Mums & Bubs Rebounding
Safe, Natural and Beneficial
Rebounding is a safe, natural and highly beneficial exercise for mothers and babies before, during and after pregnancy. It can keep your body toned, fit and healthy and help you prepare for labour.
Pregnancy is highly demanding on the body. Starting your journey with a strong and healthy body is going to be highly beneficial for your health and baby’s development. It can take time for your body to build up the essential nutrients it needs to prepare for the increased requirements of pregnancy
Rebounding will massively strengthen our entire body inside and out, which is important as your baby grows and puts more demands on different areas.
Having a highly functioning lymphatic system will release toxins, help build a strong vitamin and mineral rich skeletal system to prevent osteoporosis, greatly increase your circulation and support your back.
All for the benefit and wellbeing of you and your bub.
When to Start
The first few weeks of pregnancy are a critical time in a baby’s development. This is when the neural tube that forms your baby’s brain and spinal cord develops. Some obstetricians warn pregnant women to avoid any exercise until the third trimester of their pregnancy. This is understandable when you consider regular exercise such as jogging, high impact aerobics, or weight lifting could be damaging to both baby and mother.
Rebounding however, incorporates gentle bouncing with walking or jogging on the rebounder which can increase circulation to every cell of your body including the placenta, and your growing baby.
