Introducing The Bump Room to Killarney

Published

L

Led by chartered physiotherapist Ailish Mangan, this is a pregnancy class with a difference. It’s a mix of Pilates, yoga, aerobics, strength and conditioning and is tailored to the specific exercise needs of pregnant women, to challenge and support the client as their bodies change.

The Bump Room already run classes in Cork, Limerick, Galway, Clare, Dublin and Tipperary, and have proven to be extremely popular. There is generally a waiting list for the classes with many women returning on their subsequent pregnancies they enjoy it so much.

There are many common issues experienced in pregnancy, for example fatigue, swelling of the extremities and pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain. Research supports exercise in pregnancy: it can help with all these issues and more, it allows women to manage better in labour and even provides benefits into the postnatal period. Despite the evidence, women often feel anxious and uncertain about exercise in pregnancy. Having the support and advice of a chartered physiotherapist, with specialised training for exercise in pregnancy, allows women to exercise confidently and safely.

There will be an opportunity at the end of the class for women to ask questions, and Ailish will be adding in some practical information and tips, for example managing pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain and tips for labour. The classes aim to empower women, to keep fit, have fun and socialise. It's a great way for new mums-to-be to connect. Ailish decided to bring The Bump Room to Killarney as she would have loved it during her own pregnancies had it been available locally.

Ailish has 15 years experience working in the acute and primary care sectors, as well as some work in private practice. She currently works with the HSE, in primary care, working with all age groups from young children to older adults. She is a mother of three young boys under the age of six. Ailish is passionate about enjoying an active and positive pregnancy, labour and birth. She is delighted to be bringing this exciting class to Killarney.

Classes start on Tuesday, April 10 in Killarney Sports and Leisure Centre, with limited spaces available. For further information see thebumproom.ie and The Bump Room on Facebook.

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
