Physical Therapist and Co-Owner
- Are you pregnant or planning to become pregnant?
- Do you want to have a safe, pain free pregnancy as well as a smooth delivery?
- Do you want to have a recovery that allows you to continue to live an active, pain free life, while keeping up with your children?
If you’re pregnant and experiencing lower back pain and stiffness, pelvic and hip pain, or urinary incontinence that just won’t go away – you might be thinking that these are things that you will just have to deal with until the baby comes or that they will just go away on their own. Or, you may pass it off as something that everyone experiences during their pregnancy and recovery...
If this is happening to you, you’re NOT alone - and we hear this type of thing all the time. We have helped hundreds of women have a pain free pregnancy and smooth delivery. In fact, helping women of SWLA have the pregnancy of their dreams is something that we specialize in!
When it comes to living with pregnancy related pain, everybody we see wants to know:
"Why Is This Happening To Me?"
“Why Am I Still Suffering With Back And Hip Pain Or Having Urinary Incontinence After My Delivery?”
Now that you are pregnant, you may have noticed there are many changes taking place in your body while you are growing your little one. There are hormonal changes that affect your ligaments to allow your body to adapt and grow, as well as prepare your body for delivery. There are changes in your weight distribution and how you move. These are all normal changes, but they can start to cause aches and pain.
Most people hope that they can just make it through their pregnancy and once they have their baby, it will all be over. But, that isn’t always the case. Many times our pain does linger and can affect you long after you have your little one.
Does This Sound Like You?
Does it seem like no one is really listening to you and dismisses you because this is “normal”? Everyone tells you “it’s just something every pregnant person deals with.” Did you get the advice to just rest or take it easy?
Resting and waiting for symptoms to go away is often never the right advice.
Even if you don't experience pain everyday, are you concerned about having pain or incontinence further down the road?
If You’re Currently Living With Pain During or After Your Pregnancy, Here’s 5 Reasons Why It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:
- 1. You thought it would go away on its own - but it didn’t
- 2. A family member, or friend, told you that everyone hurts when they are pregnant
- 3. You tried other Healthcare Professionals, or a Physical Therapist in the past, but it just didn’t seem to make a difference
- 4. You searched the internet and watched some videos that promised immediate relief, but they either didn’t do a thing, or even made your symptoms worse
- 5. You decided to get a few “massages” hoping that would fix your pain, but all they did was feel nice and relaxing in the moment, and didn’t do anything to fix it long term…

I work with pregnant women of all ages just like you to find relief and inside you’ll find all the information that I teach to my patients to help them improve their pain and strengthen their core in order to have a painless pregnancy.
Unfortunately, many mothers never learn how to properly activate their deep core muscles after delivery. Therefore, when they return to high intensity workout programs or even just the day to day rigors of taking care of their kids they are not using the right muscles, so I am also here to help you after delivery as well.
My free eBook will explain everything you need to know about helping with your pain during pregnancy.
