The reasons behind starting Peak Pregnancy DSC_7932 copy

Where do I start!!!...  My experience working within Fertility Clinics has highlighted the need for women with fertility concerns, in particular PCOS, who are seeking information on natural ways to improve their fertility in conjunction to seeking medical treatment. The power of exercise and healthy eating on fertility and PCOS is unbelievable! but the message I'm hearing from my clients are that they are unsure of what exercise and what foods will best benefit their condition.

Over the years I have had many women voice to me their enthusiasm to continue exercising during pregnancy, as well as wanting to re introduce exercise after their pregnancy but are unsure what exercise is safe or suitable for them. The same uncertainty surrounds nutrition, many women are unsure what foods they should be eating and how much they should be eating. The common words I hear from women are, "I just don't trust personal trainers or fitness instructors who don't have adequate knowledge to safely work with pregnant women as well as women who have recently given birth" The majority of individuals employed within the fitness industry are unsure of what exercise is safe and appropriate for women before, during or after pregnancy. After extensive market research talking with pregnant women and new mothers it became apparent that there was a niche that was not being filled. Women are after someone who they can trust to provide them with safe and suitable exercise and nutritional information during this sensitive period.

Unfortunately, I have witnessed horrific injuries and shocking outcomes as a consequence of women receiving misinformation and advice from personal trainers or others in the fitness industry that just don’t have adequate knowledge of how to safely modify programs for caesarean or natural deliveries, breastfeeding, weakened abdominal muscles and pelvic floor, the ever changing demands of pregnancy, and how exercise and nutrition can help regulate the female reproductive cycle in those who are having difficulty conceiving.

For the reasons mentioned above I finally decided to take the plunge and combine my passion of midwifery, nursing, fitness and nutrition and create a team to work personally with women through their pregnancy journey.  I decided to run the programs online and provide women unlimited online support, coaching and advice. Why online? because this means women have the flexibility to exercise anytime, anywhere, we fit into their lifestyle! Women don't have to have a gym member or fork out money for personal training sessions. Best of all our online system teaches a sustainable, maintainable lifestyle change which women can continue living for the rest of their lives.

So, let me introduce to you Peak Pregnancy, a business built on passion, love, sweat and tears. Our team is dedicated to providing a safe and reliable personal training service, coaching, support and advice to women just like you.
