Pregnancy fitness classes

First things first: congratulations on your pregnancy. It’s wonderfully exciting expecting a baby, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll be avidly reading your pregnancy books to find out how big your baby is, what you should be eating, not eating, doing, not doing…. The list is endless.

Having said that we can often feel a little worried when it comes to exercising during pregnancy. Should we carry on as if nothing has changed? Should we do no exercise at all? Should we really be running or jogging (there’s been a lot of debate about that)? Are the mainstream classes served up in the local gym or leisure centre a good idea? Isn’t pregnancy yoga the thing to do? Or was it pregnancy Pilates that was recommended? And I’m sure I’ve read something about birthing balls… Hmm, all very confusing.

Here’s why it is best to do specialist pregnancy exercise when you are expecting:

 

  • Pregnancy exercise in leicestershireWorking with someone who is fully trained in pregnancy fitness and who is a member of the Guild of Pregnancy and Postnatal Exercise Instructors will give you the peace of mind that you are being taught by a person who knows specifically how to exercise in pregnancy and how to cater for pregnancy-related problems.
     

 

  • You will be doing exercise that is tailored specifically for pregnancy but also for the stage of pregnancy that you are in – if you are 15 weeks pregnant you won’t be doing the same as when you are 35 weeks pregnant.
     

 

  • Pregnancy is frequently accompanied by all sorts of aches, pains, conditions and complaints. Specialist antenatal classes will cater for your individual pregnancy needs, whether these are pelvic girdle pain, low blood pressure, Carpal Tunnel or gestational diabetes.

 

  • You will be with lots of other mums-to-be and – if you come to my classes! – the likelihood is that you will make firm friends in pregnancy and the postnatal period. There’s nothing better than having a great support system in place when your little one arrives…

 

  • The classes will be designed to actually help alleviate specific pregnancy-related aches, pains and tensions e.g. lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain, tension across the mid-back etc.
