The Key to the workshop is the online private members area which includes the following:

  • Knowledge: Relevant journals, clinical guidelines and book list all in the area of pregnancy and exercise.Websites and social media resources chosen and used regularly by The Bump Room team.
  • Exercises: All the exercises we use in The Bump Room (approx: 250!). This content is delivered in video format and subdivided into positions and props. Positions include: standing, at the wall, four point kneeling, high kneeling, side lying, long sitting etc. Props include gym ball, theraband and half dome. We also cover use of other small props and partner exercises.

VERY IMPORTANT! It is crucial that the workshop attendees familiarise themselves with the online content before the day of the workshop as there is too much content to cover in one day. Access to the private members area is for six months from initial registration.

The Bump Room classes are a safe place for mums-to-be to exercise with instructors who are compassionate, professional and connected.  We aim to reassure, encourage and motivate mums-to-be to stay fit, strong and confident to exercise during pregnancy. The classes are reasonably challenging to empower pregnant women about the positive health benefits of exercise in pregnancy.
