How has your body changed after pregnancy and birth?
I'm finding the post natal pilates class much better than others I've tried for focusing on the right things to repair the damage of giving birth in a gentle but constructive way, wish I'd known about you pre-natally!
I've enjoyed the post natal course so much, thank you. I think you should be cloned and prescribed on the NHS for all new mums.
I've been working with new mums for over 15 years, one of the most common issues I come across is that women don't know how their bodies have changed during pregnancy and birth and what they need to do before they attempt to return to regular exercise. Fortunately I have lots of tools to help. Left unchecked, many women endure years of back pain, pelvic pain, injuries when they try to run, issues with pelvic floor and distended abdomen. With some basic advice, this can all be made so much better.
An easy place to start for many is a basic, 4 part pelvic floor/squat sequence. It'll start to build that strength back up again safely. Or for something more structured, I offer a 6 week post natal Pilates and fitness course.
