Pregnancy Exercise Class

Pregnancy Exercise Class in Katong, Singapore

Congratulations on the upcoming arrival of your little one!

As you prepare to embrace the beautiful journey of motherhood, we recognise that women should be exercising in pregnancy to help improve birth outcomes not only for mum’s to be but babies too.

Our Physiotherapist- led specialised group exercise classes are designed to nurture your body, mind, and spirit as you prepare to welcome your little one. With a small group size (no more than 5) and emphasis on matwork style pilates exercises and strength training, you can be guaranteed that you’ll walk away being more connected to your core and pelvic floor.

Class FAQs

To ensure classes cater to YOUR body and are working towards YOUR goals it is a prerequisite that interested clients undergo an initial assessment with one of our Physiotherapists prior to commencing classes. This assessment includes going through relevant medical and/or injury history, vaginal exam or a real time ultrasound scan of your core and pelvic floor (it’s how we can help you activate correctly), assessment of your movement patterns and any problem areas, goal setting and tailored exercise advice.

If you have any questions regarding this initial consultation, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via email or by calling the clinic on 9780 7274.

At the moment, all attendees must directly contact the clinic via whatsapp or email to express interest or book into classes. If you are new to embrace, please book in for an exercise class initial assessment first.

After your account has been established you may book your class attendance online via the make an appointment button.

You may choose to book as many weeks in advance as per the pack purchased or you can book as you go (please be aware some classes fill up so it is advisable to book your spot in advance).

You must prepay for the classes via PAYNOW UEN: 201901836M (Embrace Physiotherapy) or you may come by the clinic and pay via MasterCard or Visa.

Unused credits are not refundable.

If you have purchased a pack during pregnancy then go on to have your baby, you are able to carry the classes over for use after the birth of your baby. We can put it on hold for you until you are ready to resume.

All classes are pelvic floor safe, however our postnatal classes start from 6 weeks postnatal and after you’ve undergone your physiotherapy postnatal assessment.

Whilst exercise has been proven to be beneficial to both mum and bub during uncomplicated pregnancies, there are some women who should not. You can read our blog here to learn more if this applies to you. This will also be determined during your initial assessment.

Nobody likes getting ready for a zoom meeting, only for it to be rescheduled last minute…. A 24-hours cancellation policy applies. The cost equivalent to the session will be forfeited if you do not give 24 hours’ notice. If you can’t make it, please do let us know as early as possible so that we can offer it to clients on the waitlist or reschedule you to another session in the same week.

A water bottle, towel and grip socks (can be purchased at the clinic- check out the funky styles on offer).

Our classes are run by a Physiotherapist. Please check with your insurance provider as these classes may be covered under your physiotherapy allocation.

We are happy to work with you to set up a class especially for your group at a time that suits. Class size will need to be capped at 4 and all attendees must attend an initial assessment at the clinic prior to commencing. Email us at help@embracephysio.sg for more info!

Unfortunately, you are still required to attend an initial assessment with Embrace so we can make sure that you get the most out of the class.

Was recommended by a friend to embrace physiotherapy, I was having bad recurring blocked ducts/mastitis and was desperate. I’m served by a very welcoming and friendly counter lady (forgot to get her name) and my therapists Preet and Brenda are very professional and helpful, they helped get my stubborn blocked ducts cleared in 3 sessions. Preet also referred me to someone who helped with the recurring mastitis. Will probably still experience the same problem if I haven’t visit them, super thankful for the help!

I had a great experience with Embrace physiotherapy both throughout my pregnancy and post partum. I attended group exercise classes with Brenda until I gave birth and it helped me stretch, ease 3rd trimester pains and maintain energy flow. After I gave birth, the physiotherapy sessions with Alex and exercise classes with Brenda helped me get back to a more comfortable physical state. I appreciated being able to do both in parallel. Lovely receptionist and great team who always welcome you warmly - highly recommend!

I saw Preet for a few months with my concerns. She is highly knowledgeable in her field and has incredible bedside manner. Her guidance through my journey has been gentle and she addressed my concerns with a very holistic approach. Every consultation has given me great insight about my issues and I felt heard every step of the way. The clinic also feels warm, cozy and welcoming and makes me look forward to my appointments. Reception is always very friendly and it's a breeze to schedule appointments. Communication has always been easy and fast. Highly recommend Preet and her team!
