Progress safely through an active pregnancy and prepare for labour, birth and Motherhood. Keep yourself strong, mobile and pain free.
What's involved in the BUMP Programme?
The BUMP Programme is a totally unique programme of services to suit each individual pregnant woman.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Following completion of the pregnancy health screening form, and optional in-depth consultation and assessment, I will be in touch to recommend a suitable programme of services to take you through your active pregnancy to ensure you remain mobile, strong and pain free. The more information you provide in this screening process, the more specific my recommendations can be!
The length of the programme depends on how many weeks are left in your pregnancy and the cost depends on the services I recommend to suit your needs along with your own personal wants and budget.
Your unique BUMP programme could involve 1 group exercise class a week if that works for you, taking my BUMP options throughout the class. Alternatively, it could involve a couple of classes a week, a weekly 121 exercise and movement session, and a monthly pregnancy remedial massage, for example! Having a plan provides motivation, direction and focus!
Below is a list of the type of services you will benefit from on the BUMP Programme but a bespoke combination of services can be put together for you personally as each pregnancy is unique!
Assessment Consultation - An optional (but recommended) 1-2-1 consultation to discuss your specific needs. This will also include a conversation around your goals, previous exercise, current health status, posture assessment, pregnancy-related concerns or issues, and what services will most suit your requirements and budget.
