The physical changes of pregnancy are obvious and visible. Usually met with an understanding, knowing smile of the back pain the pregnant person is muddling through. Unfortunately, postpartum issues are often kept quiet, hidden in confusion and shame.
In this workshop, physical therapist, Dr. Pamela Morrison will cover common postnatal issues that arise for many new parents and ways to remedy them. Dr. Morrison will explain the difference between urge incontinence and stress incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and why you may be feeling disconnected from your “core” function. Gather the tools that will help you go beyond the basics and dive deep into knowledge few of us have through a unique combination of lecture, case studies and assessment tools.
Students, birth workers and yoga teachers will work away with a deeper understanding of common but not “normal” physical issues new parents are experiencing and some solid tools for recovery.
