Today, experts agree it’s important to keep moving: Pregnant women who exercise have less back pain, more energy, a better body image and, post-delivery, a faster return to their pre-pregnancy shape.
The more active and fit you are during pregnancy, the easier it will be for you to adapt to your changing shape and weight gain. It will also help you to cope with labour and get back into shape after the birth.
Exercise is not dangerous for your baby – there is some evidence that active women are less likely to experience problems in later pregnancy and labour.
At Xavier Gomez Fitness, training with professionals, our clients learn specific exercises within a tailor made programme and we can teach gentle exercises giving you confidence to continue your workout at home. We focus on three main exercises; stomach-strengthening exercises, pelvic tilt exercises and pelvic floor exercises. Work, patience, time and effort are the ingredients to avoid the possibility of postnatal depression and, at the same time, keep fit. Postnatal training will help you improve your energy levels and, of course, your self-esteem.
From 4 or 6 weeks after labour, and if there are no complications, your body will be ready to return to full functionality. At Xavier Gomez Fitness we organise postnatal training sessions through one-hour sessions twice a week. We target on improving muscle imbalances or stresses, which were causes by the change in centre of gravity, and help your body recovery quickly from abrupt weight loss.
