I am so passionate about providing safe exercises for women during pregnancy and after child birth that it actually gets me quite mad and frustrated when I see services advertised for this speciality market that are not suitable. It clearly indicates to me that the person/business offering these services does not have the correct qualifications.
Don't always judge a good deal by the price that they charge. I saw something advertised just recently that seemed like such a brilliant deal that I almost signed up myself!! I read far enough through the terms and conditions to see that this person was not a personal trainer nor a nutritionist yet was giving workouts and advice to others. This is a real shame that this information was only disclosed in the terms and conditions, (and really who reads more than about the first 3 lines before skimming to the bottom!!??).
Some may argue that they did such and such that I advise against yet "turned out OK". But do you really know if you are OK? If you can't see the tissues/muscles on the inside how can you be sure they aren't as good as they could be. If you think you are back to pre-pregnancy state yet plan to have more children how will you know that you corrected the specialised muscles correctly to have a comfortable pregnancy the next time around? What everyone considers to be OK may be different. If you have any light bladder leakage - that in my book is NOT OK. Having a child does not mean you have to accept light bladder leakage as the new normal.
The good news for those who are able to attend exercise classes in Hamilton is that the Mum's & Bubs classes are suitable for both pregnant and postnatal women. The even better news is that I am going to be releasing an online exercise programme for pregnant women. I currently have an online postnatal exercise programme but will be bringing out one for pregnant women. This will mean that no matter where you are located I will have both yours and bubs health and safety covered from conception through to after birth.
Stay tuned and I'll soon have your bumps both pre-birth and post-birth looked after!!
