Pre and Post Natal Exercise at Oak Park
What is pre and post natal exercise?
The benefits of exercise are well known and varied, however during the pre and postnatal period it is especially important to exercise in the correct manner. Our pre and post natal exercise sessions are under the supervision of a physio. They are often inspired by Pilates and are modified to best support your body’s needs.
What can pre and post natal exercise help with?
Pregnancy and early post-partum can be a physically challenging time for women as their body undergoes a series of changes.
During pregnancy, specific exercises are recommended by your physio to help manage and prepare your pelvic floor and minimise overall body aches and pains.
Following birth, returning to non-impact exercise will help to strengthen your abdominals and pelvic floor which can be extremely important for a healthy recovery.
