These classes are therapeutic and designed to support women at the initial stages of postpartum healing, rebuilding function and confidence in the body. Classes are full of practical movement knowledge to support your healing, your body and your life.
You can expect to learn how to:
integrate strengthening movements into your life and everyday activities;
build strength, function and reflexes in the core and pelvic floor;
reduce stress on the postpartum body to support efficient healing;
identify when the body is under more stress than necessary;
manage the effects of caring for a baby (stiffness, sore muscles, stress, exhaustion).
This class is informal and very baby-friendly (pre-walkers), but feel free to come with or without your baby. There are many willing hands and hearts to help you with child care.
All classes are held at the Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre, 2260 Walkley Road
Wednesdays, Mar 7 - Apr 25 @10-11am
