First Steps for you and your baby
Hi I’m Goldie a qualified Personal Trainer and Pilates Fitness Instructor, who specialises in pre & postnatal exercise and also a mum to Willow and Ziggy. I was a triathlon coach in Sydney since and have competed in various triathlon events from ironman to sprint distances since 2004. In 2012-20014, I coached running and swimming for Can Too whose participants raise money to support young, Australian researchers through Cure Cancer Australia.
During my pregnancy, I exercised and a previous running injury returned, Pubic Symphysis Dysfunction (PSD). Due to this pain, I was induced prior to my due date and had an emergency caesarean. This pain continued after pregnancy.
With the arrival of my first baby I was unaware by how long it was really going to take to recover and how much time Willow would consume. Whilst having her was the most amazing thing in the world, pregnancy can drastically change your body. I never imagined how hard it would be to get back my pre-baby shape back. I realised there wasn’t a lot of information on what were the ‘correct’ exercises to perform, after either a caesarean or natural birth.
