    Dealing with the Effects of Pregnancy & PostNatal Issues

In this second module we take a quick trip back to Pregnancy to look at the issues that started there and continued on into the PostNatal period, as well as issues that start in the PostNatal period. This is important because the effects of these issues affect a mother’s ability to exercise. Subsequently, we must look at how to resolve these issues in an effort to achieve muscle imbalance.

  • Learn about the body's changes during Pregnancy
  • Understand how these Pregnancy-induced changes affect new motherhood
  • Minimize the magnitude of the 'Pregnancy effect'
  • Help Moms who donly sleep a couple of hours a night
  • Provide a social experience for isolated Moms to connect in
  • Balance muscle use to offset the postural changes assoicated in early motherhood

    Planning the Class

In this third module we will discuss music selection, how to generate appropriate movements and then put them together into a flow of choreography. As you can imagine, this becomes a little trickier when you are using only one or no hands! We will then look at buoyancy and the effects of water resistance which will help us select the appropriate water depth at which to work. The temperature of the water becomes an issue for some babies, so it also needs to be discussed.

  • Use the Elements of Variety to generate appropriate movements
  • Flow the movements into fun and easy choreography
  • Incorporate Baby into every exercise
  • Use the physical properties of water to make exercises harder or easier
  • Adapt the class and clothing for cooler or warmer water
  • Work at the best water depth for each individual
