Pilates Fitness For the Prenatal / Postpartum Mommy

We understand that moms are busy from day to day. With work and family responsibilities, it can be challenging to find the time to nurture yourself.

All at home sessions are scheduled on Fridays. Please call to make an at home appointment.

Prenatal Fitness: We offer gentle exercise options for moms who are restricted to the bed (or the couch). YES! There are movements that can be performed sitting and laying down that are beneficial to the expectant mother. * In most cases, safe and mild movement is encouraged and can even help with labor and delivery.

Postpartum Fitness: With our 4th Trimester Rehabilitation Program, you DO NOT have to wait the 6-8 weeks to start to significantly rejuvenate & reactivate your body’s muscles. *With an uncomplicated vaginal delivery, you can begin within hours of giving birth. All of the exercises provided are mild yet effective. For those women who have had a cesarean section or who have other physical considerations, exercises will address diastisis and/or C-section scars through original Belly Pilates rehabilitative techniques. Most movements can be practiced without ever leaving your bed or couch.

Remember, the sooner you start the sooner
your body will respond with toner, stronger muscles.

Postpartum Doula Services

For a new family, the immediate postpartum time can be exciting and joyous, but also overwhelming. Extended family, friends and well-wishers may be plentiful in the first week or two after the birth, but soon things settle down and the demands and routines of life begin to resurface. Many partners don’t have the luxury of taking extended time off from their jobs to support the mother as she makes the transition to her new role as caregiver. Those first days and weeks going it alone with her newborn can be overwhelming and exhausting, particularly if the mother has had abdominal surgery. For the mother who already has children at home, meeting everyone’s needs as well as the baby’s can be a real challenge. In these types of situations, postpartum support services can be the short-term solution that helps everyone make a smooth transition to life with baby.

Belly offers postpartum services that include:
  • Newborn Care Support
  • Sibling Care
  • Meal Preparation
  • Light Housework and Local Errands and Shopping
  • Infant Massage Techniques
  • Emotional & Moral Support
  • Access to Extensive Lending Library
  • Referrals to Resources and Professional Support as Requested

Arrive home and be greeted by one of the experienced Belly doulas. We will give you the personalized attention and support you need in the first weeks after labor and childbirth. Our kind and caring doulas will support you with the experience, knowledge and care you need to be the best mom you can be during those first precious weeks at home as a new family.

Hourly Rates: $25/hour (daytime)
