What mamas had to say about the in-person version of To Birth & Back...

Mom of 3

"Before To Birth and Back I never really understood the anatomy of the pelvic floor and why I have was issues with running and going everyday task. I thought kegels would be enough. I now understand how to work with my body, to not have symptoms with running or with other exercises."

Mama to 2.5 y.o. & 6 month old

"This class was so beneficial to me in the often frustrating journey to recover from some of the problems I now have thanks to birthing my precious darling kids. Addie is so knowledgeable, honest, and encouraging all at the same time and is especially good at giving practical and doable advice to assist in the postpartum recovery process. I really can say the things I learned in this class have helped with bladder control, back pain, pelvic pain, etc. Thank you Addie!! We need more people like you and more classes like this to educate us Moms and normalize many of the challenges we face on the road to recovery. "

Mom to 4 y.o. | 2 y.o. | 8 month old

"I absolutely loved this course! Addie is so knowledgeable and makes the information digestible for those of us who are not PTs. I walked away from the class knowing so much more about my pelvic floor and how to return to the activities that I love! Definitely worth the investment of time and money, am forever grateful to have attended the course!"

Mom of 4 yr | 2 yr | 3 month old

"Addie did a fantastic job of breaking down the basics, talking us through anatomy and the anatomical reasons for the issues we experience and reinforcing past lessons. The videos are invaluable for referencing back to after the fact, as there is a lot of information and a LOT to think about as you work through the exercises. I emphatically recommend this program!"

Mama of 2

"Very informative course with emphasis on the body through all stages of pregnancy and postpartum. The knowledge and skills I learned from this course I have now adapted into my everyday life routines in the postpartum setting."

Mom of infant

"Wonderful class! Addie is a fantastic instructor and makes sure you understand a topic before moving on. She does a great job connecting the teaching to everyday life positions (lifting baby into car seat, changing diaper, washing dishes, getting up off the floor, etc.). What I learned in this class I will use for the rest of my life as a Mama! Definitely recommend it to anyone!"
