- Diastasis Recti, Prolapse, Pelvic Girdle Pain
I love working with women at this wonderful time and I am committed and passionate about giving women the tools for a healthy pregnancy, birth and beyond!
Pilates is beneficial before and after all types of birth and I will support whatever direction you take. My prenatal programmes are structured to address postural changes and demands throughout each trimester. The prenatal programme for new clients starts at 13 weeks and from then on I will work with you to set a foundation in deep abdominal strength to support your baby. Pilates is suitable to continue with right up until the birth but the pace will adapt as your pregnancy progresses and the focus of classes will change as the birth approaches. We will work on optimal foetal positioning and prepare your body for your birthing experience and beyond.
I have experience in successfully working with a range of pregnancy related conditions including Pelvic Girdle Pain, sciatica, back and neck problems, pelvic floor weakness and carpal tunnel syndrome. I am qualified as a pregnancy yoga teacher with triyoga and have also attended an Active Birth course with Janet Balaskas, which have both influenced my style of teaching to assist you with positions for labour, birth preparation and breathing techniques.
I believe Pilates should be the starting point for all women in their postnatal recovery. I love to help women enjoy regaining stability and strength, increase their energy levels and learn techniques to support their posture and every day activities with their babies.
I have experience in supporting new Mums with a range of post natal conditions including Diastasis Recti, sacro-iliac problems, Pelvic Girdle Pain, pelvic organ prolapse or weakness and general back pain.
