Antenatal & Create Lift programmes

Are you pregnant? Worried about your pelvic floor or want to work on your breathing and alignment during pregnancy?

Hypopressives bring some amazing benefits during pregnancy and the postnatal period. The antenatal & postnatal recovery programme gives you all you need to get the maximum benefits of Hypopressives during your pregnancy and postnatally.

So what are the benefits of Hypopressives during pregnancy?

  • ALIGNMENT -  improving your posture and back strength can help you have a more comfortable pregnancy, encourage your baby into a better position, and help reduce pressure along the lines alba at the front of your tummy.

  • PSOAS MUSCLE - you want to keep this important muscle juicy and hydrated, so it can better support your growing baby. Enabling the psoas muscle to stay super functional will also really help when the time comes to birth your baby.

  • MYOFASCIAL RELEASE - the lateral breathing facilitates the release of fascia, which is really important during pregnancy.

  • LATERAL BREATHING - this helps to keep your rib cage in an ideal central position, reducing the risk of getting a high lordosis in your back during pregnancy. It also calms the vagus nerve so it's really relaxing. Getting good synergy between your diaphragm and pelvic floor is great for your pelvic floor muscles and also means that the breath will work in a much more positive way to move your baby down the birth canal. 

And postnatally? Hypopressives have been used in France and Spain for postnatal recovery for decades, and are becoming increasingly popular in the UK - here are some of the benefits:

  • Targeted pelvic floor symptom relief

  • Prolapse symptom reduction

  • Safe core strengthening technique

  • Strengthens linea alba - reducing tummy gaps

  • Tummy toning and waist reducing

  • Strengthens the back and improves posture

  • More comfortable and enjoyable sex

  • Time efficient
