For you mamas out there, you might’ve heard that a permanently weak core and bladder “leakage” are normal post-baby, but Dr. Jackie Kickish is here to tell you that it’s not. Postpartum pelvic floor dysfunction might be common, but that doesn’t make it healthy, and it also doesn’t mean you have to live with the shame and embarrassment of it for the rest of your life. Jackie is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and certified pregnancy and postpartum corrective exercise specialist who’s on a mission to help moms improve their pelvic floor function so they feel strong and confident. If you’ve had a baby and you’re ready to get back to the fitness world, give this episode a listen so you know what to do (and not to!) as you head back to the gym.
