Julie is a qualified Exercise Consultant, has a certificate in Pregnancy and Postnatal Exercise and more importantly, a mother of 2 children.
Regular exercise has many benefits during pregnancy and postnatally.
Pregnancy —Exercise will help to maintain fitness, strength and endurance, making the physical demands more manageable and pregnancy more comfortable. Pregnant women will enter labour better equipped with confidence and stamina and postnatally her recovery will be easier and more rapid.
Postnatal —A gradual recovery is essential for a smooth transition to motherhood. With the focus on wellbeing rather than increased aerobic fitness and weight loss in the early stages. Core and pelvic floor strengthening is vital after birth. Lactation requires adequate rest and good nourishment. It may take up to 9 months for the stretched tummy muscles to return to shape. Listen to your body and do not expect too much too soon.
