Pregnancy and Postpartum Coaching Sessions
Has a trainer ever told you that postpartum recovery should include “training your core” by doing a ton of sit-ups, planks and kegels?
How about these statements: “just listen to your body” and “do what you’ve always done” either during or after pregnancy?
Were you told that it’s normal after you have a baby to pee while jumping, running or any other physical activity?
There is so much misguided information out there (even if it is well intentioned), and it’s exhausting for mom’s to find good information on what to do during this important time of life.
Brooke is a Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coach. She completed her training through Brianna Battles, one of the leading educators and trainers in the field. This is awesome for our community because we have lots of moms in the area, because postpartum is forever, and because we believe it’s our responsibility as coaches to know how to guide athletes in a proactive and strategic way through this time of their life.
Women want to maintain their fitness throughout and after pregnancy and they need intelligent, individualized strategy to do so. Brooke can provide a foundational strategy of finding good postural alignment and utilizing the Piston Breath method (establishes a healthy pressure system by with the diaphragm, deep abdominal muscles and pelvic floor), and she can offer individualized programming for each athlete, depending on their circumstances.
CrossFit is not a prerequisite for learning this technique. For more information or to book a private session contact Brooke (204-823-2792).
“Continuing CrossFit throughout my pregnancy was an easy decision for me. Right from the start, the coaches provided me with individualized information and techniques that allowed me to move safely and with confidence. The support I received from everyone at CFM was a huge motivator for me to keep active. I have no doubt that the physical strength I gained from CrossFit helped get me through labour and my postpartum recovery.” – Jocelyne
“Just over a week has gone by since the delivery of baby Charlee and I can’t credit Joel, Brooke, and Lisa enough for preparing me for my endurance needed during labor and most importantly the strength postpartum to ease my recovery. Learning piston breathing at the beginning of pregnancy was a learning curve but really benefitted in the end. I would recommend and encourage anyone who is contemplating working with CrossFit Morden during pregnancy to go for it. They support and always have safe and appropriate modifications personalized to your pregnancy needs.” – Britt
