“The basis of the work that we do is in strength training programming. So we’re getting these people, we’re getting these moms, to be lifting weights and just getting them to feel really strong and capable in their bodies, and in turn in their lives in various facets as well.” (8:52)
“The struggles were necessary for me to think differently about birth, and that made me a better coach. Because I am able to talk to people in such a different manner and able to coach so differently. Able to kind of tap into my own fears and my own struggles and hopefully help them in some way. (10:37)
“First we need to tune in and be able to feel that sensation in our bodies of the pelvic floor relaxing and chilling out. Just going to the strengthening phase isn’t going to be the best route.” (25:34)
“I just want [sufferers] to know that it is a common experience, but there is help, and this doesn’t have to be something that they need to live with. Again, there is so much hope there is so much help, so if they want that help, then let’s help them.” (27:50)
“I think its a really positive thing to take a flexible mindset into these time periods of pregnancy and postpartum because your body does require different strategies during these periods because of all it is going through or all it has gone through.” (45:07)
