Designed to Support you post natally so you get back to feeling yourself.




Your tummy and pelvic floor muscles were put under considerable strain as your baby grew bigger and during your labour & birth. The hormone relaxin causes the stabilising connective tissue and ligaments to loosen making you more susceptible to injury and misalignments.


Pilates exercises activate the deepest layer of your tummy muscles, necessary to stabilising your back and pelvis.


Where you may have once or never had a six pack, your tummy muscles (Rectus Abdominals) have been stretched to accommodate your growing baby and they take time to re connect, you may have also suffered with back or pelvic pain.


Your pelvic floor muscles have been put under considerable pressure and need to re engage to re connect. You may notice your bladder isn’t what it used to be when you cough or sneeze, or feel a sensation of heaviness down below. Whatever you do don’t try trampolining like I did within a fortnight of giving birth :-)


At the centre of this program the tummy, back and pelvic floor are the target, without putting any strain on the RAs and joints.
