Because who the heck is supposed to be telling us any of this stuff anyway?...

Educational Workshops

It's true, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of intervention.  This year I'm making a commitment to change the conversation about Women's Health (especially PELVIC health) to the best of my ability.  Join me in these community based workshops to fill in the gaps of our knowledge, ask questions, and get some solutions to the often under recognized details of the women's health landscape.  We just don't know what we don't know. 

Pregnancy

Prenatal Pelvic Floor + Core Workshop

This is the class that covers the essential “what I wish every woman knew about her body before having a baby” content. In this 2 hour educational workshop I will go through the same content that I teach my clients in our initial two sessions together.

 

It's all about mastering these basics first!

Objectives: 

  • Learn the 4 essential components of your 3-D core for stabilization, strength, and performance during pregnancy. 

  • Promote confidence in your functional movement patterns and daily lived experience. 

  • Learn how to prevent/reduce common injury patterns and pain presentations during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy. 

  • Learn how to harness the functional power of the core and prepare your pelvic floor musculature for vaginal birth. 

  • Prepare for optimal pelvic floor healing and functional performance for after baby arrives.


Please note: This is an educational workshop, there will be applied techniques, and general coaching — but no hands on personalized administration of care.  For person specific needs please inquire about a 1:1 session.  

When:  Saturday, February 3rd @ 10:00-12:00

Where:  Modern Alchemy, 220A E. Front St, New Bern, NC

Postpartum Pelvic Floor + Core Workshop

This 2 hour workshop covers the basics on all the essential information that I believe EVERY woman should have access to in order to thrive postpartum. 

Objectives: 

  • Learn what to the pelvic floor is, and what it’s primary functions are

  • Learn how the pelvic floor is a part of a larger 3-dimensional cylinder “the core” — and how all the pieces of that core should work together (in rhythm)

  • Learn to apply the essential 4 components of core function to your routine daily life. 

  • Learn how to return to exercise and movement routines with confidence that you are not going to harm your body. 

  • Learn what is “normal” vs what is “common” pelvic floor function postpartum. 

  • Learn how to prevent common postpartum presentations: 

           • bladder leakage  
           • over active bladder 
           • constipation 
           • bowel leakage 
           • pelvic organ prolapse 
           • painful sex 
           • low back pain 
           • “the shelf” 

Please note:  This is an educational workshop, there will be applied techniques, and general coaching — but no hands on administration of care.  For individualized person specific needs ask about a 1:1 session.
