Mummys Essential Exercises
1. Click on file above for reminders of some of the ME exercises. It is valuable if you can practice them before you come to class. You can start right after birth taking extra care if you have had a difficult labour or any surgery. Please check with your health professional first. Listen to your body and do the ones that feel helpful. Everyone can start the breathing exercises and pelvic floor awareness. Increasing your awareness is the first step in restoring pelvic balance.
2. To start with little & often is best, try the ones you know from class, do them slowly with your breath; inhale on the effort and exhale relaxing into the movement or letting it go.
Pay attention to the position of your feet, and gently press through them to activate your tummy and pelvic floor when sitting and standing especially when picking up the ‘wee ones’. Focus on your breath with awareness on your pelvic floor & inner thighs and tummy.
