Postpartum Connect All-Inclusive Bundle

Foundational Strength, Education and Connection for Postpartum, all in one place

Start Now


You had a baby and now there are a swarm of people telling you how and when to start moving, working out or healing. Why does it have to be so confusing when you just want to get back to what you love without peeing yourself? What if you could get the knowledge of a pelvic health physical therapist in the comfort of your own home with an easy to follow plan?



Who's Sick of this "Bounce Back" Bullshit?

Here's the thing, there's no seamless transition to parenthood and that includes figuring out how to pee, poop, have sex, and god forbid do a sit-up or run a mile

This program respects all bodies, all births, and all backgrounds and then helps them build a foundation for long-term athleticism and function.

This program take you from your first postpartum poo to running and jumping with everything from crunches to planks in between.

 

Who Is This Program For?

This program is for anyone who just had a baby and wants to restore function of their core and pelvic floor to help with things like prolapse, pain, urinary leakage, mobility, strength, abdominal separation and function.

"Will this program be too hard if I've never worked out?"

No. This program is intended for every level and every goal. You can complete only the "core connections" portion of the program for 12 weeks and have a solid foundation for everyday life and function with a baby, toddler or children.

"Will this program be challenging enough to get me back to my running or lifting goals?"

Yes. This program will lay the strength foundation for pushing, pulling, squatting, hinging, overhead lifts and even running and jumping. Each movement has three levels of difficulty and then you can pick the load guided by our "be your own trainer" principles to respect where you are in healing and recovery.

Laurel Proulx PT, DPT, OCS
Laurel Proulx PT, DPT, OCS

I'm a Doctor of Physical Therapy and an Orthopedic Certified Specialist who has advanced training and experience in Women’s Health and Pelvic Health Physical Therapy care.

More importantly, I've been an injured athlete, a patient that no one would listen to or believe and found hope and answers in movement, my own research and reclaiming my identity. I've also witnessed my friends and patients suffer through the "why didn't anyone tell me?" part of new parenthood and I'm here to tell the truth and provide resources to not only feel empowered but provide a plan and connect the dots.

My professional experience has taken me from working with high level athletes, helping moms get back to feeling like themselves, amputee rehabilitation and asking research questions with the department of defense to improve diagnosis and treatment of pelvic pain within the active duty population.

I have a vested interest in improving overall awareness and health literacy of pelvic health issues for my patients, other physical therapists, and all health professionals.

I'm a loud advocate with a unique perspective on pelvic health movement and rehab (not just kegels) and I can't wait to work with you!

"I had an unplanned c-section and was not prepared for the recovery. Once I was able to work out, I started working with Laurel. In the beginning, I was afraid to sneeze because my back would just give out. My back would hurt all the time. I used to run before giving birth. And that is all I wanted to get back to - and now I am able to run because of Laurel. My back feels so much better - and of course I am no longer afraid to sneeze. I would highly recommend anyone that has given birth to work with Laurel. She is not only highly talented, but she is also kind and patient. She takes the time to make sure that you understand the workouts, what you should be doing, and also what you shouldn't be doing. I'm very thankful I worked with Laurel."

When Should I Start Postpartum Connect?
Anytime you want! - The educational modules can even be watched while you're pregnant. - The Core Connection modules are intended to be started around 4 weeks postpartum. - The Strength Foundations modules are intended to be started at 6-weeks postpartum for an uncomplicated birth and once you have been cleared from your medical provider. The educational modules are intended to guide you on what level of activity you continue through without symptoms which will be different for everyone based on previous activity level, goals, birth history, and current needs.
What if I had babies years ago?
This course is for you too! There are three perfect people for this program. 1. Someone who has just had a baby 2. Someone who has been working with a pelvic health PT but not transitioned to more athletic movement 3. Someone who has been working out postpartum but may be struggling with pelvic floor dysfunction with movement or struggling with progression and performance
Does this take the place of pelvic health physical therapy?
No. This is a movement program meant to set a foundation of strength and coordination of your whole body, including your core and pelvic floor. This program uses rehab principles and knowledge of prenatal and postpartum physiologic and biomechanical changes to focus on what you need and nothing more. This is not take the place of an individual assessment from a pelvic health physical therapist, which I highly recommend. There is no other medical provider that can perform an assessment of your core, scar tissue, pelvic floor muscles, and pelvis to explain your leakage, pressure or pain and make an individual plan for you.

Every participant will have access to the private "Postpartum Connect" facebook group to ask questions, attend live Q+As and listen to monthly expert webinars on everything from perinatal mental health to infant feeding. It is my dream for you to be connected to a community to support you through this life transition.

“Working with Laurel to learn about diastasis recti rehabilitation and pelvic floor strengthening was completely transformative! Her in-depth knowledge and calming, friendly personality made our time together an enjoyable experience. She has an incredible ability to explain these complex systems in an understandable way! After eight weeks of therapy and carefully assigned home exercises, my large abdominal split was completely closed. I have since had another pregnancy, being mindful of the knowledge and exercises Laurel taught, which resulted in no abdominal split at 8 weeks postpartum! She is a wealth of knowledge and an extremely admirable person and friend!”
