I am a qualified level 3 pre- and postnatal exercise personal trainer, so I can develop a safe training program for you both during your pregnancy and after the birth of your child.
Once you have the all clear from your doctor we can start to train together. If you had a vaginal delivery this is normally around 6 weeks after the birth, for a caesarean section is it around 8-10 weeks. During this initial period you should be focusing on recovery. You can, however, start with pelvic floor exercises immediately after the birth. Also after the first week or so you can start walking if you are feeling up to it.
Once we start training together we will focus initially on improving your core strength and pelvic floor muscles, with some light cardio and strength training, so that your body recovers properly before starting a more intense workout. Once you and your body are ready for it we will increase the intensity to improve your fitness and help you reach any other post-partum goals you may have.
