“Why did no one tell me this when I was pregnant?” is something we often hear from new moms. During pregnancy, women do a lot to prepare for baby’s arrival, but many overlook the importance of preparing the pelvic floor muscles for pregnancy and birth. Then, after delivery, lots of new moms are surprised not only to experience issues like incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse or diastasis recti (abdominal separation), but also to find out that they could have prevented them!
Join Rachel Carlson PT, DPT – a BirthFIT Professional – for our upcoming workshop to learn why pelvic health is so important when it comes to recovering from childbirth and returning to exercise and functional movement postpartum. Our experienced physical therapist will share information about:
• The major changes that the pelvic floor undergoes during pregnancy, labor and delivery
• How your pelvic floor and core are essential for childbirth and function with a new baby
• Specific pregancy-safe exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor and core muscles
1:30-2:30PM at Optimal Health Chiropractic & Physical Therapy in Egg Harbor Township, NJ.
Wednesday and Fridays starting on 10/16 for 4 weeks. Introductory course is a total of 6 weeks!
