Can I bring my baby to the class?
Learning about posture, proper core setting, strengthening and breath work require focused attention. While having little ones with you can be fun, it is also a distraction to you and the others in the class. In order to get the most out of the classes please take the hour to focus on your body, and leave your little ones at home.
Why is an assessment with a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist recommended before starting the class?
I suggest that all participants have a pelvic floor assessment with a Physiotherapist prior to the start of the class. This allows a specific look at your individual needs, can identify common conditions such as DRA, pelvic organ prolapse and the reason behind stress urinary incontinence and frequency. The assessment is also a way to ensure you are a good candidate for the class.
The only way to know what you as an individual need to work on is to have an assessment. Typical pelvic floor assessments include a detailed history of your pregnancy and birth, medical history including old injuries, postural examination, DRA and core activation, an internal vaginal and rectal exam of the pelvic floor musculature.
I am already seeing someone for Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy. Do I need another assessment before the start of the class?
Unless it has been more than 6 months since your last treatment there is no need to have another assessment. When you register for the class let us know who you have been working with. If you give us permission to share information regarding your physiotherapy treatment I can get the necessary information from the Physiotherapist you are working with.
I am a few years postpartum is this class still appropriate for me?
Absolutely ! I have had women 6 weeks postpartum and 19 years postpartum!
What happens if I miss a class?
Each week you will get a hand out of exercises to work on at home. Each week builds on the previous week and at the end of the class you have a program of stretches, releases and core exercises. If you are going to be away just email me after class and I will send you the home exercise sheet so that you can work on it at home.
How do I register?
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and forward your name, address, telephone number, the name of the physiotherapist you are working with and a statement giving us permission to share information regarding your physiotherapy to email@example.com
Payment is required at the time of registration to hold your spot.
