E3 - Postpartum Recovery - Padsicles, Pelvic Floors, & What NOT to Forget

Welcome to Episode 3 of the Raise Your Hand Motherhood Podcast!

In today's episode, we're talking about POSTPARTUM RECOVERY. We spend months preparing ourselves for the arrival of our baby……and now that we’re home, with a newborn, climbing the STEEP learning curve of motherhood - we’re supposed to try and find/make time to HEAL?!

No worries, Mamas - I’m sharing the TOP 10 THINGS every new mom NEEDS or NEEDS TO KNOW about postpartum healing (plus one VERY important bonus) - so open the notes app on your phone, or grab a pen and paper, and get ready! 

My guest on the pod today is Marjorie Walker - she’s a Physiotherapist and Osteopathic Manual Therapist with advanced training in Pelvic Health. We’ll talk everything from the pelvic floor, to prolapse, to the biggest physical issues she treats in pregnant and postpartum women. Marjorie will also share a few ‘MUST-DO’s' for Mothers or Moms-to-be, so don’t miss out!

As a new podcast, it would help me out SO MUCH if you would leave a review for the show. Please share your thoughts on Podchaser, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts, or leave a review directly on my website, www.raiseyourhandmotherhoodpodcast.com
