child and I totally agree with this sentiment. In our society there isn’t anywhere near enough focus, attention or education to help mums recover from pregnancy and birth safely and then they are thrown into motherhood with not enough help or support. It is our goal to offer support during the postnatal days and beyond. I strongly believe that no mum should be suffering in silence with issues such as pelvic organ prolapse, a dysfunctional pelvic floor or diastasis recti. These might be common postnatal conditions but they are not normal and are not to be accepted or ignored. The symptoms associated with them such as urinary or urge incontinence, a mummy tummy or back or pelvic pain can with the right help be rehabilitated. We are passionate about postnatal wellbeing and believe in doing everything we can to help mums create a village of support and network of friends and experts to support them through this amazing but incredibly challenging time.
Even beyond the postnatal period mums need looking after and their postnatal wellbeing remains important. Modern mums are phenomenal multitaskers. They run households, care for children and more often than not have their own careers, businesses or active roles in the community too. When life gets busy, it’s mum’s self-care that gets sacrificed. We have created a safe space for mums to come and move their bodies, realign themselves both physically and mentally and be amongst other mums in a caring and nurturing environment.
Growing a baby, delivering a baby and caring for babies and children is challenging for the female body both physically and mentally. You might be feeling like your body is a bit broken after the ordeal of pregnancy and childbirth. Let us help you kickstart your postnatal recovery and healing process by relieving that postnatal tension with relaxing, deep and effective postnatal massage.

Angela is an amazing Pilates instructor, so knowledgeable about the stresses and strains on the postpartum body. The postnatal Pilates class was really good, an opportunity to concentrate on recovering from childbirth and some self-care time (babies are welcome and having a nanny on hand is a great touch to enable mums to focus). I’m now doing the Mums that Move evening class and it’s one of the highlights of my week, it’s so relaxing and restorative, I notice a real difference when I haven’t been for couple of weeks!
I’m attending postnatal Pilates classes with Angela and it’s amazing! It’s really focusing on the right muscles and little issues we can have after the birth and I felt the result immediately after the first class. I’ve practised Pilates for few years before my pregnancy but that’s so far the best classes I’ve attended.
The postnatal classes were a brilliant way to get back into Pilates and exercise in general and think about how your body has changed, and what to do about it. So helpful (and surprisingly relaxing) to have the babies there too! Thank you.
