POSTNATAL SUPPORT

If you’ve ever had a baby, you are postnatal. It doesn’t matter whether your baby is 6 minutes or 16 years old. 

 

Since having my own children and talking with my other mum friends, I have come to the realisation that recovering well from childbirth is not a given. I was lucky enough to know all the right things to do due to my background as a Physiotherapist and teaching Pilates. Many of my friends were not so lucky and years down the line were struggling with back pain or weakness in the abdominals and pelvic floor leaking limiting their physical activity, amongst other issues.

 

This lead me into doing some more training as a pre- and postnatal recovery specialist. I run groups on social media, teach postnatal classes and have created a variety of postnatal courses to help support women to recover well and regain their confidence and strength. Something I am very passionate about is helping women to live a full and active life after childbirth.

 

In order to recover well and to gradually and safely rebuild your body after childbirth, it is important to do the right exercises at the right time for your body. Everybody is different and every childbirth experience affects the body differently. It can feel overwhelming to know where to begin and that is why we have developed our assessments, courses and support to help you recover well.

 

POSTNATAL ASSESSMENT

We offer a postnatal assessment which is a 1:1 session either in person at our clinic in South Woodford or online, where we can talk through your pregnancy/pregnancies and childbirth(s) and assess your pelvic floor function, check for an abdominal separation and set you on the right path to recovery for you.

 

ONLINE COURSES

We also have online courses you can access at any time to fit around the busyness of life with a little one. Whether you have just had your baby and want to do our Stage 1 Postnatal Recovery course to help gently rebuild your pelvic floor function, abdominal strength and posture, or you have a specific issue such as an abdominal separation/diastasis recti or pelvic floor dysfunction there is a course for you. 

 

SUPPORT FOR THOSE WITH OLDER CHILDREN

For women who are further along the journey, maybe years down the line, and are just starting to address physical issues resulting from childbirth, I have my signature 12-Week Whole Body Rebuild course. This is a comprehensive and holistic course addressing all the aspects of postnatal recovery. We set goals together and look at mindset, nutrition, mental health, time-management and motivation as well as the physical recovery of the body. This course is designed to help you feel STRONG and CONFIDENT in your body once more.
