This class is taught by Farnum Rehabilitation physical therapists, and is perfect for expectant parents in their mid-second through third trimester. Participants will learn what a diastasis rectus abdominis is, how to check yourself and how to strengthen the abdominals safely. This class will dive further into the pelvic floor muscles to learn appropriate strengthening as well as stretching to reduce perineal trauma with delivery. We will also discuss comfort measures such as posture, body mechanics, belts and/or braces to reduce pain. This class is FREE. You will receive a Zoom link at least 24 hours before the class is scheduled to begin.
