Postnatal Recovery

postnatalSo you’ve just had a baby and want to feel strong and healthy again? You’ve come to the right place!

Many women find that they face specific physical challenges in the early days of motherhood. Having just created a whole new person and brought them into the world you may be recovering from:

  • Abdominal separation
  • Caesarean recovery
  • Incontinence
  • Poor posture from either breast or bottle feeding
  • Tired muscles from holding and rocking your baby
  • Sacroiliac joint movement and pain
  • Pubic Symphysis pain
  • Low energy levels
  • Low self-esteem and poor body image

Here at Pilates With Purpose we would love to help you achieve your health goals and support you to get back to the true you.We’ll do this by setting a personalised program that will:

  • Strengthen your core and pelvic floor muscles
  • Stretch those tight spots
  • Enhance flexibility
  • Increase your body awareness
  • Improve posture
  • Incorporate these techniques into everyday life so that you feel stronger every day and help prevent future injury

We understand that as a busy mum, time is at a premium and have developed a program accordingly. As well as group classes we offer the convenience and personalisation of home visits at an affordable price.

  • Doing this saves you:
  • Time
  • The hassle of travelling
  • The cost of child minding
  • Cost of a gym membership
  • And there is no need to feel self-conscious in a class with a group of strangers

I started private sessions with Pilates With Purpose after having my son. I was struggling with my core strength and finding it hard on my back always having to hold and feed him. The instructors were amazing and really helped me build up my overall strength. I used to do Pilates at the gym and never really achieved much, however I’ve noticed a huge difference with the private and now small group classes that Pilates With Purpose has to offer. I am so pleased with my body transformation as well as strength improvement. Thank you for offering such amazing Pilates classes. – Melissa M

Our instructors take pride in seeing our clients rediscover the strength and vitality they need to function at their best and can’t wait to help you take the next step to get back to the true you.  

Amanda created Pilates With Purpose with you in mind.
During the birth of my first baby and the recovery period I encountered challenges I had never experienced before – both physically and emotionally. I was very lucky that I had support to get to a pilates class twice a week to help me recover from my emergency caesarean. Many of the mums in my mother’s group were quite envious of this and wished that they had similar support. So I turned my passion for pilates classes and my desire to help other women into a business. I created Pilates With Purpose to help new mums to recover from birth without having to worry about gym memberships, babysitters or feeling self-conscious in public. –

We have had a fantastic experience with Pilates teaching in our home. During my pregnancy my husband developed a very painful back problem and after the arrival of our son, his difficulties in carrying and sitting down with him as well as bending over for nappy changes etc inspired him to make some changes. I was also interested in post birth recovery and so after looking around at nearby pilates studios and class timetables, to find schedules for both of us, juggling babycare during evenings and weekends we discovered Pilates With Purpose via a mum’s Facebook group recommendation. Our excellent teachers were able to tailor classes to meet our different needs and we have found the flexibility to schedule a class (or massage!) during the evenings at home when our baby is (hopefully) asleep has worked really well. We also save time as there’s no travel involved and doing our classes together has been great fun and a very cost effective way to benefit from high quality tailored Pilates teaching. Thanks!
