A very special time for mums, but also a time when she makes a lot of sacrifices with her body. Lots of women have babies and don’t check to see how their bodies are after birth which can lead to problems down the road. So We like to make sure that all our mums get the right focus both before giving birth and afterwards.
Your body undergoes many changes while you are pregnant and feeling good throughout is always a bonus. We have several pregnancy treatments and packages available to cater for you and your baby. Here are a couple of our popular treatments, but there are other options in our brochure to choose from too. Or if you fancy just giving us a brief we would be happy to help you!
Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage – to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it’s also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. Duration, 60mins €85, 90mins, €130
looking after yourself during pregnancy is every woman’s focus and desire. It’s not always easy when juggling your many roles in life – That’s why The Greenhouse has created some rituals based on our experience and feedback from our mums to be.

You will also learn a variety of breath techniques to help with labour and relaxation.

Pre/Post Natal Reformer Pilates (Currently not on offer as we are recruiting teachers)
Our mums and mums-to-be reformer Pilates class will look after your pregnant/post-pregnant body wonderfully, giving you strength, movement and relaxation. You don’t need any Pilates experience to attended this class as our instructor specialises in pre and post-natal training.
Mum and baby Yoga
Mum and baby yoga is a great way to bond with your baby while getting back in shape. Many of the yoga poses involve the core area which helps to tone these muscles and restore strength after pregnancy. We also focus a lot on relieving tension in areas such as the neck, shoulders and back as many new moms find feeding and lifting baby can lead to tiredness in these areas. In the class, we also practice breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. This helps to replenish lost energy.
It is suitable to start Mum and baby yoga after your postpartum check-up until your baby is actively crawling. Bring a toy and a blanket for baby.
Babies are involved in some of the yoga postures and beside mom on a blanket for others. They usually respond very well to the simple baby moves.
It’s a relaxed environment and all babies are welcome just as they are. It’s also a great way to meet other new moms in a sociable environment. It also fine if baby wants to sleep through the entire class. Feeding and changing during the class is common as is crying! However, many babies pick up on the relaxed energy in the class and become quite calm.
Mum and Baby yoga is suitable from 6 weeks post partum (once mums has been cleared by doctor to exercise) and from 12 weeks if you had a caesarean section.
