Moms and Abdominal Health

Pregnancy and delivery are a big deal. In recent years it has become more common for women to be prepared for the changes that happen in the belly and pelvis after pregnancy. But it’s still a shock to many.

I want you to be able to heal fully after your pregnancy.

As you move from carrying your child inside your body to carrying and caring for your child outside your body, a lot of discomfort can arise. Just as much discomfort can arise after a miscarriage. My work in-person and through my online programs are meant to help you with this.

It’s very common for women to feel (at any time after their pregnancy):

  • digestive and urinary changes
  • abdominal and/or pelvic pains
  • scar numbness and pain (often at the same time)
  • pain at the pubic bone (pubic symphysis)
  • hardness of the belly, bloating, or swelling
  • abdominal separation (diastasis)
  • and more

You’re not alone.

Whether your pregnancy ended in miscarriage, a vaginal birth, or a cesarean birth, there is a lot that can be done to help you feel comfortable in your body once the dust has settled.

Too often, after women are released from a doctor’s care at six weeks they are left feeling they just have to live with however their body feels at that time. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

While some women seem back to “normal” six weeks after their delivery or the end of their pregnancy, most women benefit from more specific ongoing care.

High-quality abdominal massage can help you recover fully. Whether you work with a practitioner or learn to massage your own belly, you can help yourself avoid many of the abdominal and pelvic discomforts associated with giving birth.
