FAQs
When can I start the program?
You can start as early as 4 weeks postpartum. The first two weeks are super gentle and foundational and you do not need doctors clearance to complete. I would recommend waiting until you are 6+ weeks postpartum to complete weeks 3 and beyond.
Does this program include a C-Section specific recovery?
Both the 6 and 12 week return to strength have a c-section specific selection. Make sure you are choosing the right one before purchasing. The e-book that comes with your program includes additionally information to help you with your recovery too.
Can I do this if I have diastasis recti or a pelvic floor dysfunction?
Yes. Although I would recommend reaching out for more 1:1 coaching, especially if you do the program and your symptoms are lingering beyond so I can help you more. You do have the option to ask me questions within the app specific to your recovery too.
