About the Class

In this workshop for moms in any stage of pregnancy, join Dr. Alicia Ferriere, Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist, and Kendra Fitzgerald, Pregnancy & Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist as you learn the essential techniques to keep your core and pelvic floor (safely) strong all the way to 40 weeks.

After this workshop you’ll have a clear picture of the role your core and pelvic floor play during pregnancy. From keeping you feeling ‘connected’ your entire pregnancy, to minimizing back pain, having a more efficient labor AND setting a great foundation for a smooth postpartum recovery, this opportunity is not to be missed!

  • Learn about Diastasis Recti and how to minimize it starting in pregnancy

  • Correctly & efficiently keep your core and pelvic floor muscles awake and strong during each trimester

  • Integrate this core and pelvic floor engagement into your prenatal workouts (and life!)

  • Learn the important role your core and pelvic floor muscles play in birth

  • Train your core and pelvic floor muscles to help with the pushing phase of labor (and the early days of postpartum recovery!)

The workshop will be in person with an option to join via livestream on Zoom, with a recording available for 30 days after the workshop.
