1. Intake, analysis & personalized schedule
During a pregnancy your body goes through major changes. This effects the balance in the spine and pelvis.Our priority is to train safely and respoinsibly and prevent any complaints such as pain or pelvic instability. This why, when starting at Mothers in Motion, we always start with an "intake" in which your goals are set. During this intake you will also be physically screened by one of our therapists to adjust the training schedule to your body. A kind of "MOT" for future mothers. An analysis of your muscles and joints brings to light possible points of attention. This analysis forms the base of your further training at Mothers In Motion.
By training respponsibly you should (usually) be able to actively take part in our lessons until week 40. If needed we will advise you suitable additional physiotherapeutic treatments to support your specific physical situation. These are often reimbursed by your health insurance.
2. Sport start-up: Sport instruction & personal training
In order to train safely and effectively it is essential that all exercises are performed correctly. You and your baby's safety are themost important! The sport start-up consists of two personal training sessions. During these sessions we teach you to understand and execute the most important exercises (which are also used a lot in the different group lessons). During these sessions we will use mirrors for visual feedback. A lot of attention is paid to body aligment. We also explain how the exercises work and what goals they serve.
Also after this start-up specialist guidance is always available. For questions regarding your training, specific muscles or exercises you can stop by during our daily hours of 'Training in de zaal' (During which a certified instructor is present to help). By training multiple times a week you reach the best result. In many cases future moms can continue training until one or 2 weeks until delivery, sometimes even untill week 40!
3. Prenatal ultrasound of the stomach muscles
Incorrect use of the stomach muscles during your pregnancy can cause (irreversible) damage to the abdominal wall, such as navel hernia's and diastasis. As a part of the Mothers in Motion "Complete" prenatal program we provide you with a prenatal ultrasound. During this special prenatal stomach muscle training, we use ultrasound for real-time imaging, a direct bio-feedback to give you direct insight into how you can use the abdominal muscles and how to contract them in the correct way. This will help you train and use the muscles safely and prevent damage such as diastasis. The prenatal ultrasound is a "conscious learning experience".
4. Prenatal workshops: preparing for delivery
A series of five workshops physically and mentally prepare you for your delivery and maternity period. You will get practical tips, instructions and exercises to ensure that the delivery goes as well as possible and to prevent injuries. The first workshop is best attended early in the pregnancy for optimal effect. You can start with workshops 2 - 5 around week 30 of the pregnancy. (Click here for upcoming workshop dates) Unless all participants are dutch, workshops will be given in English.
Workshop 1: Pelvic floor & abdominal muscles: How can you prevent tearing of the pelvic floor during delivery?
Workshop 2: The delivery: How can you enjoy the best delivery and save your energy?
Workshop 3: Optimal breathing: How do you breath the best now and during your delivery?
Workshop 4: Do's & Don'ts during maternity period: How do you get the best and quickest recovery?
Workshop 5: Partner class: How can your partner help you the best during your delivery?
