Join us on Thursdayst for our March MummyTummyTuck℠ schedule also! www.makingspaceforbaby.com Join YoniYoga℠ weekly for strength, toning, flexibility, and overall a healthy womb. Blood circulating to the womb brings oxygen and healing, and toning helps with preventing or recovering from pelvic floor prolapse. The pelvic floor holds all the internal organs up such as the bladder, bowel, and is even attached to the deep abdominal muscles. For a flat tummy, bladder control, and bowel control, the pelvic floor must remain elevated. Abdominal separation which is common during and after pregnancy, can cause the pelvic floor to weaken. Try our MummyTummyTuck℠ classes also. Pregnancy and Postpartum can cause the abdominal muscles to separate, and many times not go back together. This can lead to back problems, pelvic floor prolapse, and a bloated abdominal area. Join us to learn the self-care and exercises for both prevention and recovery in this fun class with pregnant and post-partum moms. MummyTummyTuck℠ is specific for abdominal separation (diastasis recti) prevention, healing & recovery.
