Post Natal Training

Laura will create a bespoke programme taking into consideration the birth of your child, your previous exercise experience and any issues (pelvic floor incontinence, ab separation, postural imbalances and muscular weaknesses) you might have.

Laura will begin with a combination of bodyweight exercises and resistance bands, incorporating yoga for flexibility and mobility. When you are ready she will add weights and cardio to build a healthy and strong physique from the inside out.

Sessions will focus on:

  • Engaging deep abdominals
  • Breath work (linking breath to movement and pelvic floor)
  • Strengthening glutes
  • Strengthening and opening upper back to support feeding
  • Improving cardio fitness

Laura welcomes (encourages!) babies at your sessions and is very happy to entertain/feed/change nappies/snuggle throughout the session so that you can focus on yourself.

Before your session

It is essential that you have had your 6 week Doctor’s check before you book in your first training session.

Laura would also strongly advise you to see a women’s health physiotherapist for a Post Natal Full Body Check/ “Mummy MOT” following your 6 week Doctor’s check.

This will usually consist of:

  • Pelvic Floor Function Testing.
  • Full Back, Pelvis and Posture Analysis.
  • Detailed Abdominal Muscle Assessment (using ultrasound too if necessary).
  • C-Section Scar Assessment (advice on massaging it to break up the scar tissue).

Laura recommends the physiotherapists below but most physiotherapy centres now offer this service.

Please fill out the questionnaire prior to your first training session:

Laura looks forward to meeting you and your little one soon.

Client Testimonials

  • “Sessions with Laura ensure I do at least one session of exercise a week and even with just that one session I have seen a great improvement in my strength, flexibility and my overall health. She keeps me motivated, always tailors the sessions to how I’m feeling and despite how I feel before the session I always feel good after.”

    – Martha J
  • “I can’t recommend Laura enough as a personal trainer. She is great at keeping the sessions varied and interesting and really makes the most of the hour session. She is also a complete natural with children and will be happy to hold/entertain your baby if they decide they want to be awake and join the session! I’ve really noticed an improvement in my strength since working with Laura and she really inspires me to keep doing regular exercise between sessions.”

  • “Laura has been an amazing trainer helping me get back into shape post baby. It was a slightly daunting prospect getting back into exercise after my c section but Laura has made the sessions fun and challenging. Laura is also a super star with baby, a complete natural and is on hand to deal with any baby melt downs mid session! We both look forward to our weekly sessions.”
