What is GROWCO Postpartum Rehab?
These small group classes are doctor lead, and evidence based. Rehabilitation is targeted to restore your total body, including core and pelvic floor muscles after delivering your baby. It is an eight session program with classes twice per week over a one month period. Classes are one hour in length, and incorporate breathwork, stretching, and strengthening the core and pelvic floor while focusing on supporting new moms – body and mind.
Who should consider postpartum rehab?
This is a simple answer – any and every mama.
Did you know the healthcare system in France covers pelvic floor and abdominal training after birth? This means moms in France never have to worry about jumping, laughing or sneezing!
If you have recently had a baby you should consider incorporating this postpartum rehabilitation class into your postpartum period. Your body has recently undergone tremendous changes and stress, regardless if your delivery was vaginal or c-section. It is crucial that your core and pelvic floor muscle functions are restored.
If you had your child some time ago, you may still be in need of restoring your core and pelvic floor. In some women the muscle function is restored quickly following delivery, but in some women the dysfunction persists. This may show up as recurrent low back pain, inability to control your bladder when jumping or sneezing or a persistent separation of your abdominal muscles. If you think any of these things sound like you, book an appointment with Ashlynn so we can determine if GROWCO may be a fit for you.
This is a family friendly class, and understand it can be overwhelming venturing out on your own post-birth. We are a warm and inclusive group with a safe space. Feel free to bring your children if needed!
It is recommended that those new to the program have a full body assessment prior to joining the class. Please contact us to learn about our next session.
