December 8 – Postpartum Fitness with Rhonda Chamberlain PT
The common advice given to women when returning to exercise postpartum is “listen to your body”, but what does that even mean? There isn’t a lot of contexts given with this advice. In addition, with the influx of #fitmom examples online, and the pervasive message to “bounce back” after pregnancy, the pressure to return to intense exercise postpartum can be overwhelming. Learn about your body, and changes to be mindful of when resuming exercise postpartum. And get tools and advice to get back into the activities you love to do in a way that honours your long-term core and pelvic health.

December 15 – Postpartum Pelvic Health with Pelvic Floor Physio Beth Albert Halford

The presentation will focus on some of the most common conditions we see post partum that can be resolved with physiotherapy and some guidelines to return to exercise safely after having your baby.
