On Demand: Postpartum Pilates
Learn how to sensibly regain your strength in the postnatal period and safely return to your pre-pregnancy fitness regime. This programme is six progressive postpartum Pilates workouts that will safely reconnect you with your core and strengthen your pelvic floor and abdominals (even if you have Diastasis Recti). Safe to begin in the early postnatal period.
Even if you have maintained your fitness regime throughout your pregnancy, getting back your pre-baby physique can be a challenge. That's why I have tailored this Pilates programme to new mothers who need a little more support getting back into exercise in the "4th trimester".
This progressive programme helps you to reconnect with your pelvic floor, regain tone in the abdominal muscles and improve posture to ease back pain. It is safe and helpful for those with Diastasis Recti.
The programme is really simple to do and you can easily follow along with the videos. Progressing through each stage of the programme as you feel strong enough, allowing you to go completely at your own pace. The programme will take you a number of weeks, or even a couple of months to complete depending on your unique starting point.
What my clients think:
Having required physio post-pregnancy, I found Emma's ability to adapt moves, and even recommendations for home practice, excellent. Emma has in-depth ante-natal and postpartum training so however pregnancy has affected you physically, she's probably heard of it and can help.
Emma is highly qualified, motivated, enthusiastic, encouraging, also regularly up-skilling, training and sharing her new knowledge or moves. I really feel the benefit for days afterwards!
I can't say enough good things about this programme. My lower back no longer aches at the end of the day, I don't leak if I sneeze and this has done more to flatten my tummy than all the dieting I've been doing so far. Who knew such simple moves could make such a difference.
