It takes 9 months for your body to transition through the marathon of pregnancy and birth and restoring your body can take just as long. Your body has made many changes along the way and so getting back to an optimally functioning body may take different approaches to the activities you are used to doing.
An assessment will help to inform your choices in your recovery and help answer questions such as:
Should I be doing kegels?
Can I activate my abdominal
Why is my back hurting?
Should I be leaking when I run?
Why do I still have my mummy tummy
3 years later?
Is my body optimised for healing?
Am I doing the right exercise for
your body is at on its journey to recovery is really important because it will
inform your plan to recovery.
The Restoration Mummy Post Natal Assessment is a 90 minute session of assessments of the big players in your recovery. During the session, we will assess:
- Your Breathing
- Your posture
- Check for diastasis
- Check for neurological dysfunction in your c section scar
- Test to see if your pelvic floor muscles are normal, weakened or overtight
Your assessment will include breathing drills to help restore proper diaphragmatic breathing patterns that will help your body to stay in a relaxed state, rather than fight or flight mode. Breathing will also help with closure of the diastasis. You will be given postural exercises to help with correct pelvic, rib and neck alignment; and given advice on appropriate pelvic floor exercises for you (NB. kegels are not for everyone)
The Restoration Mummy assessment can be carried out anytime after your 6-8 week check up with the GP. You do not have to have had a baby recently for a post natal assessment. Once post natal, always post natal!
