PHYSICAL THERAPY’S ROLE IN PREPARATION FOR LABOR

The genesis for this blog occurred after I attended a birthing preparation course taught by Ashley Brichter at Birth Smarter. This organization has virtual and in person childbirth education classes for expectant parents and professionals. Despite being 5 years removed from having children myself, I found the educational review helpful for my professional practice. It reminded me that understanding the anatomy of a vaginal childbirth can gift the expectant parent with tools to improve the birthing experience.

Workshop: Healthy Abs, Core & Pelvic Floor

  THRIVE PT is excited to announce that we will be hosting an interactive workshop, HEALTHY ABS, CORE & PELVIC FLOOR FOR ALL STAGES OF LIFE, on Monday, June 27th. Join two pelvic floor therapists, Solange Ross of Complete Core and Lindsey Vestal, of Functional Pelvis for an engaging discussion about how to strengthen your core with functional exercises that you can integrate into your daily life. Learn how to keep your core healthy to prevent common pelvic floor conditions that occur with aging. These simple, functional movements focus on the balance between mobility and stability in the pelvis and postural awareness. These exercises and self care strategies are appropriate for postpartum women (within the first year post baby), women with toddlers and school age children, and for perimenopausal women. And remember, pelvic health is important for men too! All are invited to attend. When:  June 27th, 6:30 – 8pm Where: Thrive Integrated Physical Therapy, 611 Broadway, Suite 503, New York, NY 10012 Register: $30 participant fee, CLICK HERE to register
