You’re expecting. CONGRATULATIONS!
Finding out you’re expecting is an exciting time, but you may also feel nervous. Especially if you’ve had a difficult birth or heard stories from your friends about their less-than-pleasant experiences.
And you’re probably wondering how to best prepare yourself for the most pleasant birth experience possible and accelerate your recovery after so you can get back to the activities you love.
The good news is you can take many simple steps to prepare yourself physically and mentally for the best birth and recovery possible.
But Kath, what does a great birth and recovery journey look like exactly?
I’m glad you asked! Every woman’s birthing experience and recovery is unique, but some of the most common ways my clients experience their “best” birth possible:
- Being able to move your body while pregnant with safe movements that keep your body strong leading up to when you give birth.
- Heading into birth with minimal back and pelvic pain OR if you feel pain, you know simple ways to help (or support) your body as it moves through it.
- Knowing how to prepare for labour with evidence-backed massage and active birth techniques.
- Feeling calm and at ease going into birth because you’re prepared for what comes next in terms of after-care for you and your baby. You’re equipped and educated on how to heal your pelvic floor and core after birth.
The best way to prepare yourself is with mindful, supportive movement (like pilates and yoga designed for pregnant women) designed by peri-natal experts who have your back.
