about gemma

 Hi, I’m Gemma! Founder of Generation Move.

I want to share with you why we at GM think movement, nutrition, and self care are key to your happiness and your family’s.

We all only have one life with one goal: to make the best of it no matter what that looks like to you.

That means our behaviours, habits and lifestyle affects the one life our children have.

We want you to be strong and fit so you can play now, and do the same for grandchildren later.

We want you to feel good, confident so that your love for life and yourself filters down to your children.

It’s difficult to do that if you are physically or mentally damaged. It’s difficult if your body has had difficulty healing. Whether that be a diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction or pain in general.

It’s time to bounce back!

WANT TO KNOW YOUR PELVIC FLOORS SUPER POWER? 🦸

It’s a bit like Mr Fantastic from the marvel film Fantastic Four.

Yeeeeesssss, it can get super stretchy but only when the time is just right!

When having a vaginal delivery it can go from blueberry 🫐 to bagel 🥯 to allow baby to come through!

Blimey!! 😱

Isn’t that cool?😎

Granted, this is an excessive load on the pelvic floor which is why we need to give it time to heal and restore - that 6 week postnatal check up ain’t gonna cut it! Sorry to break that to you. 😬

Some people get super scared that the more it stretches the more likely our pelvic floor is going to need repair and the evidence does point towards that but me being a geek found that many say the reasons are inconclusive. 🥸

In fact in 2016 one study showed that perineal stretch did not mean you were more likely to leak 🤷‍♀️

Pubmed: PMC5375164

The difference I found with studies were that some measured amount of pressure whereas others measured stretch - I’m still reading - damn it - these research papers are heavy going! 🧐

Anyway, the point is “marvel”😜 at your vaginas abilities.

Prepare your pelvic floor for pregnancy and birth and then treat it with respect afterwards with some time off & restorative movements. 🧘🏾‍♀️
Because it really did something phenomenal! 😲

So ahem, who’s still clapping at how the 🍆 can get bigger now we’ve heard this vagtastic fact? 👏 days of glory gone! Just saying.

Hey new mumma, DON’T LET ME DISTURB YOUR KEGEL BUT…

Yeahhhh, so all that kegeling you’re doing to prepare for birth…. Rest easy on that and go get yourself ice cream 🍦 cos everyone deserves ice cream. 😁

Cos you see your pelvic floor does not do the pushing! It likes to take credit, sure but shhh 🤫 it’s time for uterus to take a bow.

Your uterus does the pushing & in response the pelvic floor needs to yield, lengthen & create space. 🦚

Yes the pelvic floor needs to be strong but it also needs a full range of motion. Kegeling the shizzle out of it is gonna make it forget how to do the birthing dance 💃 damn.

So to get the pelvic floor to do it’s thing. We need to incorporate moves that ask it to shorten AND lengthen. Mmmmm happy pelvic floor 🤩

Tell me in the comments how you’ve been told to prepare your pelvic floor for birth 👇💋

WHAT WOULD YOU DO FOR YOUR V@GINA IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME? 💫

Hind sight is such a beautiful thing. When I look back at my first pregnancy I can’t believe how little I thought about my pelvic floor.

Granted I was more concerned about how on I was going to look after a baby let alone anything else. 👩🏼‍🍼

But now I know what I know. There’s so many things I would do during my pregnancy to care for my pelvic floor. 🫶

One of the biggest things I’d tell myself is to trust my instincts and that birthing on my back is not ideal. 🥺

What do you wish you knew and would go back in time to tell your pregnant self? 💭😶 Tell me in the comments 👇👇👇

WHATS THE BEST AGE TO TELL YOUR DAUGHTER ABOUT THEIR PELVIC FLOOR?

I’ve been chatting about pelvic floor basics this week.

And in the comments someone asked this question, so I though it would be good for a discussion.

I was never taught this information- either at school or from family. But I think that’s partly to do with a generational thing. It just wasn’t the done thing to talk about ones gusset!

Anyway, with my kids - if they ask me a question - I try to be as truthful as she appropriately possible. And I guess that’s personal choice.

My daughter is 8 years old and she knows the name for her body parts and what her pelvic floor does.

