Gentle Motion offers a range of post-natal fitness programs that are designed to deliver excellent new Mom care. Whether your child is 3 or 33, our ‘Mommy’ fitness programs can help your body to recover from childbirth while also addressing some of the most common conditions experienced by Moms.
New Mom Care
Childbirth is a very natural experience, but it’s also one that can result in physical trauma, and sometimes emotional trauma, too. Having a baby is a life-changing event, and many women often find that not only do they feel unable to continue with their regular exercise routine after giving birth, but also that they don’t have the time to complete full workouts. They may also find that their normal exercises are quite painful, or that they aren’t very effective at helping to get the body ‘back to normal’.
In fact, there are a number of standard exercises that could actually prevent your body from healing as it should after having a baby, or which could slow down the recovery process. Certain high intensity exercises and stretches, such as running, jumping jacks, and crunches, for example, may do more long term harm than good.
At Gentle Motion, we specialize in customized post-natal fitness programs for new moms experiencing:
- Incontinence: It’s very common to struggle to control toilet habits after having a baby, and you may notice that some of the high intensity workouts found in bootcamps can exacerbate the condition and make it worse.
- Diastasis Recti: Sometimes, your abdominal walls may not come back together completely, leaving you with a tummy ‘pouch’. Our Mommy fitness programs can help ease the symptoms and help flatten your tummy.
- Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Added pressure during pregnancy can cause your internal organs to shift, which may cause some pain. Specific post-natal exercises can help move the organs back into position.
At Gentle Motion, our customized Mommy fitness programs delivered by our expert personal trainers and therapists are designed to address these concerns, and a wide range of other post-natal conditions.
At Gentle Motion, we understand that many post-natal conditions can affect older people, as well as new moms. Even if your children are now grown, you may still be experiencing the after effects of pregnancy and childbirth, such as incontinence, diastasis recti, or pelvic organ prolapse, and find it difficult to exercise or workout.
Whether you’re a new Mom or would be considered a post-natal senior, Gentle Motion’s customized fitness plans offer simple, straightforward, and gentle exercises to help your body to heal and recover. Schedule a free assessment now, and help yourself to enjoy spending quality time with your family.
