- Prenatal Weight Gain & Postnatal Weight Loss
Prenatal Weight Gain & Postnatal Weight Loss - Pregnancy is a very special time for women, but many mothers-to-be express some concern about weight gain and body changes. Pregnancy is certainly not the time for weight loss, with an expected gain of 25-35 pounds, however women can take comfort in knowing that the weight is distributed between the infant, placenta, blood and Fluid Volume, uterus, breasts, amniotic Sac and fat Stores.
A pregnant woman does need extra calories during pregnancy, but an extra 300 per day is all that is needed and can be easily accomplished by having just 1 slice of bread with a slice of lean meat, a serving of vegetables, a piece of fruit and a glass of low-fat milk. Overall, maintaining a diet rich in whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and healthful fats can help to accomplish a healthful weight gain.
After birth a breast feeding mother will gradually lose weight if she chooses a well-balanced diet with nutrient-dense foods, even with the increased calorie intake. Foods with strong flavors may alter the flavor of breast milk for the baby. It is very important to drink plenty of water, and caffeine and alcohol should be avoided.
For those women not breast feeding, weight loss should occur at a slow, steady pace. Our pregnancy personal trainers and registered dietitian can help you gain the correct amount of weight and take it off after birth. Call us at 917-549-8998 to set up an appointment.

- Prenatal and Postpartum Stress Reduction
Prenatal and Postpartum Stress Reduction - Managing pre and postnatal stress is all about taking charge: taking charge of your thoughts, your emotions, your schedule, your environment, and the way you deal with problems. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun - plus the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on.
Pregnancy exercise and massage can be helpful for stress reduction. It can also give relief from muscle cramps, spasms, and myofascial pain, improve the outcome of labor, ease labor pain, enhance pliability of skin and underlying tissues, and provide support for the new mother with the physical and emotional strains of mothering.
To schedule a pre/post natal personal training or massage session call us at 917-549-8998.

- Abdominal Separation/Diastasis Rehabilitation
Abdominal Separation/Diastasis Rehabilitation - Pregnancy can cause abdominal separation (also called diastasis recti), a condition where the right and left sides of the rectus abdominis, the "six-pack" muscle, spreads apart at the body's midline, the linea alba. Separation occurs in response to the force of the uterus pushing against the abdominal wall, and pregnancy hormones that soften connective tissue. Separation can occur anytime in the last half of pregnancy but is most problematic after pregnancy when the abdominal wall is weak.
Abdominal separation reduces the integrity and functional strength of the abdominal wall and can aggravate lower back pain and pelvic instability. Separation in a previous pregnancy significantly increases the probability, and severity, of the condition in subsequent pregnancies. Women expecting more than one baby, very petite women, those with a pronounced sway back, or with poor abdominal muscle tone are at increased risk. Genetics also plays a big role. For some women, it simply how their bodies respond to pregnancy.
Our pre and post natal qualified Tupler Technique trainer will safely and effectively teach you how to repair your diastasis using a research based exercise program that is specifically designed for women with abdominal separation. Call us today at 917-549-8998 to set up an appointment.

- Pelvic Floor Strengthening/Prolapse Prevention
Pelvic Floor Strengthening/Prolapse Prevention - Just as it is important to keep up with general health screenings, pelvic prolapse prevention should begin early in a woman's life. Many of the actions you can take will have a positive effect on your general health. Pelvic floor strengthening exercises, better known as Kegel exercises, along with general exercise and a healthy diet are important.
When something happens to the pelvic floor, such as a perineal tear or a prolapse, the options become more limited. But if we build those muscles throughout our lives, we are more likely to avoid tearing and prolapsing, surgery and stitches. In addition to practicing Kegels, there are numerous other exercises that can help strengthen and gently stretch the pelvic floor. While these are great techniques to prepare for a vaginal birth, they also have benefits to women of all ages. Two options include perineal massage and squatting.
Our pre/post natal certified personal trainers can help you with pelvic floor strengthening and prolapse prevention. Call us today to schedule an appointment at 917-549-8998.

- Pubic Symphysis and Pelvic Pain Management
Pubic Symphysis and Pelvic Pain Management - During pregnancy the hormone relaxin is produced which can cause the pelvic bone to separate in preparation for child birth. Many times this can happen without the expectant mother even noticing but in several cases pelvic pain can be a symptom of Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction.
If you are suffering with pelvic pain during the late stages of your pregnancy, it would be advisable to mention it at your next prenatal appointment unless the level of pain increases before then. You may be recommended to perform exercises which will help in strengthening the pelvic area safely and should relieve the pain.
PSD can continue after delivery but post natal exercises like the pelvic floor exercises advised by your post natal doctor, will also help with the recovery of PSD along with returning to your natural weight.
Our prenatal certified personal trainers can help you with pubic symphysis and pelvic pain management. Call us today to schedule an appointment at 917-549-8998.
