This class will discuss ways to 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 still beneficial whether you are early postnatal or even years postnatal. (Babies may attend)

Diastasis recti and abdominal exercises: Familiarize yourself with how to correct abdominal separation and learn safe abdominal exercises to begin after birth to regain strength
Posture and body mechanics: Practice correct positioning for nursing, carrying and lifting your baby to prevent injury or pain
Scar tissue management: Take care of perineal or Cesarean scar tissue to prevent complications like adhesions or tightness
Sex after birth: Discuss what is normal and what to do if you have discomfort
Postnatal pain, incontinence and complications: Having a baby can increase the risk of back pain, pelvic or tailbone pain, urinary incontinence, and other conditions. Learn how to prevent and treat any complications and ask any questions regarding pain, discomfort, leaking, sex, exercise, or anything else about the postnatal period.
