Health, wellbeing and looking after myself have always been very important parts of my life. After having two of my children very close together, I felt like a stranger in my own body. I have always been active, but after having children, there were many exercises that felt totally different or were not possible to do in the way I had done them before. Also, my posture looked different, and I was not able to run like I used to.When I first started to train after pregnancies, I did many mistakes in my own exercise. That is the reason why I later studied pre- and post-natal coaching, and it is why I now want to spread this very important information as wide as I can, so that mommies can start to train after giving birth in a safe way and to feel good about themselves and their bodies.
By doing the correct exercises, it was amazing how much I was able to help myself, fix my diastasis recti, and feel better in my body. At the moment, I feel like I am in as good of a condition as I was before my pregnancies, and I’m happy and energetic, which gives me a lot of energy to cope in all kinds of everyday life situations that you run into when having kids.
This is a very important subject to me, and many things related to problems after having children are often taboos. I want to teach other women and mothers so they can start training in a safe way after giving birth. One of the most important things you can do for your children is to look after yourself.
As a yoga teacher, my core is strong. It’s been 13 years since my last birth, yet I still suffer from some abdomen separation. I’ve long suspected my beloved planks were not helping. I appreciate the content of this course, as well as the emphasis on activation as well as relaxation. It’s amazing how these simple exercises are so powerful in rehabilitating a mother’s body.
Once you sign up for the course, you’ll gain access to the online platform with all the videos at your fingertips. Every weekday of the five-week course, you’ll get an email reminder that the next video is ready for you (but don’t worry if you miss a day or want to redo a day, as the videos are all waiting for you.) You can also mark each video as complete in your account, so that you know exactly where you left off. Each video is only 10-15 minutes of your day – Nordic Fit Mama understands that new moms are understandably pressed for time, tired, and can only give so much every day and this course is intended to help you, energize you, heal your abdominal muscles and respect your time as a new mama.
The best thing about this maternity course was to get all this information about this subject as I didn’t know enough of it beforehand. It’s very important to examine the separation of your abdominal muscles so that the rehabilitation will proceed well. To me the most important things were the exercises and the substantial advice. I could apply them to my own exercises at home. I believe that the information and exercises I learned during this course affected my rehabilitation in a positive way.
Very useful information that can be applied to the post-pregnancy training and exercises of your middle body. I discovered my pelvic floor muscles and received a handful of wise and effective tips to control my middle body. I also learned how to directionally test the post-pregnancy and -labour separation of your abdominal muscles at home.
This maternity course made me realize how important it really is to listen to your body and rehabilitate it after pregnancy. I’ve managed to rehabilitate my separation in a period of one year and I’m sure it wouldn’t be so if it wasn’t for the active exercising and on the contrary avoiding certain too harsh exercises. I recommend this course to everyone that is interested in post-pregnancy rehabilitation at all - in other words, every mother gone through labour!
