Pelvic health is a topic seldom discussed with pregnant and postpartum women. If it is discussed, the most common advice is to do many (MANY) reps of kegels every day, sometimes multiple times a day.
Unfortunately, pelvic health is a lot more complicated than a blanket prescription for kegels and an “all-clear” for exercise at the 6-weeks postpartum checkup. In some cases, kegels may actually make things worse, and in most cases, other rehab exercises will do a lot more to get things functioning well again postpartum.
As trainers we need to be as knowledgeable as possible to help fill in the informational gap left by most medical systems, and help our clients heal their bodies.
If you are a fitness coach, health professional, or have interest working with moms, you are working with postnatal populations.
If you want to help moms feel as good as possible in their bodies, and their lives, the Postnatal Fitness Specialist Academy is designed to teach you key strategies and tools to ensure you’re doing so.
The Academy is open for registration from now until Monday, October 16th – one week only. It will not open again for at least 6 months.
