I’m all about taking care of you and meeting you where you’re at. You will learn strategies to heal and to thrive in your fitness endeavours. 4 years ago, only 12-weeks postpartum with my second baby, I was diagnosed with a pelvic organ prolapse of my bladder and urethra.
I had some incontinence during my workouts before pregnancy, but never imagined it was related to my pelvic floor. I had no one to turn to for help. So I became that person.
Through rehab, courses and working closely with pelvic floor physiotherapists, I became comfortable to begin training at a higher capacity.
I had to put my training plans on hold, temporarily. After a surprise pregnancy, unplanned c-section and a round of rehab that took 4-months, I signed up for CrossFit. No leaks, no sagging, no symptoms. Yes, there is life beyond pelvic floor dysfunctions like incontinence, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse.
Here’s the big issue.
Women are generally told to limit activity with pelvic floor dysfunctions by their care providers, leaving them feeling hopeless and afraid to move. Period.
This can be life-altering, affecting your mental health, physical health as well as your relationships with others. You need to restore your mind and body balance first.
With a decade of experience in the fitness industry, I’m here to help you. I want to help educate you to make informed decisions and provide guidance regarding your training that will serve you a lifetime, not just a few weeks.
