E132 – Returning to Exercise after Birth with Sheree Budgell | Parent Talk

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!

Geneviève & Heather
