I am extremely passionate about preparation!
Preparation can start while you are thinking of becoming pregnant, trying to conceive, & most commonly if you are already pregnant, no matter how many weeks pregnant, its never to late to start.
Your pregnant body undergoes a lot of changes during the approximately 40 ish weeks of pregnancy. Preparation is key to help the body carry strong through pregnancy, minimise common aches & pains & effectively prepare for labour, birth & beyond.
I see preparation as supporting your changing body through pregnancy with targeted movements & exercise.
This in turn also helps prepare the body, muscles & tissue for a smoother more optimal labour & birth experience, & early postnatal recovery phase.
Within my prenatal sessions I also like to focus on preparing the body for the movements of motherhood.
Your body will be moving in many new ways as you care for your newborn, baby, toddler etc, & a lot of these movements are repeated day in day out, & quite hard on the body. For example lifting baby in & out of a cot, lifting car seats, being on the floor with baby. It is wonderful for the body to be prepared for these new ways in which it will move & to know how to minimise & alleviate aches & pains associated with these new movements.
both prenatal & postnatal time periods are unique & can be unpredictable,
but what we can do together is prepare your body, stack the odds in your favour,
& create the conditions to make your pregnancy, labour, birth,
& early postnatal phase the best experience it can be
