The most difficult job in the world...

 

Pregnancy and childbirth can pose difficulties for the whole family, but for new Mothers there are so very many changes and challenges with which to contend.

In the postpartum period there can be a whole host of physiological and lifestyle changes that can affect someone and these can make exercising very difficult: 

  • Fatigue
  • a lack of time
  • Issues with childcare
  • Lethargy
  • A lack of advice from health professionals. 

And any number of other potential roadblocks. 

 

But there are so many benefits of exercise after pregnancy...

 

  • Assistance with weight loss

  • Restoring abdominal strength

  • Maintaining bone density

  • Reducing anxiety and post natal depression

  • Quickening recovery from pregnancy and childbirth

  • Preventing incontinence

 

 

 

Post Natal Pilates

My Post Natal Pilates classes are specifically designed for new Mums and their babies. Exercises I would normally use in my regular Pilates classes are modified and adapted to cater for the kind of physiological changes that take place to a woman's body during pregnancy and childbirth. 

The classes are also tailored for you and your baby so they can feel involved and you can learn how to exercise with them during that vital first year when leaving them alone isn't really an option!
