The MAMAWELL Method: Postpartum Edition

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The MAMAWELL Method: Postnatal Edition is a specialised programme for the postpartum body, promoting increased energy, fitness and strength whilst being mindful of the adaptations the body makes throughout pregnancy and childbirth. Easy to follow, informative and effective: The MAMAWELL Method empowers women who have become mothers to exercise in the most beneficial way for their body.

 

The MAMAWELL Method isn’t about added pressure of getting back in to your pre-pregnancy jeans in record time, but is about finding energy, confidence and balance during what is a physically and emotionally intense time. Regularly fitting in a good workout is so beneficial both mentally and physically and aligns with NHS England’s advice on postnatal depression that exercising regularly “has been shown to help boost mood in people with mild depression”.

Safety of the postpartum body is of the utmost importance, and every exercise has been developed by postnatal specialist trainers. The MAMAWELL Method introduces cardio and strength circuits in every session as a way to challenge the body safely, increase fitness and release mood-enhancing endorphins. The MAMAWELL Method is suitable to start as soon as you have been cleared by your GP for exercise. However, it can be started at any stage of your life, whether a mother or not.

 

HOW MANY WORKOUTS?

8 X full length, real-time 40min workouts, 1 slow flow. Programme designed to be repeated to gain strength, fitness & stability. Workouts also available in shorter format for when you have less time.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

All workouts are designed to do at home with minimum equipment. You will need:

  • An exercise mat 

  • A 2m long resistance band - go for strong resistance when purchasing, or start on a medium resistance and increase as you work through the videos.

  • A short circular looped resistance band - go for strong or very strong resistance.

 

Bands are available in the MAMAWELL Shop

 

WHAT ABOUT MUSIC?

You will notice there’s no soundtrack playing in the background of the MAMAWELL Method. We’re all different, and musical choice is so personal, so we decided to let you choose your own. Depending on mood, energy levels or how much sleep you’ve had, your music choice will differ day to day. Some people love to listen to podcasts, some the radio. And sometimes you may just want a bit of peace and quiet with no music at all.
