Podcast Episode 11: Safe Exercise Guidelines Through Pregnancy, Mum Life and Getting Started with Pregnancy Active Wear Label with Rosie Dumbrell (Part 2/2)
Rosie is a physiotherapist, pre and post natal exercise specialist, yoga teacher and founder of the pregnancy activewear label Lenny Rose.
She has great depth with her own personal struggles with eating and body image and overcoming these hardships has shaped the powerful women she is today and the compassionate lens she looks through in her mission to support women to feel and function their best.
In this episode we chat about our views on the fashion, exercise and nutrition industry, our experience with miscarriage and safe guidelines for movement pre and post pregnancy. Rosie talks about how there really is no one size fits all guidelines but offers some great considerations, the benefits of different types of exercises and types of exercise to avoid during different stages pre and post pregnancy.
We touch on, where for some, exercise may be adding additional stress and work towards preventing pregnancy and how we may need to question our exercise behaviours and find a balance in movement that best serves you. This is especially important for those with a current or past history of an eating disorder or hypothalamic amenorrhea.
