We enjoyed a great training afternoon last week with Ali Burlingham. Founder of Women's Wellbeing and a Holistic Core Restore Coach. Learning about pre and postnatal physical, anatomical and emotional changes and how we can help mums to be!
A bit about Ali:
" Having worked in the pregnancy and postnatal industry for the past five years I took the opportunity in 2018 to build my own business, centred around women’s health.
My own pregnancy journey to motherhood was a steep learning curve but one I thrived in, so much so that my interest in pregnancy, birthing and motherhood grew. Combining the experience of having three children, my own professional expertise and passion for education this naturally developed into a career centred around women.
I am passionate about educating women about their bodies, capabilities and choices throughout the main stages of their lives – pregnancy, postnatal (you are always postnatal after a baby!) menopause and beyond.
I teach KGH Hypnobirthing ® classes either 1-2-1 or in a group, as well as refresher courses for those that have experienced this incredible journey before. Alongside this I am a Holistic Core Restore ® coach and offer Everywoman Courses again 1-2-1 or in a group. My work is based in North Somerset and South Bristol.
I will always be happy to give you advice or signpost you to other professionals that I recommend and work with if that is the most appropriate next step. So please feel free to contact me via the link on FaceBook or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org"
We enjoyed refreshing our education on the trimesters - including the new addition of the fourth trimester! It was interesting to discuss the various changes the body and mind go through to accommodate the growing baby. We learnt various techniques and several factors to consider when treating pregnant ladies. Lastly, we learnt that there is a huge network of people to help our understanding of women's health.
