Thanks for all your help…Your kindness during a time when I wasn’t so sure this had been a good idea was greatly appreciated! Your skills and kindness were so helpful and encouraging!
I was diagnosed with SPD at 24 weeks pregnant and the main issue was facing was overall mobility. It was painful to walk, lift or play with my children, get dressed, do the laundry, get in and out of the car and even shower. I was so limited.
Doing nothing and being sedentary didn't work. My OB said "Just rest," but that wasn’t working.
After working with Rachel everyday life is just easier. I finally feel like I can be a mom.
My quality of life is so much better and you can't really trade that for much else.
For those Mothers who are considering working with Rachel, I'd insist that you invest in your health. Invest in your wellbeing. Invest in yourself and your body, because it's not only going to benefit you, it's going to benefit those around you. So just do it.
Pelvic floor dysfunction is a common condition where you’re unable to correctly relax and coordinate the muscles in your pelvic floor. Women can usually tell if they have issues based on their symptoms. Alternatively, you can see your doctor, midwife or physical therapist for an official diagnosis.
Pelvic floor issues include:
Urinary incontinence: AKA - the feeling that you have to pee ALL the time or the leaking or peeing you experience with any exertion like coughing, sneezing, laughing, jumping and running
Diastasis recti or abdominal separation: a separation in the rectus abdominus muscle that occurs as a result of pregnancy. You may notice either doming, sinking or pooching of your belly at rest or with certain exercises.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse: the feeling of dragging, heaviness or something in the vagina
Pain: that includes low back or sacroiliac (SI) pain, pelvic joint pain (like symphysis pubis dysfunction/pelvic girdle pain), and even hip or knee pain
