Training throughout your pregnancy, as long as we take into consideration the changes in your body and how this affects the movements you can do safely + effectively, is hugely beneficial.
Strength training in particular when pregnant brings an abundance of benefits, as the stronger your body is, the better equipped it will be to deal with childbirth (AND with being a busy mum afterwards!).
As well as maintaining the strength you already have, it’s hugely important to learn how to strengthen your pelvic floor, as well as alleviate any discomfort you may have as your baby grows. These are just a few of the things we need to focus on during pregnancy in regards to your physical fitness.
If you’ve recently had a baby and are looking to get back into training, it is extremely important to go at a pace that your body can cope with. Carrying a child for 9 months, followed by delivering a baby (whether that’s naturally or through c-section) puts huge stress on the body and it is therefore vital that we take this into consideration when bringing you back to exercise.
As a specially qualified postnatal trainer, I am able to design a safe and effective exercise programme for you after you have had your baby. Re-strengthening your pelvic floor and core muscles are of upmost importance, alongside helping to educate you about the right nutrition to fuel your body as a new Mum.
