February Educational Topics & Presenters:

Post-Partum Exercises Lindsey Halverson, PT, DPT

"As a physical therapy I enjoy working with moms throughout the whole process of pregnancy, and postpartum whether that is recent or years in the past. We work on exercises to retrain your core to help reestablish the needed strength and stability for the lumbar spine as well as pelvis. We also work through stretching and improving flexibility to prevent injury. Another aspect of taking care of a mom in all stages of pregnancy and childcare is looking at the importance of posture and lifting techniques. Through the family support classes I will give you some starting information and exercises to work on building strength, flexibility, and improving overall mobility and health."

*Please bring a yoga mat or beach towel. We will demonstrate some floor stretches and you may want to follow along.
