Many women find the transition from pregnancy into the postnatal period easily, with no physical problems, whilst others need a little more care and attention.
My Tuesday morning Mum & Baby yoga class is aimed at supporting women in reconnecting with their pelvic floor and core following the birth of baby.
Subjects such as stress incontinence and diastasis recti are often spoken of in hushed tones, and if we’re really honest, they needn’t be. You have just completed the most amazing feat – you have grown and birthed a baby, so it’s a little more than understandable that your body will be having a few issues along the way.
The classes offer safe, gentle yet effective movements to improve function. This isn’t the ‘bums & tums’ classes that are often advertised. All of which are fantastic, once mum has her function restored.
If still breastfeeding, hormones will mean that ligaments and tissues will still be quite soft. So movements need to be modified and executed with great posture.
Healing a diastasis means no crunches (sit ups) for quite some time until the separation is safe and function has been restored.
Classes are small ensuring the ability to offer necessary observation, as well as a helping hand here and there with your little one
