As a physio working in women’s health, I’m certainly an advocate for staying fit and healthy before, during and after pregnancy. Throughout pregnancy and during those first few months after birth, it’s sometimes difficult to know how to approach exercise and can be overwhelming to face in the midst of morning sickness, fatigue and sleep deprivation.
In this episode, I talk about some important things to consider when thinking about exercise and 4 common areas that can impede your after birth recovery. I discuss why some women stop exercising altogether and the impact this has on their physical and mental health. I talk about making sure your body is ready before you get back into running, understanding how to look after your pelvic floor muscles and seeking help where you need to.
Becoming a mamma is an amazing experience and also one that can take its toll on your physical and mental health. I hope this episode equips you with the confidence you need to keep moving ahead, wherever you are on your journey.
