Online prenatal plans
If you are looking for a little guidance for what to do during each trimester then an online plan might be for you.
Each plan fits in with your life, whether that means 20 minutes at home or an hour at the gym.
With an online prenatal plan, you will receive 3 session plans, which I suggest per trimester.
Each plan is bespoke, taking into account any issues or concerns as well as what equipment you have available.
To set the plan up we will have a Zoom/facetime consultation where I can see how you move and get to know you a little better. From here I programme you a bespoke set of plans for you.
Exercising during pregnancy is beneficial for both mum and baby. It isn't all about "keeping weight down" just as it isn't about chasing new PBs on your squat or running your fastest 10k.
Your body is going to be going through changes and will need to prepare itself for giving birth to your baby and carrying the extra load on your body.
Benefits of exercising during pregnancy:
Reduce low back pain
Are less likely to need an unplanned caesarean
Reduced risk of depression
Gain less weight during pregnancy
Baby to develop a healthier heart with a lower resting heart rate after birth
May decrease your risk of gestational diabetes, preeclampsia
Can help you give birth quicker
Decrease stress and anxiety which in turn may help promote sleep
Maintain fitness levels
Improve pelvic floor
Online postnatal plans
You've had your baby and you're ready to start exercising again. Now is a time to build up your foundations.
Life is probably quite different now and you might find that going to the gym for an hour or having the energy to do so is off the cards.
I can provide you with session plans that are safe, effective and fit in with your life (and energy levels!)
We will have a catch up on Zoom/Facetime so I can assess how you move and get to know you and hear about your birth story. From here I'll write you a bespoke plan.
Each week I will check in with you to see how you are getting on and to keep you motivated.
The plan will be very thorough and personalised to you, with videos and pictures to help you with the exercises.
