FAQs

Why practice Mums & Bubs yoga?

Mums & Bubs Yoga classes are tailored to the specific needs of women after having a baby.  

We focus on:

  1. regaining core strength and stability by targeting the abdominal muscles, obliques and back muscles

  2. opening and releasing through the upper body to relieve back, neck and shoulder pain

  3. regaining strength in the pelvic floor to maintain bladder and bowel functioning

  4. managing the stress and psychological challenges of motherhood with breathing and relaxation techniques

  5. building more confidence in your ability to handle difficult & confronting situations

  6. connecting with other mums & bubs in a nurturing environment

When can I start?

The general recommendation is to wait 6 weeks after the birth of your baby before starting Mums & Bubs Yoga. Your body needs that time to recover and heal after giving birth.

If you have had a vaginal delivery and wish to start exercising sooner, please speak to your GP or health care provider to asses if it is safe for you to do so.

If your baby was born via caesarean, then it is advisable to wait the recommended 8 weeks and then get clearance from your obstetrician before commencing classes.

What does my baby do in class?

Your baby is free to do as little or as much as they like in class. There is no expectation for your baby to behave in a certain way during the class and if you need to feed or change your baby during the class, you are more than welcome to do so. 

You can leave your baby in their pram or capsule if that's where they are happy. Alternatively, your baby may prefer to be next to you throughout class. In which case, they can lie on a blanket next to your yoga mat. Many of the postures offer alternatives that allow you to hold your baby while doing the postures. There are many options so that you can find what works for you and your baby.

What should I bring?

For mum: comfortable clothing and a water bottle
For bub: baby capsule, a blanket to lie on, toys
