I have always loved sport and exercise and since being pregnant with my first child, I began to realise that I knew nothing about what exercises I could or could not do during pregnancy. I then went back to exercising very quickly after having a C-Section, with limited knowledge that I could have caused some damage. I have been a PE teacher for 11 years and have loved helping others to be passionate about exercise, health and well-being. I now want to build on that and help women understand that exercising pre and postnatally can have a massive beneficial impact on their pregnancy, their child birth as well as their physical and mental well being post-birth.
I was attracted to Sweaty Mama because it embeds all the values that I have, which is that exercise should be fun, safe and effective. It should provide an opportunity to meet like-minded people and it should not be restricted to people who can afford childcare. I love the fact that babies and children can work out with you and also learn to enjoy being active with their mum.
