"The RAW team were simply brilliant!"
“I returned to Raw following my six week c-section incision check, 13kg heavier with no core strength and feeling slightly intimidated. The first 5 weeks back I was given a programme consisting of basic bodyweight exercises focusing on my core and pelvic floor muscles. No classes and no weights!
My next programme finally reintroduced a barbell (huzzah, even though it had no weight), and it was the best feeling. I also returned to some of the classes. There was no overnight 'bounce back', but consistency and accountability to my coach had meant that within 6 months I have got back to my pre pregnancy weight, and can throw some weights around again.
Each pregnancy and post partum journey is different. I needn't have been nervous coming back, the RAW team were simply brilliant, understanding the post partum process and needs of a new mum. Tom has been on hand to offer support and advice, and allow me to work at my own pace. Now more than ever it is important to be of healthy body and mind, and despite the lack of sleep, my energy levels have improved (which are so important with a newborn). I feel great, thank you RAW."
9 months partum and you can see the progress is still going strong!
