How I can help through your pregnancy

Pregnancy is a very special time for any Mum and there are a lot of changes that happen with in the body. It can be a very exciting time but also an overwhelming time. This is the time to prepare the body for labour and safely strengthen the joints as the ligaments become relaxed with the relaxin hormone.

 

There are many postural changes that happen during this time as the weight of the baby grows and shifts the centre of gravity forward which can cause lower back pain and strain on to the pelvis. By helping to strengthen and support these muscles I can help you to be pain free and as comfortable as possible during your pregnancy.

Pre Natal Training

Benefits of working out during pregnancy:

 

  • Reduces back pain

  • May decrease your risk of gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and cesarean delivery

  • Promotes healthy weight gain during pregnancy

  • Improves your overall general fitness and strengthens your heart and blood vessels

  • Makes it easier to lose any gained baby weight after your baby is born

 

The ACOG guidelines for working out during pregnancy are 150 mins per week of moderate exercise.

How I can help post birth

Once the baby has arrived this can be a very demanding time for any Mum. It is so important for Mums to make time for themselves and practice self care whether this is through massage or exercise. The body goes through so many changes during pregnancy it is important that you look after your body and rebuild and strengthen from the inside out. 

I advise all clients to see a Woman’s health Physio and be signed off by their GP before they commence with training.

There are lots of musculoskeletal changes that happen during this time and it's important to strengthen the posterior chain to support this and help prevent injuries whilst strengthening the body.

Training can be in the comfort of your own home and we can work around you and your baby. I am more than happy to cuddle,  burp or distract your little one so that you can focus on and get the most out of your workout.

Post Natal Massage

Benefits of postnatal massage:

  • Helps with relaxation and reduces stress

  • Helps to ease aches and pains
