In this episode, I had the pleasure of sitting down to chat with Dr Juan Michelle Martin, who is a Physiotherapist based in Duluth, Georgia specialising in women's pelvic health.
This episode is especially for the ladies, talking about how to manage the changes the body goes through during pregnancy and after childbirth, and how to train safely during this time.
Some specific topics Dr Juan goes through include what exercises to avoid during pregnancy, how soon after childbirth is it safe to start training, dealing with urinary incontinence, pelvic floor exercises and much more!
