How it works
Enjoy three personalised one-to-one appointments with our trained women’s health specialists at critical points in your pregnancy and postpartum journey. You’ll learn how to prepare your body for birth, manage changes that occur, and recover with confidence. Trust us, we’ve got you and your blossoming belly covered!
Birth Prep 1
After your big morphology scan (usually between 18-20 weeks), you’ll attend your first Birth Prep session to learn about your body and how to prepare your body for the best birth possible.
Here we will:
- Complete a full pelvic floor assessment
- Assess your risk for perineal tears
- Review your pushing technique
Birth Prep 2
As your due date approaches, we’ll check in on your body and put any final Birth Prep pieces in place. Our goal is that you leave feeling confident and prepared for the arrival of your little one. Your partner is welcome to attend this session.
Here we will:
- Teach you perineal massage techniques
- Practise active labour positions
- Prep for early postpartum recovery
- Fit you for medical compression wear to aid recovery (if you choose).
Postpartum Check Up
You just created a whole new human being (what a rockstar!). We’ll assess changes in your body, offer direction to support your recovery, and create a plan to have you feeling your best.
Here we will:
- Complete a pelvic floor assessment
- Assess abdominal separation
- Create your return to exercise plan
You’ll also get the following bonuses
Those first few weeks after birth can be a real doozy. You’re tired, confused, and in total awe of the tiny human you created. This 15-minute phone (or Zoom) call with a trained physio is a chance to share your birth story and navigate any symptoms before your 6-week postpartum appointment.
Total investment FROM $495

Frequently asked questions
We love the work of midwives, doulas, and doctors, but no other practitioner will do a hands-on pelvic floor assessment during pregnancy (yet these muscles are vital to birth!). This empowering assessment offers you deeply personal insights to benefit your unique body through pregnancy, labour, recovery and beyond.
Because everyone has unique goals and preferences, our reformer Pilates classes are not included in our Bumps & Beyond program. However, in our first Birth Prep session, we will discuss Pilates with you and let you know how to join our Pregnancy Pilates classes safely. Learn more here.
If you’ve had a baby, are a Pilates pro, or work with a physio already, you may be able to shimmy right into our Pregnancy Pilates classes. However, you’ll need to book a short Pregnancy Pilates Assessment with a physio to make sure you’re safe to do so. This is a requirement for all pregnant mamas. Learn more & book here.
Women’s health is our speciality. Our team are highly trained and compassionate professionals (most of us are also Mother’s). We’ve seen it all before and will make the process as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Learn more about what to expect at a pelvic floor exam here.
As trained physios we are pros at managing the full range of musculoskeletal conditions. At your first Birth Prep appointment we’ll discuss your medical history and build a custom wellness plan that prioritises you and bubs’ health. Trust us, we’ve got you and that bump covered!
If you’ve found us after 25 weeks, we can still work with you to get you birth ready. You will still complete two Birth Prep sessions (there’s a lot of great information to get through), we’ll just adjust the timeline to suit.
Yes, your baby is welcome to join you. Bring their favourite toys, a playmat, bouncer, pram or car capsule. Many babies will sleep through the whole thing, but if not, our team can cuddle bubs or take them for a stroll while we do the physical part of the assessment.
Yes, you can pay in three instalments fortnightly from the time of booking. Simply choose the payment plan option at checkout.
I felt so much more confident going into birth knowing my body and feeling prepared to make decisions that were right for me.
