POSTPONED – NEW DATE TBD
Pregnancy and childbirth are amazing, powerful experiences in a woman’s life. But it doesn’t always feel that way.
As a matter of fact, many women experience quite a bit of physical pain (beyond the normal discomforts) during pregnancy. And far too many women have very difficult births that require myriad interventions, even resulting in surgical births. Medical establishment aside, mechanical issues are one of the primary causes of these problems.
In this two hour workshop and movement class, presented by ICAN of Southeastern Pennsylvania and led by Restorative Exercise™ Specialist Jennifer Gleeson Blue, you will explore the basic alignment adjustments necessary to:
- avoid/decrease pain in pregnancy
- optimize birthing space
- enhance overall pelvic floor function (no more sneeze pee!)
- prevent or minimize diastasis recti
- improve strength-to-GROWING-weight ratio
This workshop is your starting line if:
- you are looking to have a better pregnancy
- you want to optimize your chances of having a positive birth experience
- you are planning a VBAC
- you’ve been told your pelvis is too small to give birth
- you had a prior malpositioned baby
- you need to manage your blood pressure
- you want your body to be in the best shape possible to recover from a planned cesarean
- you know pregnancy doesn’t have to be this miserable
Come prepared to explore stories of birthing, corrective exercises, and essential information about lifestyle adjustments that can make all the difference in your childbearing year.
Note: the sooner you begin aligning your body, the easier it is to adapt to the changes pregnancy brings. So this class is definitely for those of you planning a future pregnancy, too!

Time: 1:15 – 3:15pm
Fee: $20 (free for ICAN of SePA members!)
