Pre & Post Natal Exercise

From Bump to Beyond

Whether you want to keep fit during your current pregnancy, or are wanting to get back into fitness following your birth, it is important to know the safe modifications and essential prehab/rehab exercises for each trimester and beyond.  While exercising has numerous benefits for both Mother and Baby, doing the wrong kind may cause long lasting problems. I have 2 well recognised qualifications in Pre & Post natal exercise, Pelvic Floor & Core specific qualifications, but most importantly hands on experience of exercising while pregnant. No matter what your looking to achieve, we can work together to find the best solution for you.

If you’ve had a baby, no matter how long ago and you have a Diastasis Recti or feel disconnected to your Core and/or Pelvic Floor then HCR Diastasis is the programme you’ve been waiting for.

  • Most women have never been told WHY this happens and what are the mechanics of Diastasis and why tradition abdominal work they performed before their pregnancy won’t work now in this healing phase.

  • Most women have never been told the HUGE role that optimal nutrition and hydration play in their this healing phase.

  • Most women have never been told about the link between the abdominal wall, Pelvic Floor, Diastasis and how they breathe!

  • Most women have never been provided with a BESPOKE (made just for them) restorative programme that takes them from the early days of healing right back to fully restored.

  • Most women have never been provided with a programme that gives them the tools to protect their healing core (Abdominals and Pelvic Floor) while they get on with the demands of life and motherhood.

For many women who experience slow, poor or painful healing, the appearance of and lack of ability to connect with their abdomen and Pelvic Floor post C-Section is a huge concern, so as a soft-tissue therapist, Post Natal fitness and wellness educator, the help of some very learned colleagues and as someone who has managed to make sense of the procedure and how finally, to recover well.  I created this Holistic programme for C-Section Recovery.

 

  • Do you feel disconnect to your tummy and Pelvic Floor since your C-Section?

  • Do you have a painful or uncomfortable C-Section scar that you want to free?

  • Does your scar hurt after any lifting or an exercise session?

  • Have you noticed a change in your bowel movements since your C-Section?

  • Are you a woman  who wants to know more about her Pelvic Floor, Core and overall health?

  • Have you experienced the odd leak when jumping, running, laughing or sneezing and know that that’s a sign that you need to take control of your Pelvic Health?

  • Do you have ‘lower back pain’ issues that you’ve been told is due to a ‘weak Core’?

  • Do you want a better looking belly but know it’s an inside out job so need to go deeper and work smarter than just doing ‘sit-ups’?
