Exercises for early post natal mums


For all newer mum’s wanting to ‘get my body back’ remember 6 weeks after giving birth really is not a long time for your body to have recovered.  It has endured 9 months of carrying your baby so your pelvis and alignment generally would have changed & then the whole trauma it has to go through when giving birth – whether by C section or a virginal birth.

I know you all just want to feel ‘normal’ again but if you can just appreciate what your body has been through then you may realise it is more important to release some of the tightness you have in your back or bum rather than put your trainers on and get out for a run!  From 6 weeks to about 12 weeks you should be trying to  reconnect with the sensations within your body, accepting you may have more a slightly swollen tummy from perhaps the inflammation still mending inside you.

The Holistic Core Restore® Course I run is a 6 or 12 week course for all women who are over 6 weeks post natal who have particularly weak deep abs, diastasis  (3 finger gap) and a weak pelvic floor. It is a unique class, totally focusing on your deep core, your glutes and important hip stabilising muscles.

Still not sure which fitness class is for you?

Are you a woman who has pelvic girdle pain? Do you have pelvic floor issues? Have you had a C-section, episiotomy or tears? Do you have a Diastasis Recti or weak deep abdominals? Are you peri – menopausal? Do you want to get fit in a safe environment? I can help, get in touch to find out more.
