57-The 3P’s and ABC’s: The Body's Boundaries Checklist// Know When To Modify Your Exercises During Pregnancy, Postpartum Recovery and Beyond

Hey Love!

One of the most common questions I get from the women and especially pregnant or postpartum mommas is “Is this exercise safe” or “Should I be doing this or is it too much for me?” or “Is this exercise bad?”. Unfortunately, the answer is not as simple as “good or bad exercises”.  Every person has different strength and capacities, which makes their body perform differently than others. Meaning, some exercises that could be beneficial for one person may be very problematic for another.  So it is more about understanding your own body and how it is showing up for you during any exercise or activity.  Knowing your body’s boundaries are crucial for avoiding injury or causing issues like leaking/incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, diastasis recti (DRA) or even hemorrhoids or hernias.  Especially during pregnancy, postpartum or recovery/rehab periods where the body is adapting and healing and more vulnerable, we need to know that what we are doing isn’t going to put us or the baby at risk.  


Inside this week’s episodes I am reviewing the 3 P’s and the ABC’s: The Body Boundaries Checklist, so that you can feel confident as you move through different exercises and activities during pregnancy, postpartum and beyond.  It’s time we stopped avoiding exercises out of fear and also stopped wasting time doing things that are only going to hurt us or put us at risk.  Whether you are just beginning your fitness journey or are experienced but in a new season of life, these are health and fitness concepts that every active person should know! 


As always, if you are experiencing any pelvic floor/women's health issue like urinary incontinence/leaking, pelvic pain, pain with sex, urgency, heaviness/prolapse or any other back/hip/joint pain let's get you booked for a virtual coaching session or in person physical therapy session for a more individualized plan and one-on-one instructions so you can feel confident in your body and start healing today!!
