All new mothers should check with their doctor before starting any exercise program including ours. Mothers who have had a c section need to be especially cautious and can join us when baby is 10 weeks, providing they have permission from their doctor.

About Exercise with Baby

It is important to remember that your body goes through a lot of changes during and after pregnancy and thus postnatal exercise needs to be specifically designed for your needs.

Some of your muscles are weakened during pregnancy (including Abdominals) and others can disengage completely (including the Gluteus Maximus), these muscles need to be rebuilt to prevent putting strain on other parts of your body.

We also check all new ladies for abdominal muscle separation, this is a quick and simple test but it is very important to detect separation and we can give you additional exercises to repair the muscles.

The Hormone Relaxing causes your body to be more supple in preparation for childbirth but it can also stay in the system for up to a year after giving birth. Its your joints that really take the brunt of this softening as they are not fully supported, this can easily lead to injury (most commonly knees, ankles, hips& wrists) so it is important that your exercise program is designed to prevent this.

Our program is designed to ease your body back into exercise initially and then get you more fit and toned than ever before!
