Feeling connected and supported is integral to thriving in pregnancy and motherhood. This is why we created The Bump Room live zoom classes, an accessible and time-saving space for women to connect and support each other. We (Ailish, Caitriona and Fiona) are here for you. Being present in real time to listen, reassure and motivate through our live weekly classes and live events where you can ask questions and connect.

It is safe to exercise with twin pregnancies but it is more challenging on the body. Therefore, we recommend women join early and to consider our Finding relief classes as the pregnancy progresses. We are here to support and guide you particularly with twin pregnancies, so regular communication is encouraged.
*If you are not suitable to attend when pregnant with twins due to medical reasons, we would highly encourage you to join the Bump Room Community for your postnatal rehabilitation.
Exercise in pregnancy is proven to be beneficial for both mum and baby; however there are some medical conditions where exercise has to be undertaken with caution. Please click on this link detailing these conditions.
On the health screening form we will ask you to confirm that you have communicated to your GP and/or Obstetrician that you are attending the classes (this one off screening form is requested prior to accessing the video library’s to get to know you better and offer you support as required)
Yes, please come. We have specifically designed our Finding Relief class for women who are suffering with PGP symptoms and wish to stay moving in a supported way. The Finding Relief class is for moderate to severe symptoms.
The Stay Strong class is suitable for mild symptoms and modifications for some of the exercises can be given in the Live classes.
The majority of PGP symptoms will resolve postnatally, however if you are still experiencing symptoms the postnatal exercise classes are the ideal way to safely build your strength and fitness.
Yes 100%. We are recognised as a medical service and all of the providers are CORU registered. This meets the main criteria for health insurance claims.
Our experience is there is a wide variation between health insurance providers in what they require on the receipts. Therefore, in the membership area there are downloadable receipt templates and you can complete these.
We have created The Bump Room Community to fit into your busy lifestyle. We know mums find it difficult to get time to workout so the pre-recorded videos are of different durations from 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on the time you have available.
Our live pregnancy classes are 45 minutes and our live postnatal classes 45 minutes duration.
The Bump Room Community is great for anyone who has ever been pregnant and it is never too late to work on your core and pelvic floor muscles. You can still reap the benefits of the exercises even many years after birth.
If you have a large diastasis, of greater than 5 fingers, you are better attending a local chartered physiotherapist who specialises in women’s health who can guide you at your own pace.
For mild to moderate diastasis The Bump Room Community is perfect for you. You will need to pay attention to certain modifications that may need to be made to some exercises. Watch the videos specifically made for diastasis to guide you on your breathing and body position.
Yes. The Bump Room Community is designed to cater for all women after giving birth. With prolapse, however, the classes are best done in conjunction with a local chartered physiotherapist who specialises in women’s health who can assess your pelvic floor function.
Yes, yes yes. The postnatal programme and classes have been specifically designed to help you recover from childbirth. There is a huge focus on exercises that encourage improved pelvic floor muscle function.
We run live Zoom classes every week with the exception of school holidays i.e midterms, Christmas and Easter breaks (classes will run during the Summer). During these break weeks you will continue to have access to all the pre-recorded exercise content.
The live classes are delivered by the experienced physiotherapy creators.
Currently the live classes are scheduled for the following days and times:
Monday evening Pregnancy Stay Strong Pregnancy 7-7.45pm
Thursday morning Pregnancy Finding Relief 10-10.45am
Wednesday evening Pregnancy Stay Strong 7.30-8.15pm
Wednesday 9.15 – 10am Postnatal Phase 2
You will have access to class recordings for 1 week and unlimited access to the pre-recorded exercise classes library.
It is safe to exercise all the way through your pregnancy, including the first trimester. It really helps with the nausea and fatigue.
However the first trimester is associated with the highest risk of miscarriage. For this reason our preference is to accept women from the second trimester onward, when the risk is substantially reduced. Also, a specific pregnancy exercise programme is not usually required in first trimester.
You can cancel anytime during the 7-day trial and you will not be billed. To cancel is simple, you go into your account and click on cancel subscription. If you enjoy the 7 days and would like to stay on, whatever subscription you have opted for will commence automatically at the end of the trial.
