Involution at Feelgoodstudio

The invo­lu­tion process is dif­fer­ent from one woman to the next – depend­ing on age and phys­i­cal con­di­tion, includ­ing the con­di­tion of con­nec­tive tis­sues, mus­cles and bones. Invo­lu­tion is influ­enced by hor­mones, and the body quite lit­er­al­ly recedes inwards imme­di­ate­ly after the birth.

The mother’s post­na­tal recov­ery peri­od is of vital impor­tance. Make sure that the days fol­low­ing the birth are full of peace and care so that you can soon regain your strength. You are wel­come to come and par­tic­i­pate in our invo­lu­tion groups around 4–6 weeks fol­low­ing the birth. If you are able to come by your­self, you will be able to devote your full atten­tion to your­self and your exer­cis­es. How­ev­er, if you’d like to bring your baby, we’ll be delight­ed to wel­come you both.

The invo­lu­tion ses­sions focus on help­ing you to find your­self in your old-new body, both as a moth­er and as a woman. We pro­vide you with a range of gen­tle yet effec­tive exer­cis­es that restore the mus­cu­lar bal­ance between the abdom­i­nal and pelvic floor mus­cles. The goal of these invo­lu­tion exer­cis­es is to restore a cer­tain firm­ness to the abdom­i­nal wall and pelvic floor. The abdom­i­nal mus­cles are over­stretched dur­ing preg­nan­cy, while the pelvic floor mus­cles are over­stretched dur­ing birth (and thus require gen­tle, strength­en­ing exer­cis­es, even fol­low­ing a Cae­sare­an). Over­stretch­ing means weak­en­ing, mak­ing gen­tle restora­tion of healthy mus­cu­lar ten­sion so impor­tant – includ­ing for your pos­ture. Your entire spine will thank you. We enjoy our prac­tice, and nev­er push too far.

These groups also leave enough space for ques­tions, and we share our chal­lenges, expe­ri­ences, strengths and weak­ness­es so that we can learn from one anoth­er — from Mama to Mama.

All ses­sions can be booked nor­mal­ly in a block of 5 or 10, or using time cards. The ses­sion timetable or online reg­is­tra­tion can be found here.

As a woman, you are our pri­or­i­ty: we look for­ward to wel­com­ing all Mamas!
