New Mums

After six weeks (or 10 if you had a caesarean section) you can get back to some gentle exercise. It is best to avoid anything like sit ups, planks or anything that creates intra-abdominal pressure which will not help a gap in the tummy or a weak pelvic floor. 

Strengthening your body, without pushing too hard.

Settling into being a new mum takes time, and it’s important to allow yourself to focus on your baby and adjusting to your new role. Don’t push yourself before you’re ready and definitely don’t worry about getting back into shape just yet. Get out and walk but avoid any running or high intensity exercise and listen to your body. It has been through trauma and it takes longer than you think for the birth canal and tummy to mend.

After six weeks (or 10 if you had a caesarean section) you can get back to some gentle exercise. It is best to avoid anything like sit ups, planks or anything that creates intra-abdominal pressure which will not help a gap in the tummy or a weak pelvic floor.   It is best to get your abs checked and if you have any pelvic floor issues after seven weeks then ask to see a women’s health physio.

I offer the Holistic Core Restore(R) Everywoman on 1:1 – it is the same as the group course but you get the full 1:1 support. You will get the kit, access to homework portal, the full education and nutrition advice and have access to the private Facebook page.  It is initially a 6 week course.

I also offer a 1:1 Holistic Core Restore(R) Diastasis programme – an individual programme depending on your needs. You will also get the kit, nutritional advice and the private Facebook page support.

I also offer 1:1 personal training as a one-off assessment and posture check.

As well as one-to-one personal training sessions I run a number of classes for new mums, some of which allow you to bring your baby along so you don’t even have to worry about childcare.

"I started focusing on my pelvic floor muscles during my daily activities, such as when picking up my toddler etc. I feel more tone around my waist but I know it’s only the beginning and I have to keep practicing. I started eating more proteins and reduced my coffee. Generally I feel better about myself knowing that I am doing something positive and eating well."

"I would highly recommend this course to anyone postnatal. I don't think women take postnatal & pelvic floor issues seriously enough and we should have more awareness around repairing our bodies and properly strengthening our pelvic floor and core. This course gave me the tools to learn to do this safely."

I can't think of anything as I found it perfect much for what I needed. Homework was easily accessible on my phone which was very important as I don’t have time to put my laptop on with two small children.
