Postpartum Physical Recovery 10am-12pm
June 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This free class will discuss ways to heal and get your body back after your baby is born and is intended for women during pregnancy and the postnatal period. Ideally this class would be taken during pregnancy to prepare for the postnatal period; however, the information is very beneficial whether you are early postnatal or even years postnatal.
Kegels and the pelvic floor: How to really perform kegels to improve pelvic floor muscle tone and know if you’re doing them correctly (and are they even appropriate?)
Diastasis recti and abdominal exercises: How to correct abdominal separation and what abdominal exercises are safe to begin after birth to regain strength
Posture and body mechanics: Correct positioning for nursing, carrying and lifting your baby to prevent injury or pain
Scar tissue management: How to take care of perineal or cesarean scar tissue to prevent complications like adhesions or tightness
Sex after birth: What’s normal and what to do if you have discomfort
Recommended postnatal products: Learn about belly bands, breastfeeding pillows, baby carriers, lubrication, and vaginal weights for moms
Address any questions: Ask any questions regarding pain, discomfort, leaking, sex, exercise or anything else about the postnatal period (Back, pubic bone, tailbone pain, urinary incontinence, pelvic pressure/prolapse, etc.)
Learn how to take care of your body to keep you healthy and strong when your baby arrives!
