Her Inner Strength Program
Her Inner Strength has been specially design for the postpartum mom whether 6 weeks, 6 months or beyond 6 years.
Many times moms will focus on the outside, what they see in the mirror and want to fix the “mummy tummy” or narrow the gap in the abdominal muscles (diastasis rectus abdomins) by doing exercises that may make it worse. Return to jogging to burn calories but are leaking urine (urinary incontinence) . While ignoring how their body feels on the Inside.
Some moms may feel a heaviness or pressure in their pelvic floor. Some may even feel a bulge when wiping. Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is defined as when an organ such as the bladder, uterus, bowel descends into the vagina. This may or may not cause urinary incontinence. Some may have painful intercourse after a tear or episiotomy and some may have back, shoulder and neck pain while caring for baby.
Taking time for yourself to have a full recovery from pregnancy and delivery is not selfish. You deserve a body able to function optimally as you care for your family and yourself. Her Inner Strength is designed specifically for you.
