Dominate your postpartum recovery!
Equip yourself for healing during the unexpected challenges of postpartum
without ever leaving the comfort of your own home.
Is Postpartum What You Expected
Visions of the first few months spent with our newborns typically include warm baby snuggles; long, relaxing stroller naps, and intimate moments breastfeeding.
However, most moms in the thick of postpartum recovery would tell you that they’re frustrated with trying to get their baby to latch or eat and feedings are extremely painful because of cracked and bleeding nipples. Some find themselves peeing when they sneeze, laugh, or exercise. Many moms experience pelvic pain that intensifies with each attempt to exercise or have intercourse with their partner.
These struggles often occur in mamas with “normal” vaginal deliveries without any complications at all. Did anybody prepare you for all of that? What about the moms that end up having a major surgery and delivering their babies via cesareans or those with perineal tearing or episiotomies that end up with stitches and scar tissue?
Why Can't I "Bounce Back"
Most women are under the impression that with time they will “bounce back” to the life they had before they gave birth. Unfortunately, many don’t know when or where to start with returning to exercise because they are given minimal guidance by their provider. They dread having bowel movements because they’ve become so painful. Between sleep deprivation and the inability to have intercourse, intimacy with their partner is suffering. They feel betrayed by their bladder while making frequent trips to the bathroom, if they even make it at all.
It’s safe to say that physical recovery after giving birth entails much more work than is implied when we refer to moms as “bouncing back”. If you want to enjoy every snuggle, every walk, every midnight feeding, you are going to need some guidance during your postpartum recovery.

Get The Best Bang For Your Buck
Have you ever utilized physical therapy for an injury? How much did your evaluation and treatment cost? Well if you’ve never personally gone to physical therapy and received a bill, the following is a real mama’s personal experience with physical therapy care received during her postpartum recovery. Included below is a picture of the actual bill from the hospital-based outpatient clinic that provided care. Each session was 60 minutes long with a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Specialist and the quality of service was exceptional.
The mama’s portion of the bill after the insurance adjustment was $370.18! Using this bill, 4 hours of physical therapy services would cost $1480.72. It is true that Physical Therapists provide their services in lots of different ways including outpatient offices, within hospitals, in-home sessions, and 1 on 1 phone consults. It is also true that the cost of these services can vary greatly depending on type of insurance coverage and a therapist’s level of expertise; however, the fact remains that 4 hours worth of education and training from a Physical Therapist is quite expensive.
