About the event
Postpartum is a time of great change. As a mother, your body will undergo incredible transformations after giving birth and it can sometimes feel pretty overwhelming -- especially if you don't understand the changes that are occurring inside your body and how to support healing.
While many women are considered to have physically recovered from birth after six weeks, that doesn’t mean your body has completely healed and is ready to start getting back to "normal" activity and exercise before you were pregnant. After all, it took you nine months to grow your baby, so you can expect it to take at least that long for your body to go back to “normal.”
During the postpartum period, many women will experience pelvic pain, leakage, diastasis, discomfort during intercourse, weak core, hips, and back, and mood swings, and in many cases, if left unaddressed, these issues can carry for months or even years.
The best way to help your body heal and recover postpartum is to be informed and educated about what's going on inside your body and how you can optimize your healing. Not only for you the mama, but for your little one as well. After all, a healthy and happy mama means a healthy and happy baby.
The workshop will be led by Pelvic Floor Physio Therapist Pavla Skopalova, co-founder of Mint Therapy, and a Certified Postnatal Fitness Specialist Chantelle Tuma, founder of Mothergood.
During our 90 minute workshop we will cover:
- The changes that happen physiologically inside a woman's body after birth
- How to promote healing at home
- Different issues and dysfunctions that can occur after birth
- How to opttimize healing at home
- When to seek support for postpartum dysfunctions
- How to know when your body is healed properly and ready for exercise
- How to safely return to exercise postpartum
- What is the role of a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist and Postnatal Fitness Specilaist and how they can support you
Feel free to bring your little one along to the workshop -- see you there mama!
