Don’t want to leak urine when you cough, sneeze, jump, or exercise? Want to feel stronger in your core? Or just simply want to know some gentle exercises to help your body heal? This course is for you! Childbirth is one of the only major medical occurrences that doesn’t automatically receive a referral for therapy. This course is geared for women in their 2nd trimester until 6 months postpartum but is open to anyone who has had a baby – once postpartum, always postpartum!

In this course, you will learn how to re-engage your diaphragm, core, and pelvic floor to work optimally together, gentle exercises to safely strengthen your core and pelvic floor, and strategies to reduce pelvic floor dysfunction during the postpartum period.

A partner is not required for this course and you are welcome to bring your newborn along if necessary. Please wear clothes you feel comfortable moving around in.

This course does not replace individualized medical care / advice. It is general information and if more individualized care is needed you will be required to schedule an appointment with your provider or physical/occupational therapist.

If you are looking for a more advanced class catered to weightlifting, running, body-pump style workout, etc., coming soon is our “Postpartum 2: Return to Exercise…It’s just what you need to return to higher level activity!” Watch this site for more information.
