Introduction to the Bump Room

Classes are designed from the current evidence and recommendations for exercise in pregnancy and postnatal and are continuously adding to their content in keeping with current guidelines.

Who are the Bump Room?
The Bump Room was developed by Ailish, Caitriona and Fiona and began in 2008 when Ailish started teaching pregnancy fitness classes independently. She wanted to merge her physiotherapy training with exercise and movement. The need for dynamic and challenging exercise in pregnancy became apparent and Ailish began creating classes that are a fusion of many different forms of exercise. This includes aerobics, flexibility, strengthening and Pilates.
Caitriona joined Ailish in 2013 when they developed the Bump Room brand to support women with Pelvic Girdle Pain. Ailish and Caitriona’s vision to reach more women led to the creation of a team of physiotherapists to grow and support each other. They developed a training and mentoring programme for physiotherapists. The first online classes were launched in 2016.
Fiona joined in 2018 when the postnatal programme was developed to help women return to full strength. The Bump Room vision to reach and support more women lead to the development of the Bump Room online community in March 2022.
