ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT
Well my lovely, if you've answered yes to any of these then you're in the right place!
Hey, I’m Helen and my passion is to empower women both in pregnancy and in their motherhood journey.
Fitness & Yoga play a big part in my busy life as a mom to 3 young boys. I'm a Pre & Postnatal Fitness Specialist, Yoga Instructor and very soon-to-be Personal Trainer. I constantly keep my knowledge updated in the areas of women's health, fitness, and pre & postnatal corrective exercise.
I am a contributor to Dr. Sarah Duvall's world-leading women-focused corrective exercise certification for fitness and healthcare professionals, 'Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist Course', as well as many Irish media platforms. I look forward to supporting you on your Pregnancy, Birth, and Motherhood journey.

CHECK OUT THE QUESTIONS BELOW OR EMAIL ME IF YOU'VE SPECIFIC QUESTIONS.
AM I READY FOR POSTNATAL FIT?
It is so difficult to recommend an overall, generic number of weeks when you can return to exercise after having your baby. No one woman has the same recovery and healing journey. Some women might be ready at 5 weeks and others at 5 months! I'd ask myself the following questions:
- Am I feeling well within myself?
- Would I have the energy to exercise in a class?
- How are my pelvic floor and continence levels?
- Has my doctor given me clearance to return to exercise?
- How fit was I during my pregnancy?
- What kind of birth did I experience?
- Did I need any physiotherapy rehabilitation after my birth?
- Do I feel excited about returning to exercise and ready to feel strong once more?
The return to exercise guidance is 6 weeks for a vaginal birth and 10-12 weeks for a c-section birth, but these are incredibly generic.
By answering the questions above should paint a good overall picture for you. Take all of this into account, then make your decision.
