Apple Fitness Plus now includes exercise for postpartum parents


After giving birth, postpartum exercise is something that should be navigated consciously and safely. Apple Fitness Plus is stepping in with a new workout program tailored to this period, called ‘Get Back to Fitness After Having a Baby’.

Apple Fitness Plus is an service built around the Apple Watch, with an existing range of workout collections. There is already a ‘Stay active during pregnancy’ collection.

Aimed at helping new parents reconnect with exercise and themselves, the new post-pregnancy collection offered by Apple is hosted by coaches who are mothers, some of whom gave birth just about a year ago.

The actual coaching takes into consideration their own experiences in tandem with advice from an OB-GYN physician. Some exercises include strength and core, including a few that focus on the pelvic floor. There are also mindful exercises based on stretching, with advice on patience and self-care for new parenthood.

Apple Fitness Plus’ new program is suitable for people who have had a C-section or vaginal delivery, offering modifications depending on active levels during pregnancy and how intensely one would like to start exercising again.

The service is priced at $9.99 a month, and can be shared with up to five family members.
