Episode One is all about that first step on the parenting journey - pregnancy. This is a time when many women feel like they are in unfamiliar territory. This episode features two experts in their fields.
- Kate Di Prima is an accredited practising dietician with 21 years experience. Kate has authored numerous books and is a spokesperson for the Dieticians Association of Australia.
- Paula Hindle has been working as a women's health physio for 9 years and runs Yummy Mummy Physio, an obstetrics physiotherapy clinic.
Brad and Kate discuss foods that pregnant women should avoid, and how to prepare food to prevent listeria infection, which could harm your baby. Weight gain and gestational diabetes during pregnancy are also explained, plus how much extra should a woman eat while pregnant? They also consider what to eat at birth and where mums can get dietary advice.
Brad and Paula consider the benefits of exercise during pregnancy and what intensity pregnant mums should achieve. Should you continue your workouts through-out, or is stopping completely a better option? When should you restart exercise after birth? Pregnancy exercises including (the very important) pelvic floor exercises, are discussed. Plus, how does recovery differ after a caesarean?
Cat, one of the Bub Hub team who represents our forum members, asks Paula and Kate a number of questions. Paula and Kate give insights on topics such as dietary supplements and what to eat to reach the recommended intake for various key vitamins, exercise restrictions for very fit women, eating raw salads, when to return to sport after birth, and how often a person should eat during pregnancy, among other things.See all Bub Hub Club episodes
