Why This Course?
- Pregnancy & childbirth results in tremendous changes to our core and pelvic floor.
- As pelvic health physiotherapists we hear women say everyday – “Why didn’t anyone tell me about this?” and “I wish I knew this before I gave birth?”
- We wanted to provide evidenced-based, easily accessible and affordable education to support confident and strong moms with healthy cores & pelvic floors
- Research suggests that when women receive education improvement is seen in core and pelvic floor recovery, reduced pelvic floor dysfunction, and improved quality of life for women following childbirth. (Kisner & Colby, 2018)
