PRE & POST NATAL
Historically, the days of laying on the couch for nine months during pregnancy are gone, thank goodness because that is no fun for anyone!! Inactivity has been proven to pose a much greater risk for mother and baby’s health. It is widely known and recommended in modern day studies to show that pre-natal and post-natal exercise is very beneficial.
I will work with you safely and effectively, throughout your pregnancy and beyond, to benefit both you and your baby.
During your pregnancy your body will be constantly changing and adapting, the training you will undertake will depend on how fit you are before pregnancy, your lifestyle and medical history. I will be on hand to guide you through every stage to ensure you exercise safely and are eating in an optimal way for you and baby, whilst maximising the benefits such as:
Reducing muscular discomfort/back pain.
Reducing excessive weight gain.
An easier, shorter labour.
Quicker post-natal recovery.
The addition of a new baby is a difficult time for anyone and takes a lot of getting used to, also during this time you will have seen dramatic physical changes to your body, maybe some weight gain, feeling tired and generally out of shape. Most new mums are very eager to return to exercise and your return has a great many benefits during this time, it can speed up your recovery and even improve on your shape from before.
Please remember that before starting on any physical regime you must be 6 weeks post-delivery and have the all clear from your GP/Midwife.
I will train you to ensure that I create effective programmes and correctly address your unique physical needs every step of the way. As a new mum I want to make this period of your life even more enjoyable by:
Improving stamina and energy.
Increasing local muscular endurance.
Increasing weight loss.
Reducing stress and anxiety.
Keeping you motivated.
