Did you know that 1 in 3 women will experience pelvic floor dysfunction? And 1 in 2 women will experience prolapse over a lifetime? Diastasis Recti (abdominal separation) and pelvic floor dysfunction are common following pregnancy but they are not normal.
Before you embark on an exercise program following pregnancy, talk to us about the important considerations and changes you need to make. Correct exercise rehabilitation is crucial before returning to regular exercise or gym programs as incorrect exercise can potentially lead to further complications and injuries.
We aim to educate women on the importance of correct postnatal rehabilitation, empower women to feel confident in understanding their bodies' awesome capabilities, and assist Mums in safely returning to functional activity and exercise following pregnancy.
