Hi, and welcome to the FITMUMS PHYSIO. My name is Amy Laurie and I am a physiotherapist who specialises in Women’s Health, in particular pre and postnatal health and wellness.
I am also clinically trained in Pilates and a mum to two gorgeous daughters Hannah and Chloe.
At the FITMUMS PHYSIO we run small group classes - both circuit training and Clinical Pilates - where we work with women to teach them how to strengthen the muscles around their pelvis, back and abdominal region to support their bodies during pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Becoming a mother is very physically demanding and so at the FITMUMS PHYSIO our goal is to help women develop the knowledge and strength to function confidently in this new time in their lives.
Take the first step today toward feeling healthy, strong, and confident during and after your pregnancy...JOIN OUR FITMUMS PHYSIO COMMUNITY!
Here's why all our mums love The FITMUMS PHYSIO
All our exercise and rehab FITMUMS services are run by me, a Women's Health Physiotherapist, and expert in prenatal and postnatal fitness and rehabilitation. I have many years of experiencing, graduating as a physiotherapist in 2009.
Learn how to prepare or recover from your pregnancy, and return to exercise safely post-birth. 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 your motherhood journey.
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.
At The FITMUMS PHYSIO we will educate you and show you exactly what to do to keep yourself and your baby safe, strong, and healthy throughout every trimester of your 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.
At The FITMUMS PHYSIO we ensure that you are doing all that you need in order to recover from your pregnancy and delivery and that you make a safe return to exercise.
At The FITMUMS PHYSIO we offer two types of classes for Pre and Postnatal Women.
Our FITMUMS Circuit Classes include a combination of modified strength training, core rehabilitation and cardiovascular fitness and are designed specifically with the pregnant woman and new mother in mind.
Babies and Toddlers are welcome at these classes!
I am a Women's Health Physiotherapist with expert knowledge in prenatal and postnatal fitness and rehabilitation 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 assisting a women’s body in its recovery after the birth.
Our Pregnancy AND Postnatal Pilates programs are designed by Physiotherapists and endorsed by Obstetricians with you and your baby in mind.
Our Physiotherapist Amy will guide you through your 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.
The Clinical Pilates classes are intimate with a maximum of 4 people and each woman has their own individualized program.
Babies are welcome at these classes!
