Time With Your Newborn Baby Is So Precious. How Do I Find The Time To Exercise And Why Is Post-Natal Exercise So Important?
For many new mums, exercise takes a back seat for other more urgent concerns such as sleep and bonding with your newborn. However by taking a quick and efficient 10 minutes out of your day, you’ll find a renewed energy for yourself and your baby.
After training many new mums, I have seen the many different barriers to exercise during this magical but extremely tiring time. Every new mum’s barriers are different, some of you are attached to the baby by breastfeeding and other mums are struggling to settle their newborn into a sleeping pattern. There are mums who have the support network and others who are isolated with little help.
Due to the barriers, exercise is not a pressing concern, however your body has gone through such major changes that it
is so important to work on certain key areas of your body such as your core strength to make you more functional, not to mention the endorphins released to make you feel a happier and healthier mum.
The post-natal period can be just as physically and mentally demanding as the prenatal stage. Physically your body
needs to recover from the demands of childbirth. However I want to advise you on the reasons why exercise is so important physically and psychologically.

Psychological and Emotional Benefits to Post Natal Exercise
New mothers are able to exercise just 6 weeks after giving birth, after your post-natal check-up. With C-sections, it
tends to be 8 weeks. But where do you start?
It is important to find ways in which you can incorporate it into your new routine as a mum. Here are a few ways in which
you can bring fitness back into your life:
