You’re cleared, now what?
Unfortunately, in the United States, there’s not a lot of pregnancy and postpartum support for women! I’m trying to change that by offering a unique, evidence based program that is designed to help women recover from childbirth and return to their desired choice of exercise with a body that’s prepared to do so. This program is appropriate and necessary for ALL pregnant and postpartum women – from Olympic athletes to beginner exercisers – from home birth to Emergency C-Section – everyone has pregnancy, childbirth and a major life transition in common. Women deserve to be supported early on in this journey.
This program is designed to progress and recover physically in a supportive, educational environment where your baby or toddler is welcome. You will learn a new breathing strategy, improve movement patterns and feel confident in exercises that work to help reduce potential symptoms or conditions such as Diastasis Recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, common aches/pain, etc. What you do (and don’t do!) during pregnancy and postpartum is key for making a quality, sustainable return to fitness, daily function and your choice of exercise.
I refer and collaborate with local Women’s Health/Pelvic Floor Physical Therapists. This program complements (most) rehab protocols.
