The A Life guide to Post Natal Care

Posted on: July 3rd, 2019 by thealife_admin in No Comments

Q. When can I do exercise once I have given birth?

It depends, there are many factors to consider when it comes to returning to a safe movement practice.
Firstly what kind of birth you had is a factor, intervention required, your recovery, current pain and energy levels all need to be taken into consideration.

This is why we always recommend an appointment with one of our Osteopaths anytime after 4 weeks post birth so we can have an understanding on your birth story and current recovery as well as give you a physical assessment and understand the cause of any current symptoms. This way we can give you a thorough guideline on how to listen to your body and safely build up your movement practice.

Q. What are my options at The A Life for returning to movement post natal?

We have a few options to get back into movement after giving birth…

Q. How can Osteopathy help me post partum?

Q. What can I do in the first 4 weeks after giving birth?

Firstly enjoy this sacred time with your bub! Breath and take care of yourself.

In these first few weeks getting support from family and friends might be the best thing so you can get sleep for recovery.

Focusing on deep breaths is also something you can do everyday, try this:
– Sit up right, put one hand on your belly and one hand on your chest
– Keeping your chest relaxed (and top hand from moving)  breathe into your lower rib cage. Feel it expand – front, side, and back, with each inhalation.
– Exhale slowly and fully. This will help release tension in your diaphragm and pelvic floor. Plus it activates your deep abdominal muscles – bonus!
