Sciatic pain is a common occurrence during pregnancy- but that doesn’t mean you should have to suffer through it! We’ve had clients (and instructors) who had to be put on bed rest while pregnant because the pain was so excruciating that they were unable to walk. It’s no joke! I wanted to share some things you can try to help alleviate the pain.

We’ve got some exciting news- today we are releasing an app that will teach women all over the world the technique of Coordinated Pushing. Now women don’t have to be in Atlanta, or taking an Oh Baby!

I couldn’t be more excited, and honestly more proud to share this app with the world. The app is called exactly what it is: How to Push Out Your Baby.
“Before I got pregnant, I was in a pretty active rhythm, incorporating a combination of strength training, warm yoga fusion, and Pilates classes into each week. I was able to maintain most of that routine for the first trimester, but I’m starting to hit some walls recently. I get fatigued more easily, recovery takes longer, and a lot of different kinds of movement are becoming uncomfortable or even impossible for me to perform. So I have two questions: (a) at this point, and going forward, what are the types of movement that are NOT safe for me and the baby? And (b), what are some effective exercises to replace the things that are no longer safe?
One of the most important things we teach our clients about is DIASTASIS RECTI (abdominal separation) – a common pre/postnatal condition. It’s important to know what it is, as safe exercise can help control it but some types of exercise actually make it worse. Here’s what you need to know:
Check out our video on how to perform a self-check to see if you have any abdominal muscle separation (Diastasis Recti) during your pregnancy. It’s good to know it you have a split, so you can know what exercises to do to repair it after your baby is born. Weak/split stomach muscles can cause back pain if not corrected.
