The following videos give you a simple understanding of the changes that happen to your Pelvic Floor & Abdomen during Pregnancy and After Birth and then what the aim is to achieve in the 1st 6 weeks after Birth. There are 2 parts to the work on if you are in the 1st 6 week stage after birth.
1st PART – Learning How to do Diaphragmatic Breathing and Gentle Pelvic Floor Contractions of your Pelvic Floor
2nd PART – Simple Ab Curl Exercises That will Help Start Restoring the Rectus Abdominis (6 pack) muscles to their Pre Pregnancy State
We recommend practicing the Diaphragmatic Breathing and Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises whenever you can at intervals throughout the day and the Ab Curl Exercises Once a Day to See Fast Results!
The great thing is you can do the exercises anytime and no equipment or space needed.
Once you reach the 6 week point you can move on to the next stage of Strengthening your Pelvic Floor and advance the Ab Curl exercises to restore your Rectus Abdominis Muscles further. Go to ‘Get Back To Being You’ in the HUB at this point.