Granted - she’s has shouted it out as well and exclaimed to Granny that vagina is actually vulva etc etc 😳😬🤦🏼‍♀️

But I felt I owed her the truth. How about you, what’s right for you and your fam?

SEVEN HOLES DOWN BELOW!

Woahhhh 😳

Most of us are familiar with the fact that vagina owners have 3 holes to manage and care for.

Starting from the back we have:

1️⃣The anus
2️⃣The vaginal canal
3️⃣The urethra

Our pelvic floor muscles surround these holes controlling wee, poop and supporting pelvic organs amongst other jobs. 💪

But what we hardly ever hear about is 4 other tiny holes that are super important.

There are 2 skene glands and 2 bartholins glands. 😯 I first read about these from the amazing @vaginarehabdoctor and I’ve been reading about them since.

The bartholins glands are situated either side of the vaginal opening and the skenes glands are either side of the urethra (pee hole).

These tiny holes or glands secrete fluid which helps lubricate the vagina and the urethra. They important for urinary and sexual health. 🤩

The skene glands are also thought to have anti microbial properties and help prevent UTI’s 🦠

How clever! 🎓

Now, what I wanted to find out was if movement played a factor in the health of these glands. 🧐 As usual it’s a poorly researched subject or I was just pants at navigating Google scholar. 🩲

What we do know is that muscles help with blood flow and lymph nodes. And in the vaginas case blood flow helps with lubrication. But for muscles to do their job they need to be mobile & have movement. Spoiler alert 🚨:Tightness does not allow great blood flow.

❓What muscle is near the vagina and it’s wondrous glands? Come on now people - I hope you’ve been paying attention…

🙋‍♀️The pelvic floor. Boom 💥 Another reason why tightness was so 80’s (well actually it should never be in vogue) and mobility, responsiveness and movement wins the day again. 🏆

PELVIC FLOOR INGREDIENTS - WHATS YOUR MAGIC SAUCE?

Just one ingredient for your pelvic floor is often not enough.

Just kegels?
Just surgery?
Just live with it?

They’re not going to make a dish dishy!

Pelvic floor recovery needs so many more things on the menu than a focus on the pelvic floor itself.

How about adding:

👏how you carry out daily tasks,
😎how you move your body,
👏how you feel about your body,
😎How you breathe
👏 How you manage pressure
😎what traumas has it been through,
👏whether you feel you deserve care,
😎can you let care & nourishment feed your body yet or
👏is there stress you need to let go of?

Pelvic floor recovery is a whole body & mind thing. Our pelvic floor is the centre of our body and often the centre of our soul. 🫶

So everyone’s magic sauce is different. 🪄🥫

Part of my magic sauce was ditching bounce back culture - I allowed myself to stop HIIT & go slow to allow my pelvic floor to catch up. I took that ingredient out and it made exercise taste soooo much better and my pelvic floor loved me back 😍

What do you think your magic sauce is? 🪄😘 Tell me in the comments 👇

TIME TO GET SOME BALANCE BACK…

I made or balanced this little pebble statue (what do you call these?) myself!

And after a long heave on the socials I’m going to take a break.

You may or may not know that I launched my revamped pelvic floor course last week and doing that as a small business is INTENSE!

So it’s break time for me and to focus on getting my new Pelvic Floor Reconnect members started on their recovery journey.

See you all in a couple of weeks.

Toodles! 👋

DO YOU FEEL LOST WAITING FOR YOUR NEXT PELVIC FLOOR APPT?

A client said to me at the end of her training sessions that she was so glad she signed up to Pelvic Floor Reconnect. 🥳

She had experienced a prolapse and it came as such a hit and anxiety set in. 😣

In her words she said if it hadn’t been for this course and the personal training sessions she would have been left bumbling along, lost as to what to do or what not to do. 😔

Her appointments with her physio were sparse and hard to come by and the info was just so kegels for now. 🫤

🌷You don’t have to wait for someone else to take action for your pelvic floor.

🌷You can do something great for your body. Learn the tools I give you in Pelvic Floor Reconnect and create the best healing environment you can for your pelvic floor.
