Walking with the pram? That's Pram-ercise!

Congratulations! You've mastered pregnancy, birth and hopefully remembered to put clean underwear on this morning!

In the midst of all that you've found time to exercise as well?! Super-mum!

Walking with the pram is classed as an ADL and it is one of the most highly recommended forms of exercise for mum's.

0 - 8 weeks Postnatal

Mild, non impact exercise such as walking with the buggy for 20 to 30 minutes is perfect for postnatal mum's in the first 6 weeks. Do this at least 3 times a week

8 weeks and onward Postnatal

Try to increase the speed, length and frequency of walks. 30 minutes each day, 5 times a week.

Remember:

Always pay attention to correct handle height - your arms should be as close to a 90 degree angle as possible.

Posture - stand tall, shoulders relaxed, draw that belly button to the spine.

Getting out and about in the fresh air (sunshine or not!) is good for your physical AND mental health.
