Every delivery is different. Whether it natural or c-section, first, second or third child your body will recover differently after each and every birth.
There are now new demands on your body: reduced sleep, constant alert, picking up, carrying, lifting, pushing, feeding… your body and mind have to cope with all of these and at the same time, heal from the delivery.
Hormonal changes are still occurring whether you are breastfeeding or not and coping with everything can be overwhelming.
Here are some of the conditions that can occur during birth which can make recovery more difficult:
It is important for you to listen to your body and not push yourself back to exercise too soon and too hard as it may do more harm than good.
Having a clinical Pilates instructor is particularly helpful as we can conduct a physical assessment checking for strength, diastasis and mobility before starting you strengthening program. Therefore, your exercises are bespoke and progress as you get stronger.
Getting you back to a healthy a strong state has to be tailored to your individual needs.

Went twice to see Sophia Ermogenous for back pain. Sophia has a nice touch and explains what she is doing. Wonderful results few days after with the exercises she sent me to practice at home. Highly recommended. Michael Cable
Amazing service and experience for my newborn baby. Eglantine is extremely knowledgeable, health conscious and gentle, and I feel my little girl really benefited from her sessions. Will definitely be back! Ashley Racine
Eglantine is a brilliant Oesto. She has sorted out my chronic shoulder and jaw problems, I now see her regularly to keep me in optimal health. Eglantine will forever be my “go to” person for mine and my families health needs. Paula Felgate
Hightly recommend. Had some treatment here with Sophia, she was fantastic. What I Initially thought was a big problem was easily fixed in two sessions and she gave great follow up exercises. Christopher Phillips
Eglantine is someone I trust with my eyes closed. She is knowledgable, gentle, thorough and loves what she does. I have seen her for treatment many times over the years and I always refer friends. She never disappoints! Highly recommend. Maude Huguet
