My name is Keri and I am the founder of Fit and Healthy Mums, I enjoyed exercising prior to the birth of my children, using the gym, running and attending various classes including Zumba and Spin.
Once pregnant I found the advice and information conflicting and confusing. I found myself not exercising as much as I wanted to as over researching online, I found lots of ‘not recommended’ in pregnancy so subsequently reduced my activity levels ‘just in case’.
I have since gone on to have 2 more children and enjoyed active pregnancies with both, enjoying all the benefits of exercise in both the pre and postnatal stages.
With 3 children, I know only too well how challenging it is to find time for yourself, but exercise was always my stress reliever, something I had enjoyed for many years.
After a career break from Finance Marketing I decided to retrain as a Fitness Instructor, specialising in Pre and Postnatal Fitness.
I wanted to offer the correct help, advice and guidance to women in a non-judgemental environment. I also understood how important the social aspect of pregnancy and the postnatal period is, so making sure all my ladies have a chance to catch up with each other in classes is really important.
I am always on the look out for new ways to help clients and have gone on to train in the specialist areas of abdominal separation and pelvic floor recovery.
