Taking Ownership of your Pelvic Health
It's Wellness Wednesday! Dr. Brooke Kalisiak, joined Mary in studio to share 3 tips for postpartum recovery.
1) Deep breathing can be used to reconnect with your core and pelvic floor.
2) Exhale with exertion. We can use exhaling to help engage our core muscles (abdominals and pelvic floor) to better support our trunk when we lift babies, the carseat, the stroller, etc.
3) Partner with a pelvic physical therapist to optimize your recovery. In Europe, it is standard of care that women go to pelvic PT after giving birth, but here in the US women are left to fend for themselves most of the time with their recovery.
