This video shows one part of the 6 week postpartum check that Clare Bourne carried out with Binky. They go through a series of exercises to give the green light for Binky to start some core exercises.
In this video Clare checks Binky doing a double table top position, a knee hover, and full plank and a side plank. At each stage Clare is checking Binky’s tummy to make sure she is ready for these exercises. Please note that not everyone is ready for these at 6 weeks postpartum and before carrying out these exercises Clare had done a full body check, assessing her abdominal muscles and pelvic floor.
Everyone is different, finding what is right for you is key and this is where a physiotherapist can help guide you in the best recovery.
