Staying active during your pregnancy has multiple benefits from improving your physical health, the health of your growing baby and decreasing the chances of complicated labour, to name just a few. Pre-natal personal training takes all the guesswork out of what exercises you can and can't do and what is exactly right for you.
Not only will training help you stay as comfortable and pain free as possible with your growing bump, but also keep your core muscles healthy, keeping you stronger during your pregnancy and making recovery post-pregnancy easier.
Training your core-muscles the right way during pregnancy can help in many ways. Obviously the goals isn't to get defined abs, but having good core strength can help support your back and prevent pain.
Low-level tiredness can be an issues during the first trimester and later on in the third. The right amount of exercise can actually helps to boost energy levels while also improving sleep quality.
Studies have consistently shown that being physically fit reduces the recovery time after labour, regardless of delivery method. So it's not too late to improve your health once you are pregnant.

Train the right way to get back to full-strength as quickly as possible after pregnancy.
Your time is limited when you have a newborn, so make sure to train efficiently and effectively with our specialist team. Everyone is different so generic advice doesn't take your needs into account. All sessions are personalised to you.
Exercising after childbirth can be hugely beneficial in restoring strength to enable you to perform the demanding tasks required of a new mum. This can reduces aches and pains and help you move freely.
Making some time for yourself is crucial when you have a newborn. This can have a incredibly positive effect on your mental wellbeing.
Our post-natal personal training sessions are a great way to de-stress and boost your endorphin levels, while looking after your physical health.
The core and pelvic floor muscles require gradual training after the effort of carrying and delivering your baby. This helps to strengthen your back and reduce stress incontinence.

Pregnancy Massage - Mamma Baby Bliss Treatment
Regular pregnancy massage has been proven to assist with muscular and joint discomfort and to relieve feelings of anxiety by reducing the amount of cortisol (the stress hormone) in the body. The stimulation of feel-good endorphins can improve sleep and reduce fatigue - helping you maintain optimal wellbeing. There are many changes during your pregnancy. Some of the changes include a change in posture resulting in lower back ache as your tummy starts to get bigger. Some women complain of sciatic type pain down one side of their body which is often due to the increased pressure the lower back and pelvis are feeling, combined with inactivity of the bottom muscles. Pelvic girdle pain (PGP) or symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) is often caused by an underlying misalignment in the body causing an uneven pull on the pelvis. Working with a physiotherapist or Osteopath to identify the cause of this, correct exercise and regular pregnancy massage to prevent tension building up can certainly prevent PGP or at least help minimise the symptoms.
Sleep can also become tricky in pregnancy either because you cannot get comfortable, because you may need to get up to empty your bladder more or due to leg cramps/restless leg syndrome.
Massage can help alleviate some of these symptoms and can help you sleep better.
Please note I will only be able to provide massage after the first trimester (12 weeks)

Postnatal Mummy MOT
Up to half of all women experience weakness in both the abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy and up to a third still have a tummy gap at eight weeks post-birth. This can cause instability or poor core strength leading to women developing pelvic or back pain or bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction. These conditions should not be something you should just put up with as a result of having a baby.
It's recommended that women have an initial assessment after their 6-8 week GP check, but I also treat women who gave birth years ago that may still have a tummy gap or related pelvic floor issues.
This involves a hands on assessment, posture and movement screen and a check if needed of the cesarean scar tissue.
