1. Starting working out slowly with the support of professionals
If you push yourself too hard after pregnancy, you can actually be setting yourself back from the recovery. Of course this does not mean you can’t do anything, but be aware what is safe to do.
2. Strengthening your pelvic floor
If the pelvic floor is weak, putting intra-abdominal pressure, like crunches, pilates or general ab work, can put too much pressure on the pelvic floor and inhibit healing or even lead to a chance of organ prolapse. One of the first forms of exercise you can start to incorporate daily can be a pelvic floor routine, re-strengthening or even re-familiarizing yourself with your pelvic floor muscles. And this is where we start.
3. Repairing diastasis recti
It is very common that women experience a separation of the abdominal muscles. So, when easing back to an abdominal workout, be mindful not to overdo it. To avoid and fix it, and to get a flat tummy, you’ll need to know what is safe to do in order not to harm your body. All exercises in Sage and Strong course are safe even though you’ve suffered from abdominal separation. The exercises are designed to fix diastasis recti. All exercises are also medically recommended and suitable after c-section.
4. Goodbye lower back pains
One of the first things women notice when starting to strengthen the core is that all kinds of back pains disappear. The separation of abdominal muscles increases the risk of various back problems and poor posture. A good posture is a prerequisite for flexible and graceful movement and also a person with a good posture looks healthier, younger, more self-confident, and more energetic.
5. No more leaking - laugh, run and jump with no worries
Pelvic floor training has been proven to treat postpartum urinary incontinence, which is very common after giving birth. Pregnancy and delivery weakens muscles around the bladder and pelvis, but with safe exercises, you will be able to control your bladder and enjoy life at the fullest.
6. Improve your sex life
Lack of use or training of pelvic floor, as any muscles, causes them to weaken. Training pelvic floor muscles enhances sexual arousal and pleasure. Taking care of yourself and feeling good and confident in your body has a major effect on feeling sexy and desirable.
7. Time to relax
Including a few moments a day to simply relax can really help to reduce your stress levels. If you are feeling rested and restored, you will have so much more to offer to those that need you.
