In this video, physiotherapist Alishah Merchant reviews some gentle exercise and deep core activation strategies that can safely be implemented Day 1 postpartum as part of the road to a speedy recovery.
These exercises are the first stage of exercises to be completed after delivery and the foundation of basic core work which you will build upon in the weeks after. We always recommend speaking to your trusted health professional before starting an exercise program to make sure it is safe for you.
Our physiotherapists can help you develop a program to strengthen your core after having a baby or after an injury or simply if you are weak in this area.
They will develop an individualized program for you based on your specific needs and areas of weakness.
They will give you cues and strategies so that you will know when you are doing the exercises correctly and will educate you on what to look out for so that you do not cheat or compensate.
