Once your baby is born you should start to do gentle, simple exercises to help the body after birth. Depending on the type of delivery, it is advisable to get good advise, pilates is a safe gentle way to move after the babys birth.
Feileacain and FitBod have joined together to offer bereaved parents a monthlyGentle Pilates Class, the class will be a safe, quiet place where mums can feel comfortable with their post natal body. I teach a gentle, relaxing Pilates class suitable for all levels of fitness. I am a loss mum, I lost my baby last year, and although I am a fitness trainer, I am aware of the emotional and physical effects of giving birth to a sleeping baby. This class is free and offers mums a safe place to go where we can all move, breath, stretch, and mostly feel safe with other mums who have experienced a loss.
