AquaBellies is a hydrotherapy class for expectant and
new mothers combining Pilates with cardio exercise in
the buoyancy of water.

Class sizes are limited and are conducted by a Qualified Pilates Instructor who is also a Registered Midwife. Our classes are held in a private pool at the Repat Hospital, with no other activities scheduled at the same time. The 55 minute classes focus not only on pregnancy and preparation for birth, but also on postnatal recovery.
