Recover Your Core
This class is for moms who are at least 10 days out from a vaginal birth and 6 weeks out from a cesarean birth, as well as the mom of any postpartum age. This class focuses on rebuilding the pelvic floor and stability muscles of the core, so that mom can safely resume functional movement and exercise after birth. This is NOT an intense fitness class, but rather a therapeutic approach to repairing the damages brought on by pregnancy and childbirth, (bladder control issues, diastasis, weak core, prolapse, low back pain, and incontinence, to name a few). The Postpartum Recovery class (PPR) follows the 4th Trimester Fitness Method for recovering the core and pelvic floor after childbirth.
