Pregnancy is a life changing event
When you're pregnant, you CAN train but it is more about steady, gentle training. Specific, relevant. You're not trying to loose weight or keep up with everyone else. You don't need to progress, your fitness. You're progressing a pregnancy!
You have two hearts to look after 💜💜
Maintaining good physical, emotional and mental health is important at every life stage. During the four trimesters your body adapts to the differing demands place upon it.
Best advice I can give you is:
Avoid starting a new exercise regime. Instead get professional tailored guidance. You're focus isn't "to feel the burn", get delayed onset muscle soreness or lose weight now!
Take the time to get clued up about what exercises are the most appropriate and what to avoid. It's strongly advised that you factor in your postnatal health too as time really does fly by!
Adapting exercise for antenatal postnatal groups
Working with women's health is part and parcel of what I do. I help clients who have high blood pressure, back pain and sciatica, pelvic girdle pain and symphysis pubis dysfunction, rectus diastasis (natural abdominal muscle separation post pregnancy) and weak pelvic floor problems. If you have a health condition and your doctor has given that important cue to 'go head and start exercising', I'm happy to help! Interested an antenatal 1-2-1?
