What We Talked About
We’ve long felt that the standard 6 week postpartum period was far too short. In this webinar from the Okayest Moms Summer Series, we go into more detail about what is normal and what is not, when to seek help from a specialist and how to advocate for yourself as a patient.
Amy Zipp is a physical therapist who specializes in the pelvic floor. She is a wealth of knowledge and her passion about the subject of women’s postnatal health is obvious when you listen to her speak. I’m not exaggerating when I say we learned a ton. Did you know you can have nerve damage from baby kicks? Nolan used to kick me so hard, I’m honestly shocked I just learned this today! Ha!
If you are struggling with any physical changes since giving birth, this is a can’t miss webinar! You can follow Amy Zipp (@amyzipprehab) and her Pelvic Floor Mafia (the name for her crew of pelvic floor health advocates) on Twitter!
