Hi, and welcome to my FITMUMs Program. My name is Amy Laurie and I am a physiotherapist that specialises in Women’s Health, in particular prenatal and postnatal health and wellness.
I am also clinically trained in Pilates and recently became a mum to my daughters Hannah in 2016 and Chloe in 2019.
I teach mums (including soon to be mums) how to strengthen the muscles around their pelvis, back and abdominals through a mix of Pilates and stability exercises to ensure they feel well during pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Take the first step today toward feeling as healthy, strong, and confident as possible during and after pregnancy
Here's why all our mums love the FitMums Program
Our exercise and rehab FitMums Program is run by me a Women's Health Physiotherapist that is an expert in prenatal and postnatal fitness and rehab and been a physiotherapist since 2009.
Learn how to prepare or recover from your pregnancy, and return to exercise safely post-baby. And best of all you can bring bub along too (if you wish).
You don't have to do this alone. Join our local community of amazing mums and mums-to-be and help support one another.
During pregnancy, your body goes through immense changes to accommodate for the life growing inside you. With the changing shape of your body and the added effects of pregnancy hormones, it is very common to experience aches and pains in pregnancy.
The FITMUMS Program will show you exactly what you need to do and know to keep yourself and your baby safe, strong, and healthy throughout every trimester of pregnancy. You'll never have to wonder if what you’re doing is safe.
There is often a lot of confusion around when to start exercising after the birth of your baby, as well as what type of exercise is okay and at what intensity.
The postnatal period, or approximately the year following delivery is a time where special consideration is required when commencing exercise. There are many situations and conditions that require exercise modification in the early weeks or months following delivery, as every woman will have had a different pregnancy and birthing experience.
The FITMUMS Program will teach you what you need to do and know to recover from pregnancy and delivery, and keep yourself safe, strong, and healthy as you return to exercise.
My Pre and Postnatal FITMUMs classes are designed specifically with the pregnant woman and new mother in mind.
I am a Women's Health Physiotherapist that is an expert in prenatal and postnatal fitness and rehab that is not a one-size-fits-all approach.
My classes allow women to stay fit and strong during their pregnancy and assist new mothers to regain their health and fitness following the birth of their baby.
Physiotherapy instructed Clinical Pilates focuses on core stability exercises, pregnancy pilates exercises, pelvic floor strengthening, stretching and mobility exercises to assist the body during pregnancy and labour as well as preparing a women’s body for after the birth.
Our Pregnancy Pilates programs are designed by Physiotherapists and endorsed by Obstetricians with you and your baby in mind.
Our Physiotherapist Amy will guide you through our pregnancy exercises slowly and thoroughly while also providing education on the reasoning behind each exercise to give you the confidence, strength and knowledge on all things related to your pregnancy and baby.
Developed by Amy LAURIE, a physiotherapist since 2009 that specilises in women's health. The FITMUMS Program is one of the most well-researched, comprehensive programs for women living in Melbourne, VICTORIA.
Hi, I'm Amy Laurie, owner of The FITMUMS Program, an expert in Women's Health and a specialised Physiotherapist with expert knowledge of therapeutic exercise methods for pregnancy and the postnatal mum.
I am a Mum to my two beautiful daughters Hannah (in 2016) & Chloe (in 2019) and have created my programs for women so they can achieve their goals and feel more comfortable in their bodies.
Imagine if you had a program that walked you step-by-step through exactly what to do to stay safe, healthy and strong throughout every trimester, and through your first year postpartum!
In your pregnancy, do you want the best for you and your baby?
As a new mum, do you want to ensure you recover correctly from your pregnancy and delivery?
Our Pre- and Postnatal Pilates classes are designed to support both the pregnant woman and the new mother.
Our classes include gentle postural strengthening, stretching and pelvic floor muscle training.
Getting back in shape is usually at the top of a new Mum's wish list.
However, time to exercise is hard to come by, and knowing which exercise is safe can be a concern. And you can bring your baby too.
Post-natal Mums and Bubs based classes are led by a physiotherapist specialised in pregnancy and postnatal care. Designed to safely help your body back to full strength after pregnancy and childbirth.
Now that you have your baby, your body may still not feel quite right.
Ongoing back and pelvic pain, upper back pain and pelvic floor issues such as incontinence and sensitivity are very common. Your body needs to time to recover not only from your labour but from being pregnant also.
