Important Medical Information regarding Parent & Baby Yoga

Before purchasing a session ticket, guests must read the following information in regards to medical requirements: If the parent had a caesarean birth and has not passed 10 weeks since giving birth, they are unable to join the active part of the session. They may join in with the nursery rhymes, baby yoga and baby massage but must not participate with the yoga poses. All parents have the option of choosing which parts of the session they join in with and which they would rather sit and watch or attend to baby.
It is important to be aware of post natal conditions which may arise:

  1. Diastasis Recti - The separation of the two parts of the rectus abdominal muscle, which has become stretched and weakened during birth. If a parent believes they have this and have soreness around their abdominal area, they should avoid any opening and stretching movements such as opening the arms back or reaching high as this will put pressure on their stomach. Breathing exercises are fine to do as are all of the other elements: warm up, baby yoga, baby massage, rhymes, relaxation. 
  2. Pelvic Girdle Pain also known as Symphsis Pubic Dysfunction (SPD) - Parents may still feel pain in the front of their pelvis or inner thigh. If a parent has this, advise them to keep their feet and legs close together for all the postures and movements. Avoid squatting and the Butterfly Pose.

It is extremely important that you have had consent from their doctor to exercise. If YES you may join the session but if NO we must advise, for your own safety, that this activity is not suitable. However, please speak to the team on site for alternative activities for you and your child.
