Join Logan Spacek, physical therapist and postpartum wellness coach, and myself for this episode where you can expect to learn about the mind-body connection and how that interrelates to pelvic floor health, and our mental health.
Gain some insight as to how our own motherhood experience can shape the care and support we are bringing to our clients, and how we are moving beyond postpartum maternal mental health awareness and more into prevention.
This prevention lies far outside the Western medical scope of practice. So many of these issues that arise in postpartum can be prevented with a more holistic, whole body, preventative type of care.
As professionals, it is becoming more and more important how we are showing up and helping provide this information and resources for our clients because most women are not being prepared for the postpartum period on what to expect or how to support their body and needs.
After listening to this episode, spend some time brainstorming how can you communicate the significance of postpartum mental health, nutrition, pelvic floor health in a way that extends beyond a list of resources?
How can we convey these significant components of postpartum well-being that go beyond the usual “here’s a list of people who can help you”?
It’s a very in-depth, beautiful question that can challenge you to think outside of the box to find ways to better support and prepare your clients for the postpartum period.
I invite you to carry on this conversation with us in The Postpartum Circle Facebook group.
We’ll see you there.
