The Price of the class is $150 (A sliding scale available for those who qualify based on income and family size.)
This evidence-based class is expertly designed for women who have recently given birth. Participants will receive an evaluation by a Doctor of Physical Therapy specializing in the pregnant and postpartum woman. This will provide insight into each participant’s medical history, labor and delivery, and individual muscle and joint performance. After individual evaluations are completed, participants will complete 3 weekly group-based classes designed to help them re-connect with their breath, abdominal muscles, and pelvic floor. Classes will be tailored to the participants with individual focus given to each woman’s rehabilitation and recovery. Participants will learn how to properly engage their deep abdominal muscles and pelvic floor to prevent and resolve pain and incontinence. Participants will regain confidence in their movement and bodies to bridge the gap between childbirth and return to work, fitness, and parenting.
Please note :
This 4-week class is ideal for women 3 weeks to 12 weeks postpartum, but any woman who has given birth is welcome. Non-crawling babies are welcome to attend.
This class is limited to 4 participants. Once the class is full, you can choose to be put on a wait list or join the next class series. This class will be offered monthly.
