How we support you Postpartum
Is DediKate GLOW right for you?
Hear from some of our members what they thought about DediKate GLOW and our postpartum workouts and how it has helped them through their postpartum journey!
"I signed up to GLOW and told myself I would commit to it and do it for my long-term health. I also booked an appointment with a Pelvic Health Physio had my initial appointment in the first week of the challenge which confirmed that my pelvic floor strength was lacking.
8 weeks later and I am so proud of myself for actually completing the challenge, but more so for how far I have come and how much better I feel physically. When I did the testing at the start of the challenge, I had no idea what kind of tension I was looking for, but 8 weeks later, I definitely feel that tension!! Also I thought my separation wasn't bad at all at the start (which it wasn't...maybe 2cm) but wow, it's hardly even there now. I feel stronger and fitter and as a result, I'm happier and nicer to be around." - Kate Rankin
"I was sooo happy to stumble across you after my second baby. I knew I wanted something different when it came to getting back into fitness. I also wanted something for myself I could take control of as 2 kids run the show most of the time! I really enjoyed learning more about my core and pelvic floor and how important they are to strengthen before high intensity workouts can be started. I especially loved the Sculpt sessions, I have not regularly used weights and now I just love how I feel after using them and can see how important it is to be strong before ‘fit’." - Latesha Miller
"I am SO happy I found DediKate! It has helped me re-evaluate my goals, accept that it's okay to do a 'quick' workout and understand just how important it is to make time for myself. The bonus is, Leila thinks it is hilarious watching Mum workout in the lounge and spends the entire time giggling at me. I also love knowing that when I go back to work, I will still be able to make time for myself." - Annie Rurawhe
"Glow! Exactly what I needed to help me look after myself after having my second baby, six years apart. I forgot the toll babies have on one's' life, mentally and physically. Glow & DediKate provides a space where I can work out whenever it suits me. Following the Glow program took the guesswork out of working out and it was great to have expert advice to ensure I could get back into working out safely." - Fiona Dubignon
I’ve been apart of the DediKate community for a few years now. I’m so grateful to the DediKate team offering pregnancy & postpartum workouts.
The variety of postpartum exercises makes it so enjoyable to workout at home with my cheer squad! I’ve never been great at self motivating but with the DediKate team you don’t feel like you’re working out alone!
I am loving the postpartum exercises and now the meditation on DediKate. Exactly what I was needing post baby to fit into my busy lifestyle.
I don’t think you’ll ever truly know just how much DediKate has helped me through my postpartum depression and anxiety post baby number 2. I wish I had DediKate after I had my first child because it really has made a difference with managing my postpartum this time around.
After having my daughter I felt sluggish, missed the energy I had beforehand and craved something to do for me. DediKate gave me both the mental and physical strength and self satisfaction I needed.
It felt amazing to know I was exercising alongside other mums with their bubs!
