The Real Food Mamas Podcast is about two crunchy moms chatting about health, nutrition and just what real life is as a mom.

Sep 29, 2015

Core and pelvic floor health is something that is often not considered during their pregnancy; however, during the postpartum period mom’s may notice that they still look pregnant, experience a little leaking when laughing or working out, or have pain in their back or lower body. It’s really important to address these issues to feel your very best! Wendy breaks down this complex topic and provides practical tips and inspiration. This is a must listen for pregnant women and women in the postpartum. Even if you don’t think you’re dealing with core or pelvic floor issues, you’ll want to tune into to understand how you can reduce or prevent problems in the future. We know you’ll love Wendy’s positive and empowering message!

 

Wendy’s Bio: 

Wendy is an expert in postpartum and postpregnancy exercise, and after working with thousands of women who suffer from Mummy Tummy (aka pregnancy belly and weak pelvic floor), she realized how misinformed most of them were, specifically when it came to exactly how their abdominal muscles change as a result of pregnancy. Which is why helping women to not only look and feel fabulous, but also to be strong, pain-free, supple and fully functional, continues to be her inspiration and motivation. Medically endorsed MuTu System is a 12-week program with a whole-body approach to alignment that can help help all moms, new and old, rebuild a foundation for a strong core with natural activation, a healthy pelvic floor, and will get them on the road to achieving their pre-baby body.

Wendy Powell talks about diastasis recti, core, and pelvic floor health.
