I am a pelvic health physical therapist who seen numerous women struggle with knowing what to do to prepare their body for birth or how to recover.  

 

I admit, I struggled with the birth of my first child. Despite reading the books and going to several different birthing classes, the information I got was incohesive and often contradictory, I didn't have access to the best birth team, and I ended up unhappy with that birth experience.

But that all changed with my second birth! After helping women have the birth they wanted, helping them have a healthy and fit body and quick recovery, I was able to use what I was teaching my patients. I prepared my body, mind, and birth team, and had a completely different, wonderful experience with the birth of my second child!

You can have an amazing experience too.

Did You Know?

-  Up to 85% of first time moms suffer from perineal trauma during birth

-  31.9% of women have cesarean births in the US (the World Health Organization

    recommends 10-15%)

-  Up to 66% of women have diastasis in their 3rd trimester

-  Over 50% of women still have diastasis 8 weeks postpartum

-  72% of laboring women in the US use an epidural or spinal analgesia, which

    increases the duration of labor by over 2 hours and is associated with greater

    tearing, need for cesarean, and use of instrument assisted delivery

-  Stress during pregnancy is associated with higher rates of preterm birth and

    low birth weight

Many women are sure which exercise are safe in pregnancy and stop working out.
