Pelvic Health Post Baby series

Pelvic Health Post Baby is an upcoming free two-part Zoom series hosted by the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) - Eurobodalla Group.

Have you recently had a baby?

Do you want to learn more about your pelvic floor and how to strengthen it and help support optimal functioning?

Then these Zoom sessions are for you!

The pelvic floor is an area that often is overlooked in the early months after having a baby. But it is an area where problems can arise after pregnancy and childbirth.

ABA Eurobodalla Group Leader Michelle Hamrosi is excited to host two local physiotherapists, who will present this two-part series.

“Every year, local mums who come to our meetings request that we cover this topic. It's certainly an area of confusion or worry,” Michelle says.

“We are so pleased to be able to offer two sessions with a focus of pelvic health from two local experienced health professionals. Because of lockdown, we have had to take this event online. This means mums can take part from the comfort of their home, in their pyjamas if they wish!”

Gabrielle Cunningham, a group member and mother of two is looking forward to listening to the presentations. She says “After giving birth, I got asked a lot of questions. What is your pain like? How are you feeling? Are you getting much sleep? How is baby feeding? How is your mental health? Nobody ever asked about my pelvic health. I think this is a really relevant topic to a lot of mums.”

Part one, this Friday September 3 from 10.30am will be presented by Roya Speight. Roya is returning from her own maternity leave soon. She will be working specifically as a physiotherapist in women’s health. She has a keen passion for supporting the health and wellbeing of mums. During the Zoom session, Roya will cover common questions about pelvic floor, discuss why it is important, and how pregnancy and childbirth can affect its functioning. She will discuss a range of common issues experienced by mums. This will be a casual, interactive session - so please bring your questions along!

Part two, of the series will be next Tuesday 7th September from 9am. Joelle Karam from Tidal Physiotherapy (Batemans Bay) will lead attendees through a series of Pilates exercises to strengthen core and pelvic floor. Joelle has specifically designed these exercises for new mums (she teaches weekly via Soul Tribe Studio in Batemans Bay). Joelle, who is passionate about Pilates, says: “I love helping people connect to their body through mindful movements. Pilates offers a space to do that; connecting body and mind safely to support movement for life.” This practical session is for beginners. A yoga or exercise mat is also useful if you have one.
