Antenatal Pregnancy Pilates

Ocean Wave’s Antenatal pregnancy program is performed on classical Pilates equipment, including the Pilates Reformer, chair, springboard and chair. 
Each individual client is mastering her own bespoke, customized Antenatal Pilates program, working in a very small group (1 teacher with 3 clients), so all mums-to-be are guaranteed lots of support, correction, and guidance.

Without any doubt, our Antenatal Pilates program is one of the best in the business. We’ve worked personally with Lynne Robinson (the world’s best-selling Pilates author and author of ‘Pregnancy and Pilates’) to create a fun, challenging and most importantly very safe workout for all expectant mums, regardless of experience.

We ask that all new Antenatal clients attend one initial, private one to one session before joining small group classes. 

This important initial session gives our instructor the opportunity to observe your range of motion, note any postural corrections necessary to perform the exercises safely, and to reinforce a very solid understanding of the Pillates method before moving into small group classes.  This initial private session give the new client a chance to speak freely about her pregnancy, any medical conditions that might impact her ability to exercise, and ‘have a go’ on the classical Pilates equipment before moving directly into a group class! Antenatal Sessions take place during our regularly scheduled Small Group Studio Equipment Classes… each of our clients work on his or her own bespoke, individualized program.  After you’ve attended your initial private session, you’ll be working on a custom-designed Antenatal program, so during group sessions, you won’t necessarily be doing the same exercises as anyone else in the room!  You are able to choose any session time, mornings or evenings, six days a week, from our timetable of Small Group Studio Equipment Sessions.  Check out the timetable on our Studio Equipment page:
The first step to getting started is to book your private, initial one to one session at a cost of £45.

How Ocean Wave Pilates helped me.

Antenatal and Postnatal Pilates at Ocean Wave Pilates in HoveMy son was born 14 weeks ago and throughout my pregnancy, I was eager to stay in shape. Thankfully, Paul and Jason created an individual studio equipment program suited exactly to my needs, keeping in mind my pre-existing injuries. I highly recommend Ocean Wave to anyone looking to stay strong during pregnancy and to regain their figure after childbirth. I’ve started attending Postnatal equipment sessions a relatively short time ago, and I already feel and see the results. Paul and Jason are so professional and lots of fun to work with, this makes a huge difference for me, because I need a few laughs to keep me motivated!

Having already been a faithful matwork client at Ocean Wave, on becoming pregnant I was very keen to continue exercising. Paul and Jason put together a tailor-made Antenatal Pilates program for me, which enabled me to take part once a week during small group Equipment Studio sessions.  Together, we worked on strengthening my entire body and I was expertly guided through gentle strengthening and stretching exercises. These sessions were not only enjoyable but also a great way of keeping fit in the final stages of my pregnancy… it really prepared me for impending motherhood!  For any mum to be, I would highly recommend Antenatal Pilates with Paul and Jason. Throughout every session at Ocean Wave, I was totally confident that the team understood both my capabilities and limitations.

Our son was born on Friday!  He was a little early, but a natural delivery, and we are both doing really well. I am sure my Antenatal Pilates classes at Ocean Wave helped a lot; the midwives at the hospital even commented on my ‘brilliant’ controlled breathing. I genuinely feel the pelvic floor work, breathing, and strengthening exercises have been invaluable. It helped me feel confident and strong during delivery and I’m now gently recovering- so a big ‘thank you’ to Jason and Paul at Ocean Wave! Katherine R. and Ethan, November 2013
