Looking for a trainer you can trust?
There's a lot of mis-information and frankly, BS, out there about pregnancy and postnatal/postpartum exercise. Sometimes "qualified" fitness trainers just aren't, and the advice we see via media and social media (I'm looking at you Instagram) is misleading and often damaging.
So who do you turn to for pre and postpartum exercise and proper recovery and rehabilitation?
You may not get the right physical check-up from your GP, so make sure you visit a Women's Health Physio for a post-6-week assessment and examination. You'll find out what stage you're at and how to help your rehabilitation. Then, when you're ready to rejoin the world of exercise (and we do advocate taking the first 6 weeks easily!) make sure you use a properly qualified trainer, or visit a class designed for new mums.
Please beware - some of postpartum trainers and mom/mum & baby classes don't make the right modifications for different stages and you may be going beyond yourself. If you have any doubts about the content of your sessions, drop us a line and we'd be happy to answer your queries!
