MUMS AND BUBS GYM SESSIONS

Mums and Bubs

At The Injury Clinic we know that being a mum presents some very real challenges when it comes to exercise. Not only are there significant physical changes that have happened to your body, but you also have to try and find the time to exercise! As every woman, pregnancy and birth is different, we can expect each woman to have a different post partum experience too. 

With this in mind, we have decided to facilitate a Mums and Bubs gym session each Tuesday and Thursday. Since having her twins, our physiotherapist Liz recognises the physical, mental and emotional challenges that come with strength and fitness in the post partum period; and as a Physio, she recognises post partum women need expert guidance to ensure a successful return to strength and fitness. We also know that it is hard to schedule time to get into the gym, so have opened up these sessions for Mums to bring their babies along to! 

We aim to provide:

 

  • A safe, socially distant environment.
  • A place for open discussion about:
    • Return to exercise,
    • Pelvic floor concerns,
    • Abdominal separation,
  • And anything else (physio-related) you have questions about.
  • Plenty of room to bring yourself, your baby and anything else you may need.
  • No expectations, we know you are tired and have a lot on! 
  • We will start with some exercises that are targeted and individualised for the stage of pregnancy or postpartum that you are at. 

WHEN?

Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 10am

 

Babies and small children are welcome to these sessions, however, they will remain your responsibility while you complete your program.

 

HOW?

We ask that you have an appointment with Liz, one of our Physios prior to coming into a session. In this appointment, Liz will be able to check your abdominal separation and develop a strength program for you. From there, Liz will be able to discuss with you the best way to progress your program depending on what your goals are. 

 

Each person working in the gym will have their own program to complete at their own pace. We feel this works well as it means if you need to stop and tend to your child you are able to pick up at the same spot rather than missing out on part of a class. 

 

If you have any questions that aren’t answered below, please call our reception (03) 5229 3911 or email info@theinjuryclinic.com.au for more information. 

 

COST?

$15 for casual sessions or free for Gym Members.

FAQ’s

How many people will be at the session?

  • We will keep group numbers to a maximum of 10 (excluding children). 

Can I bring my baby/children?

  • Yes, of course children are welcome to come! It will be an informal session so there is no need to worry if your child cries, needs to be fed or changed! We do ask that we keep these sessions for children under 18months of age, but let us know if your child is older and we can try to accommodate your needs too.

Do I need to book? 

  • Yes, you can call the clinic (5229 3911) to book into one of these sessions. If you haven’t been to the clinic before, it will be suggested you have an appointment with a physio or strength and conditioning coach so we can develop a program for you. 

Do I need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19?

  • Yes, to keep in line with the current regulations, everyone using the gym space needs to be fully vaccinated unless they have an exemption. We will ask for your vaccination status the first time you come in.

Where will it be held?

  • We will hold the session in the gym at The Injury Clinic. This means there will be plenty of space for everyone and everything else that comes with having a baby!

Can I book out a session for my friends and I?

  • Of course! If you would like a general program, please email our physio Liz (liz@theinjuryclinic.com.au) and she will be able to help you out.  

Does it matter what sort of birth I had and how long post partum I am?

  • Definitely not! While it may affect the exercises you complete early in your post partum journey, a program will be developed specifically for you and progressed as appropriate.
