Specialist Pregnancy and Postpartum Osteopath and Certified Pregnancy and Postpartum Coach
192-194 Clapham High Street (entrance on Venn St). SW4 7UD
After growing up in the ski town of Verbier, Switzerland, Aude moved to the UK to study Osteopathy. She graduated from the renowned British School of Osteopathy where she studied for 4 years and wrote a dissertation paper on the topic of female unexplained infertility. Aude then pursued her passion for sports and female reproductive health & pregnancy by co-founding the Pregnancy Programme at the Hub health clinic in SW London. The programme combines osteopathy, fitness training and nutrition for women before and during pregnancy as well as in the post-natal period.
Aude has undertaken various post-graduate training courses in acupuncture, visceral manipulation, pregnancy osteopathy and pregnancy & postpartum athleticism. She also became a Certified Pregnancy and Post-natal Coach and she continues to explore different areas of special interest such as optimal foetal positioning and scar tissue mobilisation.
Aude is fluent in English and French and currently practices at Hub in Clapham Common in a team that includes a Women's health specialist and pregnancy massage therapists.

As osteopaths we look at the body as a whole and help it find a state of balance with the ongoing changes that happen throughout the pregnancy, in order to make you feel as comfortable, healthy and happy as possible.
Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy can help with a broad range of presentations such as:
- lower back pain
- pelvic girdle pain
- pubic symphysis dysfunction
- rib pain
We also assist the body in preparing for birth and create as much space as possible for the foetus, encouraging it to find an optimal position ahead of labour. Osteopathy during pregnancy can be preventative or curative, so you don't have to wait until your symptoms develop to come and see us.
In the post-partum period, osteopathic treatment focuses on restoring good overall balance, a calm state and optimal movement in your body as it went through considerable changes in the past 9 months and during birth, and it might need a helping hand to return to a balanced and comfortable state as it recovers.
COST : Initial consultation £80 (1hr), follow up appointments £65 (40min).
Pregnancy and Post-partum Fitness Classes
PregnaFit classes at Hub Pregnancy have been designed to help you keep fit, healthy and strong during pregnancy and in preparation for childbirth and motherhood. They are a combination of mobility, cardiovascular, strength and core work, aiming at keeping your body strong and injury-free during pregnancy and in preparation for lifting/carrying/breastfeeding your baby, as well as in preparation for the post-partum recovery.
We keep our classes small, 6 people maximum in a class, so that we can keep an eye on everyone in the class and give them the necessary attention and adapt the exercises when needed. Our pregnancy and post-partum osteopaths and coaches will make sure that every exercise you do is beneficial to you and done safely.
Our classes are suitable for women at any stage of pregnancy, regardless of previous fitness levels. We recommend seeing a Women’s health specialist for a post-partum MOT (from 6 weeks after childbirth) before returning to the classes and ease back into exercise with our guidance. We provide onsite childcare for most of our classes so you can have an hour to look after yourself, without having to worry about organising childcare.
We make the classes energising and fun and create a welcoming environment where local mums and mums-to-be can meet like-minded people and build a great support network!
