Women’s Health & Fitness

Women’s health pre-pregnancy, post pregnancy, between pregnancies and beyond, is easily forgotten under a mass of nappies, cooking, working and tending to others in your family. If you don’t look after yourself, your long term health can be detrimentally affected and it really doesn’t need to be.  Keeping fit, conditioned and well-nourished enhances happiness and coping, at any stage in your life. It’s not just about your pelvis, it’s activating, conditioning and strengthening the rest of your body too.

 

Antenatal and baby is proud to be collaborating with excellent professionals who can help you to achieve a healthier, happier and fitter being. LVW physiotherapy http://lvwphysiobrussels.com/  supports the continuing health of women before and  after pregnancies and for the rest of your lives. Living in harmony with balance, control and strength will help to combat degenerative issues later in life.
