"The best thing in this 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 exercises and the substantial advice.

You can and you should! C-section is one of the biggest surgical procedures at the moment. Most of these surgeries are done via endoscopy nowadays. C-section breaks seven layers of the stomach, splitting your abdominal muscles and nerves as well. It’s of great importance that the core (incl. pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscles) is exercised so that the nerves recover and all the muscles can be used in their natural way. All the exercises of this course can be done in the same way, no matter if you’ve given birth by C-section or vaginally.
Yes, you can. All the exercises of this course are safe to do even if you suffer from the separation of your abdominal muscles (diastasis recti). Actually, these exercises are designed to fix the separation. You’ll get plenty of information on how to safely exercise while suffering from separation .If you also have a hernia, heavy back pain or the separation is big and the skin looks thin so that you can “see through your pulse,” it’s recommended for you to contact a local doctor or physiotherapist specialized in the pelvic floor area.
You can take part in this course as soon as you feel good, definitely after your six-week postpartum checkup. This course starts with pelvic floor exercises, which are recommended to start as soon as possible after childbirth. After this, we’ll move on to deep abdominal muscles, exercising them gently. All exercises are safe to do if you suffer from diastasis recti. Pelvic floor muscles are the first muscles of the core to activate. If the activation of them isn’t right, your core might nor be working as it's supposed to be. After labour, a lot of different factors affect the feeling and condition of your body, and these experiences are always very personal. Instead of worrying about something, you should ask advice from a physiotherapist specialized in the pelvic floor area. During this course, feel free to ask any questions from your coach. We are here to help.
Yes, and it’s the great thing about exercising your core as it has no due date and every moment is a good moment to begin! This course is targeted to all mothers with babies, toddlers or teenagers, it is never too late. The course takes the challenges of everyday life with a baby into consideration, but of course the exercises for beginners are the same, no matter what the situation is. The condition of your pelvic floor muscles can be enhanced during this course and you can get rid of discomforts such as urinary incontinence even at retirement age.
No, we are not. Crunches bulge the belly and sit-ups are even worse. All crunch-like motions where the shoulders come off the floor contribute to separation of abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) by very nature of biomechanics. Planks are also inadvisable until while there is still a gap between your abdominal muscles because of the gravitational pressure pushing down and out on your damaged core.
Training on your own is good for you, and you should do it indeed. While exercising on your own some questions might cross your mind though, and you might not have anyone to answer them. The goal of this course is to comprehend a big amount of information about changes in your body, the recovery of it and to learn about safe exercising after pregnancy. In this course we also aim to talk about things that aren’t spoken out that often and that many women live with accepting them maybe for the rest of their lives even if there is plenty you can do!
The goal of this course is to remind you of your exercises and bring them in your everyday life with a baby so that you actually do these exercises every day. While exercising your pelvic floor and core, regularity and perseverance are of great importance. In my case as I was exercising alone, at some point I noticed exercising in a wrong way and consequently harming my vulnerable body and slowing down my recovery. This is one issue we are going to tackle during this course because the participants get their daily instructions to every move both verbally and explained in pictures and on video. In addition the exercises of this course have more variation than often exercising on your own. The progress happens faster due to varied stimulus.
