Madeleine Shaw:


Working Out Postpartum

By Madeleine Shaw

Madeleine Shaw knows a thing or two about looking after yourself. After all, that's why we asked her to collaborate on a range of workout wear. Here, she combines her knowledge of fitness with her experiences as a new mum, to provide you with some personal advice for working out once your little one has arrived.

I have always loved exercising and I did miss pushing my body while pregnant. As women, we often put a lot of pressure on ourselves to go back to how we used to be, immediately after giving birth. But remember - you were pregnant for 9 months, it takes time for the body to recover.

I started off by just walking. Shay has always slept so well on me in the baby carrier so we go for a walk for 1.5 hours every day which is a great way to exercise (although there is always a coffee break in there too). I have also started going to BarreCore, a barre class which is all about strengthening the core, which is great as during pregnancy your stomach muscles stretch. 

"As women, we often put a lot of pressure on ourselves to go back to how we used to be, immediately after giving birth. But remember - you were pregnant for 9 months, it takes time for the body to recover."

I am definitely not as fit as I was and don't quite have the same energy but I love having that time in a class or walking in the fresh air to just be with myself. If you only have ten minutes to do some exercise during a nap time or before your kids come home, do some yoga - it is a full body work out, something you can do at home without any equipment and is also great for the mind.

The right workout needs the right wardrobe. Luckily, Madeleine and us have you covered. Don't forget to check out the exclusive range of active lounge wear we created together with Madeleine Shaw.
