Pregnancy Related Questions
We recommend you start Prenatal Core Training during your second trimester after nausea has passed and you have a bit more energy. You’ll want at least six weeks before your due date to train your abdominals and pelvic floor for labor, delivery, and recovery. The more time you have, the stronger you will be.
However, if you just found us and don’t have six weeks, our Prenatal Crash Course would be more beneficial than nothing.
If you did Prenatal Core Training with us during your pregnancy, it is safe to slowly start back as soon as 24 hours after delivery. This healing process will help you connect with and care for yourself and your baby. If you did not do core training with us during pregnancy, we recommend waiting 6 weeks before starting Core Foundations for postpartum rehabilitation.
It is recommended to at least make your diastasis smaller and improve core connection before getting pregnant again. However, if you do get pregnant and have not yet done core rehabilitation, it is best to start as soon as you can to keep the diastasis from getting larger. Our Prenatal Core Training program is completely safe to do while pregnant.
We have a course just for you! Our Core Preparations for Cesarean Birth course is designed to strengthen your abdominals during pregnancy to reduce recovery time. It will also give you the muscle memory to more easily do the exercises after the birth.
