Strength & Exercise.
Getting back to exercise or starting movement after a baby is important for your overall recovery but can improve both your physical and mental well-being.
It all depends on the birth but a general guide of gentle exercise and movement such as walking can be introduced after birth. After having the 6-week consultation will enable the pelvic health physiotherapist to set realistic goals for your return to exercise, movement, running or weightlifting.
Weightlifting during perimenopause and menopause is recommended to reduce menopause symptoms and reduce the link to osteoporosis. During the initial consultation, a bespoke strength and conditioning program will be devised where we can set strength-based goals.
Menopause typically occurs in women between the ages of 45 and 55, and while one in four women won’t experience any symptoms, the other three most likely will. Some of these symptoms can include hot flushes, anxiety, irritability, forgetfulness, and disturbances in sleeping patterns

During pregnancy, post-pregnancy and menopause the body experiences so many musculoskeletal and hormonal changes.
Pilates-based exercises for antenatal, postnatal and beyond is a great way to load and strengthen the muscles using both body weight and spring-based resistance. Each program for expectant and new mothers focuses on the body movement patterns, working on spinal mobility, stretches, strengthening and re-educating how to contract the breath, core and pelvic floor function.
