SixNatal Classes


Exercise during Pregnancy

We believe in empowering others and our SixNatal classes at Chelsea are designed to do just that.

Our aim is to give you confidence and enable you to feel comfortable exercising throughout your pregnancy, showing you what you can achieve.

Evidence shows exercise enhances a healthy, happy pregnancy and helps prepare you for birth: our specialist Women’s Health Physios are here to support you throughout. We will answer any exercise or musculoskeletal questions you have relating to your pregnancy and help you plan an exercise journey that’s right for you.

The class is a one off and is safe to begin as soon as you feel comfortable exercising in your pregnancy. You do not have to attend an antenatal class prior to this class, it is here to compliment them by showing you a safe exercise environment. We will tailor exercises to suit you and your needs throughout your pregnancy.

Once you’ve attended you are entitled to a 10% discount off our services (see below for details). You can even use this discount for your Postnatal body check at any of our Six Physio clinics.

After this class you’ll leave feeling knowledgeable, prepared and confident to exercise, making for a more comfortable pregnancy. Hear more from Women’s Health Physio, Becky Withycombe, who is one of our specialists running the classes here.

We cannot wait to meet you and support you along the way.
