“I could bring my son along too, perfect!”
Following the birth of my son, I ended up with severe weakness of my pelvic floor muscles. I also had diastasis recti and was told to do sit-ups by my midwife! After searching around, I was fortunate enough to find the contact details for Jayne Hume. Jayne personally called me to find out more about me, my postnatal health and how she could help. She told me all about the wonderful classes she runs where exercise is tailored to suit postnatal mums, allowing core muscles and pelvic floor to be strengthened without high impact exercises that will hinder recovery, such as sit-ups! I loved going to these classes. I could bring my son along too, perfect! She also provided me with the contact details of Fiona Mitchell, a physiotherapist who specialises in pelvic health. Through the work of both of these wonderful ladies, I was able to become stronger, strengthen my pelvic and core muscles and recover. When I was stronger I began attending the advanced classes, targeted at women further along their postnatal journey but still the right kind of exercises. Now I am pregnant with my second child and am attending the pregnancy classes enabling me to exercise safely, meet fellow mum's and help prepare my body for giving birth. I thoroughly recommend getting in touch with Jayne and seeing what she has to offer you. She is so friendly and very knowledgeable!
