If you want to build back up your fitness level and intensity, build your pelvic floor too and protect it as you strengthen your core safely. On the build - many women can try too hard with some of their exercise, and cause pushing down on their pelvic floor instead of lifting up! Check in our Post Pregnancy/Exercise/Postnatal Exercise section for good ways to build your Core Foundations firmly first!

RE:Return to Sport After Pregnancy and Birth
Many women wish to commence or continue exercising during and post pregnancy. So it's important that Registered Exercise Professionals are providing an individually tailored, effective and safe exercise program.

Dianne was involved in the development of Fitness Australia's new Pregnancy and Postnatal Exercise Guidelines, working with industry experts Lisa Westlake and Dr Denise Furness.
