As a mum of 3 and physiotherapist working in women’s health, I understand that growing and birthing babies is a beautiful yet sometimes overwhelming experience. During pregnancy and beyond, we undergo numerous changes and many women experience aches and pains they didn’t have before.
In this episode, I share my top 5 tips on things to consider when approaching exercise during pregnancy. From tiredness to morning sickness, back pain and swelling, it can be more challenging to exercise while growing a baby. I share some practical ways you can approach exercise in the best and safest way possible.
I discuss an overview of pelvic floor and abdominal exercises, tips on lifting, managing the demands of a toddler while pregnant and recommendations on the types of exercises to pursue. If you have any specific questions regarding this topic or anything to do with pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period, please drop me a line. It’s my joy to help mothers experience a happy and healthy pregnancy.
