I get you. I truly get you. After having my first baby I remember feeling that “things” just weren’t the same. That something felt different. I grew up thinking that leaking after becoming a mom was “normal” and it was just something I would have to live with. Then I had another baby and things seemed to get worse. I couldn’t cough or sneeze without having to change my pants. I had constant back pain and aches that I thought was just related to always carrying a toddler and a baby around. I didn’t feel like myself and I knew that there had to be something out there that could make me “me” again. I started to see a pelvic floor physio and was amazed with the improvements to my body.
I also started to seek more information online and it was around the same time that my friend Samantha was really gearing up with her team at Bellies Inc. I soaked up everything I could which lead me to becoming a Bellies Inc. Trainer and to help other moms understand that what you may be experiencing is “common” but it is NOT “normal”
Are you/Do you……
*Feeling disconnected from your body? Everything seems to have changed since having a baby and your health care provider hasn’t really asked or maybe brushed it off as “you are a mom now?”
*Maybe you experience some leakage (a little once and a while, or a lot)?
*Have a feeling of heaviness “down there”?
*Experience back pain/aches?
*Having painful intercourse or even pelvic pain without intercourse?
*Recovering from a vaginal or caesarean birth and are ready to really train your body from the INSIDE out? You DID carry a baby for 9+ months!
*Feel urgency to go to the bathroom and have a challenging time “holding” it?
Did you know……
*That planks, crunches and “ab exercises” can make your entire core weaker and not stronger if you aren’t RETRAINING and RE-CONNECTING your brain and core muscles first? Yep! If you are heading out after childbirth and jumping into those planks you may want to re-think!
*If your core is not FUNCTIONAL you are going to be hard at work with no results (or negative results!) You need specific exercises postpartum (and beyond!) to RE-TRAIN your core before you start to once again train it!
*That you need to re-align your body and ensure you have a functional core system to prevent further injuries, discomfort, pain and to start seeing results?
* YOU are NOT the only person experiencing any of the symptoms that you are experiencing!!
*That diastasis recti is extremely common and that most women who are pregnant will have one?
*That not all diastasis corrects itself on it’s own? But we can help you get on the right track to start healing from the inside out!
