Pregnancy is not the time to give up on exercise in fact it is more important than ever to stay fit and healthy. It is best for both you and your baby to stay strong physically. We can help to alleviate some of the problems associated with pregnancy and also prepare you for labor. By exercising throughout pregnancy you will also find it easier to get back into shape post baby.
Benefits of exercising throughout pregnancy:
- Boost Energy
- Enhance Sleep
- Reduce risk of certain pregnancy related complications
- Reduce pregnancy discomfort
- Prepare for childbirth
- Reduce stress and lift your spirits
- Improve your self-image
- Get your body back faster after childbirth
As soon as you have been signed off by your doctor we can get to work on regaining your pre-baby body. However, we do not believe that losing weight should be the top priority. It is more important to take things slowly so that your body heals. We will work on regaining pelvic floor and core stability. If you suffer from diastasis recti (separation of the abdominals), we will target this area so that your body is not left vulnerable to injury.
Benefits of exercising post pregnancy:
- Helps strengthen and tone the abdominals
- Boosts energy
- May be useful in reducing postpartum depression
- Promotes better sleep
- Relieves stress
- Improves self-image
