Sometimes it can be really hard to find the time to exercise and stay fit and healthy when you have little ones to take care of. That’s why we LOVE a good Womens or Mums & Bubs class. Whether it’s Women’s fitness classes, mums and bubs yoga, running groups or stroller exercise groups we’ve got some of Adelaide’s best options below.
Navigating the world of fitness pre and post pregnancy is hard and overwhelming especially when you are feeling tired and possibly have a few other kids in tow.
Plenty of places offer pre or postnatal yoga or Pilates but if you’re a mum who doesn’t mind a sweat session, wants to throw some weight around or loves a good deadlift, the options are limited. Strength Social offers BELLA.
BELLA is unique in the way that it’s run. Small groups of no more than 6 people, where you can bring the kids and/or the babies, and safely learn how to exercise at the intensity that you desire. BELLA will cover all the fundamental big moves, lifts and jumps whilst educating you how to rehabilitate post birth or prevent pregnancy related dysfunction. It’s also a great way to have a bit of a tune up in between pregnancy’s.
Let’s get real for a second. Prolapse, leakage, diastasis and all other pregnancy related symptoms are common, doesn’t mean that they are normal or that you can’t exercise safely and without a pad. Our BELLA trainer is qualified and experienced to guide you through more high intensity exercises and work towards strategies to help you be the most confident self in the gym. It’s also a safe place to ask all the questions you want and get a deeper understanding of your symptoms. The aim of BELLA is to work with you towards a higher intensity of exercise having you feel STRONGER and more CONFIDENT than you did pre kiddies.
45min classes running three days a week. 10:30am Tuesday/Wednesday and Thursday.

Growing a human takes a huge toll on the body, and while some women sail through pregnancy quite comfortably, we’ve all heard (or experienced!) the many, many aches and pains that can appear.
Then what about AFTER baby has arrived? There can be a very, very long road to recovery ahead…
Aspire Physiotherapy, located in beautiful Glenelg, offer a range of Physiotherapy services to help mummas to navigate the pregnancy and post-partum period. Physiotherapy treatment, advice and Pregnancy-specific exercise classes can ease pelvic pain, back pain, headaches, calf cramps and the many more ‘wonderful’ symptoms that can appear during pregnancy.
For the post-partum period, they offer 1:1 appointments to treat new-mum aches, assess abdominal separation and pelvic floor function, and plan out how to safely return to pre-pregnancy running, netball or gym classes. They also have Mums & Bubs Mat classes available 5 days a week, which are perfect from 6 weeks post-partum, until your baby’s first birthday. This gentle but specific class re-builds the foundations of core strength, helping to take safe steps towards your pre-pregnancy exercise routine.

Led by Professor Sarah Blunden, the Paediatric Sleep and Psychology Clinic was established out of an obvious need for specialist paediatric sleep services for diagnosing and treating families with children and adolescents who are experiencing sleep problems. Some sleep problems only last for a while and may be related to something in the child’s life [going to school, divorce in the family, teething etc], but others stay around for months and sometime years. Chronic sleep problems can have long term effects on children’s physical and psychological health.
Sleep problems in children (and adults!) can be largely divided into medical sleep problems (such as sleep apnea, sleep related epilepsy) or behavioural/psychological (such as difficulties getting to sleep or staying asleep, reluctance to go to bed or sleep related anxiety). These latter problems are the type of problem treated by the psychologists at the Paediatric Sleep and Psychology Clinic. The Psychologists use attachment based approaches, advocating for responsive and gentle approaches to improving sleep.
