Podiatry

Due to the natural weight gain during pregnancy a woman's centre of gravity is completely altered. This causes new weight-bearing stance and added pressure to the knees and feet.

Common foot problems during pregnancy:

  • Over-pronation (flattening of the arch)
  • Edema (swelling of the feet)
  • Heel pain
  • Arch and ball of the foot pain
  • Leg cramping
  • Varicose veins
  • Increase in foot size

Your podiatrist can assist with your foot health during pregnancy to make your nine months more comfortable. Treatment may include orthotics, bio mechanical analysis and advice.

Chiropody

As your baby grows you will find it increasingly difficult to bend over and therefore cut your toenails and keep your feet in the same condition.

Our chiropodist can assist you with the up keep of your feet throughout pregnancy.

The chiropodist can treat a variety of problems including calluses, corns, abnormal nail conditions, ingrown toenails, veruccae, warts and foot infections.

Pilates

This program was developed by the late Joseph H. Pilates who's goal it was to realise each person's physical capabilities and limitations while giving them exercises to correct their muscular imbalances and weakness.

Pilates is a great form of exercise for women before, during and after pregnancy. Pilates focuses on using and keeping the pelvic floor and deeper abdominals strong. These muscles are vital for pregnancy. It is not advisable to do Pilates between the 8th and 12th week of pregnancy but before and after this it is a safe and non-evasive form of exercise that will assist you during and after the birth of your child.

We offer specialized pregnancy course with a fully qualified Body Control Pilates instructor. Alternatively if you would like more individual attention you can attend a one-to-one session or two-to-one session if you have a friend.
