Happy Mom, Happy Baby
The fourth trimester is tough. Not only do you have a new baby, but your own body is recovering from pregnancy and childbirth. During this time, your body is vulnerable to injury and postpartum complications. For this reason, it's important to maintain a strong body while also being conscious of how you are carrying out daily tasks that involve your baby, your job, and any household duties.
Overall, these programs allow you to have a Physical Therapist as your best friend while you maneuver through the phases of healing post-pregnancy.
*These programs are intended for women who are not currently experiencing orthopedic or pelvic floor issues. If you are postpartum and currently experiencing a musculoskeletal or pelvic floor issue, please visit the Postpartum Physical Therapy page. Once a session has been scheduled, you will receive a phone call from Rooted Wellness Physical Therapy to confirm your session.
