Are you pregnant or postnatal and aren’t feeling great? Do you want to know how to move safely and wisely throughout pregnancy, honouring your body as it grows a new human?
Or, are you a mummy who has come out the other side of pregnancy feeling “bleurgh”? Have you suffered birth injuries, pelvic floor dysfunction, prolapse, pelvic pain and now don’t know how to move safely, but know that you really need to get moving again?
Pregnancy & Postnatal Specialist
If this sounds a bit like you, I can help as a specialist in pregnancy and postnatal movement, exercise and recovery. I love to work with women who feel like they can’t exercise elsewhere, for women who are lost in their postnatal body (however postnatal that body might be) and for those women who need something more than what a standard gym can give you.
I have worked with hundred’s of women to help them recover optimally from their pregnancies, irrespective of the battle scars their labour and delivery has blessed them with.
The new postnatal body is amazing. It is strong and powerful, but it needs to be moved and trained differently. Let me help you learn why and how.
How I work
I offer a variety of personal training options either at your home or at my boutique Studio above Emma’s Babyswim in Kilsyth.
An Initial Consultation is always the starting point of your truly Personal Training experience – it’s a lot of talking – and enables us to get to know each other – for me to understand your full medical and training history, and analyse your goals. We also use the time to establish some benchmarks and agree the best training options for you moving forwards.
I believe strongly that all training needs to be considered holistically – I ask that you trust me with knowing how best to work and care for your body, and get you what you need, as well as what you want.
Therefore my sessions are always varied and will utilise the Power Plate, boxing, strength/weights work, Gymstick and a multitude of other tools, depending on where your body is on any given day. Sessions always include mobilisation, assisted stretching and massage, suggestions for solo-training in between our PT appointments and nutritional support if required.
In addition to specialising with women who have complicated training needs, I have spent many years working with women who have pelvic floor dysfunction, prolapse, and pelvic pain or are recovering from prolapse surgery. I work closely with local Women’s Health Physiotherapists, and your own Allied Health Professionals to ensure that you receive a joined-up and consistent approach to your recovery.
PT options include one-on-one (1:1) or Buddy (1:2) training as either 45-minute workouts or 55-minutes for 1:2 sessions. These can be purchased in packs of two or eight sessions.
