Aequus Postpartum System

The mother’s body during this period needs help, a physical training that proposes to cover the need to take care of her body and also provide her with an energy contribution. With the pelvic floor physiotherapist and pregnant women, we will evaluate if it starts with Hypopressive Abdominal Gymnastics or by “Pilates” Postpartum.

If mothers stop listening to their bodies during this time, bad postures and lack of mobility are accentuated by providing pain, daily discomfort, or perhaps major problems in the future.

Many times we have heard “after childbirth my body is not the same”. Of course, it will be because throughout our lives the body is adding experiences and childbirth is one of them. But mothers after childbirth should not allow themselves to worsen their health.

The pains are symptoms, they transmit the state of our muscles, the general state of the body. Therefore they must return to the movement and allow him to incorporate more muscle strengthening. They should not think about the aesthetics of the body if not the internal aesthetics of the muscular structures, structures that sustain and mobilize in everyday life. For 11 years we have been teaching classes to meet the needs of women after childbirth.

How is the mother’s body:

The mother can be very tired after the birth. Sore or upset And this state may increase in the first weeks after delivery.

In postpartum there is a very intense first moment that is the first 40 days after delivery where the body is reorganized, where the mother should be monitored for bleeding or other problems. You should not have sex, exercise or physical activities very demanding.

There is also postpartum depression that is caused by the new hormonal change that is established during this period. Emotionally, the mother is weak and frail, as is her body.

After the quarantine, the post-partum continues although some do not recognize it as such. The hormonal and physical change continues, there are emotional ups and downs, and fatigue is made increasingly by the demands of motherhood. This second part of the postpartum can continue until the year or year and a half after the birth.

Muscularly the body is adding more bad postures by the accumulated fatigue of sleepless nights, weight gain and holding the baby at every moment, breastfeeding, and the weight of the bags that add up in the transfers. The body is weak and adds more work than ever. It is very important for them that the body of the mother has developed body awareness and physical training before and during pregnancy.

Affected muscles

Poor postpartum posture is the result of an imbalance. Weakness of the abdominal musculature to support the spine, causing change in the shoulder girdle, dorsal and lumbar spine, pelvis and legs.

The muscles that are generally affected by postpartum are:

  • Abdominal muscles
  • Lumbar square
  • Pelvic floor
  • Erectors of the dorsal column
  • Pectorals
  • Serratus
