Information: beyond the postpartum basics
What information do you need? Is it time to go beyond basic information?
So many soon-to-be moms learning, postpartum moms looking for information and solutions & then there’s those we need to empower to demand more cause the basics weren’t enough.
Which one are you?
Are you getting what you want?
I’ve been doing education on Instagram for over 5 years now. Five years is FOREVER in the social media landscape!
But I feel like the climate is shifting…
There are three types of women searching for information:
1 women who preemptively educate themselves. They’re thinking about getting pregnant, and want to be knowledgeable going into the process.
2 women looking for information because they’re having issues. They’re looking for basic solutions because they’re just getting started..
3 women that have done “the right thing”. They’ve worked with a pelvic PT, with a coach or trainer. But they’re still having problems. Maybe they get a little better but they are still having problems.
And then they ask…
Is that it? Is there more?
What they may not realize is that there could be another level of options. It may be they have to see a more experienced provider who has more nuanced solutions.
Just because you’ve completed one program doesn’t mean there isn’t more room for you to improve your symptoms.
We need to empower women to ask for more and how to find those next level resources.
You didn’t fail Physical therapy. You’re just not done yet!
Let me know what you think. If you’re a mom, let me know which category you’re in and what type of information you’re searching for.
If you’re a provider, let me know where your wheelhouse is. There’s nothing wrong with saying your forté is with basic information.
