There is SO much pressure, both externally and internally, to return back to our pre-baby life and routine. When it comes to any strenuous exercise routine, rushing back to this can have uncomfortable and extreme consequences.

What types of exercise are safe and can help me heal long term?
What are the warning signs that something is off?

Then you need the information shared in this conversation. It will give you guidance on how to navigate postpartum exercise for yourself or for the clients you serve.
