Avoid Pain and Complications
We treat way too much of both in our clinics. Our generation of moms really expect ourselves to be great at everything- happy homemaker, busy professional, sexy and fit…oh, and a great mom. Many of us are also a decade older than our moms were when they had children.
To that end we often charge forth and expect our bodies to come along for the ride. They can’t always keep up!
Most pain comes from straining- not being strong enough to do the activity you’re trying to do, or from using poor posture with prolonged positions (nursing, carrying baby). These posts will help you avoid that pain.
Also, check out our ever-growing list of special topics, as we address some of the most common complications.
Let us know if there is something specific you’d like us to cover!
Remember, this advice should be taken as an adjunct to your good judgment and consultation with your doctor or midwife. There are a million reasons why you may be having pain, and we cover topics based on our personal and clinical experience.
Since we have not examined you please consult with your doctor to have your problems specifically diagnosed.
