Getting back in shape and a flat stomach is as important. The Hypopressive Method allows both muscles rehabilitation and muscles toning.

Why is the Hypopressive Method so efficient for postpartum women?

Post partum period is very important for women from a gynaecologic and urology point of view as well as for posture and aesthetic.
Pregnancy with its weight gain and hormonal changes puts the female body under enormous strain. Women must rehabilitate pelvic muscles,back and abdominals in order to start exercising again in a safe manner.
After giving birth, some women will suffer from abdominal diastasis(stretching of connective tissues), which makes it difficult to start exercising again for it could worsen the symptoms. The Hypopressive Method allows a safe rehabilitation of the pelvic muscles, abdominals and toning. Other types of rehabilitation require working muscles by muscles and might be armful to the general body static.

It does, by extension, improve sexual sensation and ability for sexual pleasure thus 
contributing in a better quality of life for new mothers.

How does the Hypopressive Method or Hypopressive Gymnastics work?
The technique involves exhalation with expansion of the ribcage resulting in a negative pressure in the thoracic cavity, which elevates the diaphragm. After exhalation, you hold your breath and maintain for a few seconds, this will cause involuntary contractions from the pelvic floor muscles and abdominal wall. The method is repeated and held with different postures and variations.

Who can do it?
Any women who has given birth regardless of how long ago, any women with any of the symptoms stated above or any women wanting a slimmer waist.
You will need a trained physiotherapist to follow you but basically this method works for an amazing range of problems and symptoms.
