My “Dream” Client
One of the amazing things about my job is I get to not only watch my client’s transform, but I also get to share and be a part of the journey as their family grows. And whether it’s watching their belly grow week by week during pregnancy or noticing the glimmer in their eyes as they fit into those sexy jeans again, I am constantly in awe and grateful for being allowed to be a part of it all.
But just when I didn’t think it could get any better, my “dream” came true! One of the most inspiring clients I have had the honour of training, just confided in me that she’s pregnant. Squeeeee!!
As the mother of two very sweet and playful boys (let’s call her Sandra), I observe how well she connects and that she is one of “those” women who were just born to have kids. So after almost a year of training, we tells me that she’s “thinking” of having a third, but of course my first thought is – “hell ya!”. If anyone should have more, it’s her.
So I am proudly presenting Sandra; just a few weeks pregnant (as it hasn’t even been confirmed by a blood test yet) and on a mission to make this the healthiest and strongest pregnancy yet!
However, didn’t tell you this; after a c-section and a very eventful v-back, Sandra was left with a stage 2 uterine prolapse but had no symptoms. Yep, you heard correct. When we first met, she also had a 3 finger diastasis that has since closed with a lot of hard work and common sense. She’s open and completely supportive of putting the work in to get the results.
So I bet you’re wondering why I am so excited? Well, once you have helped someone rehab a condition that was caused by the very thing that they are going back to, it becomes a challenge of sorts. My ideal or “dream” client is someone who is newly pregnant, motivated and willing to work hard to stay strong, maintain a healthy, pain free pregnancy and “hopefully” avoid a diastasis all together.
Wouldn’t that be cool? I’m so excited!!
Rest assured I will make sure she follows the 5 Do’s of Pregnancy and the 5 Don’ts of Pregnancy while continuing to build an even stronger foundation to help her carry another baby (I’m hoping for a girl, myself).
Be sure to stay tuned as I will post regularly on her progress and let you know how Sandra is doing. But let’s also keep our expectations realistic. She’s pregnant remember and with that comes hormones, mood swings and all the lovely things that we tend to forget until we get knocked up again.
Having said that, out last appointment was cancelled as a sleepless night coupled with 1st trimester exhaustion force her to choose rest over squats and lunges. And that’s ok….we’ll get back at it at our next session.
Just you watch!
