Episode: E132 – Returning to Exercise after Birth.

Guest(s): Sheree Budgell, Pelvic Health & Orthopaedic Physiotherapist 


Today on ParentTalk, Geneviève and Heather are welcoming Pelvic Health Physiotherapist, Sheree Budgell, to talk about returning to exercise after birth.


We cover:


  • What timelines should a postpartum mom follow when returning to exercise or running?


  • For moms who love to run, should they be squeezing their pelvic floor the entire time to prevent leaking?


  • Symptoms that moms should be aware of that indicate that a type of excercise is too much load for their pelvic floor.


  • Can we do longterm damage by returning to high impact exercise too early?


  • Other possible factors that need to be considered with returning to exercise.


 Happy Listening!
