Village Birth has the only group reformer pilates studio dedicated solely to pregnant women and new mothers in the region.

There are many physical changes that occur to a body during pregnancy and new motherhood, which is why exercises need to be modified for safety and individual needs. Knowing you are being guided with attention, care and someone with experience is important.

At Village Birth, our unique pregnancy and mum’s and bub’s reformer pilates classes are specifically designed to support pregnant women and new mums in both body and mind. Our beautiful studio is a safe, judgement-free and fun environment for mummas to move their bodies, breathe mindfully, stretch and strengthen – while meeting other mummas in the community as well.

We offer the only dedicated Mums & Bubs group reformer pilates classes in the region, with space for 8 mummas and their new babies to join our village, in every class. We are very proud to be able to offer this service to the Surf Coast and know you’ll feel the good vibes when you walk in the door! Show up as you are. Sleep-deprived, oily hair, ugg boots or crying baby — we will help you get moving. Mums need this for their own physical and mental health, and we really want to support that in our Surf Coast community. Come along, bring a friend and connect with our Motherhood Village!

“I started pilates with Village Birth when I was 4 months pregnant. It was a priority for me to stay fit throughout my pregnancy and I had heard that the reformer was amazing for functional movement and stability. Since taking two classes a week with Talia, my body and mind are now in a great place. Talia is a phenomenal teacher. She was able to modify the exercises for me when I started having pelvic issues later in my pregnancy and her warmth and kindness makes the studio a wonderful place to be. I’ve also met other amazing pregnant women there too! I can’t recommend her classes enough for staying well during pregnancy.”

How will Pilates help me?

We know that during pregnancy a person undergoes many big changes – physically, emotionally, hormonally and even spiritually for some. The spine changes shape as the baby grows bigger, hormones promote the pelvis to soften and open, ribs feel tight and constricted as the baby takes up more space inside, round ligaments holding the uterus in place may start pulling tightly on the abdomen, the lower back can feel a bit niggly and the pelvic floor has to work much harder with all the extra downwards pressure.

These physical changes may cause uncomfortable or painful symptoms in some people, so preparing your body for these changes in advance can make all the difference to your pregnancy and birth experience. Pilates is especially ideal for pregnancy because it works with deep foundational stability, strengthening and softening the pelvic floor muscles (it is important to be able to do both), body alignment so everything is in the right place, building strength in the areas that are needed for birth and early parenting, stretching all the tight areas safely with guidance and learning to breathe in different ways to work with your body.

The reformer bed is the perfect place to do pre and post natal pilates because you are supported, movement can be adjusted easily to improve form, specific muscle groups can be isolated, it can adapt to all resistance levels, exercises can be modified and it is safe for everybody.

Other benefits include:

  • Time out for mum (self-care)

  • Bonding time for mum & baby

  • Stronger body and mind for birth

  • Pelvic floor function and knowledge

  • Connection with other pregnant mummas

  • Relaxation
