WELCOME TO yummymummy.FITNESS
Yummymummy.fitness provides mums with bump to baby training, revolutionising the pregnancy and postnatal experience with bespoke programming.
As a personal trainer, when I found out I was pregnant one particular concern I had was about how, if and what exercise I could still do during pregnancy. I found that there is a huge amount of fear and was told 'put your feet up' and 'you must rest' so many times! But there is more and more research that mums-to-be having an uncomplicated pregnancy should be doing the opposite, exercise is good for you and your bump.
Personally I experienced huge benefits of exercising while pregnant:
Better self esteem
No excess weight gain
A quick natural labour, 9 hours from the first early contraction to Ivy's arrival
Ivy was a healthy birthweight
I lost baby weight and recovered fast!
After speaking to other postnatal mums about their recovery experience and compromises they are making in their lives I decided that it should not be left to chance on whether you know how to do Pelvic Floor exercises correctly and whether you are living with a healed tummy or a gap in your tummy or worried about peeing yourself. Instead I founded yummymummy.fitness to help mums experience the serious benefits that appropriate exercise and nutrition can give us. We deserve to look after ourselves and be happy and live a full life.
EVERY package includes a thorough assessment and video consultation
Each programme is BESPOKE to you and lasts 4 weeks and then we review before the next 4 weeks
The training is REMOTE so you don't have to worry about CHILDCARE we will stay in contact via messages and video calls so if you need to feed your baby or have them with you for the call that is ABSOLUTELY fine.
Why this approach? Because exercise needs to be accessible for mums.

MY TRAINING DIARY
I felt pretty sick for 12 weeks and very out of breath due to increased levels of progesterone.
Key was to exercise when I could and snack
Towards the end of T1 I had adjusted to how i was feeling and managed to climb Monte Baldo
Energy was up in T2 so...
I ran Vitality 10km
I trail ran in the mountains
I was active everyday for my commute
I reduced the duration of my sessions but exercised as frequently as I could
I trained on my due date and the day before Ivy arrived
3 MONTHS POSTNATAL
I walked as much as I could in the initial stages, practiced functional pelvic floor exercises and then gradually introduced my postnatal workouts
