How to Overcome the 3 Most Common Postpartum Return-to-Run Mistakes
- Constantly searching for the “right way” to get back to running after having your baby because you don’t want to make a mistake?
- Do you feel like you’ve tried to start back to running but you’re feeling weak, confused about your pelvic floor and you’re scared about messing things up?
- Confused trying to unpack how & when to go back with diastasis recti, leakage or prolapse?
- Wish you felt more confident about getting back to the trails?
It’s time to stop beating your head against a wall with this FREE Postpartum Masterclass as your guide!
You’re in the right place.
It’s tough to find real answers, advice without the sugar-coating & support that actually works. It’s even harder to find someone who won’t tell you to stop activities you love without a plan to return or give you a guilt trip for failing to complete an endless list of exercises (which didn’t seem to make a difference in the first place).
Look no further.
I was one of the women who thought post-partum pelvic floor issues just came with the territory of motherhood, until one day when I accidentally stumbled across Carrie’s Instagram. It was then that I realized there was something I could do to return to a normal life where I didn’t live in fear of not making it to the bathroom in time. Carrie is a wonderful resource who really took the time to get to know me and provided me with techniques that were easy to implement in my daily life. I’m happy to say that over a few months of working with Carrie, my pelvic floor issues are under control and I know what I need to do to stay well going forward. I have recommended Carrie to many of my mom friends and would encourage anyone with post-partum issues to reach out as well.
Carrie guided me in my postpartum journey of returning to my normal work outs and activities. I was having symptoms, and so I knew I needed help. I worked with Carrie over video chat and the experience was wonderful. She was able to do a full evaluation with me, including taking information, administering some screenings, giving clear explanations, and answering all my questions. She developed a simple, but effective plan for me to continue to progress towards my goals. Carrie has been extremely responsive to my questions between sessions and has definitely made me feel like I got comprehensive treatment, even though it has all been over telehealth. Thank you Carrie for the excellent service!
“Before getting pregnant, running had become my sanity saver during COVID. I’m so thankful for your help getting back to running, otherwise I don’t know how I would have survived all of this!!”
“Carrie has been such a blessing and I am so thankful to have found her! I started seeing Carrie due to pelvic pain that kept me from enjoying sex. I’d had the problem for years and had been to numerous doctors trying to find the root cause. Carrie was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and willing to explain every aspect of the treatment process during our appointments. Thanks to Carrie I am now pain free, something I didn’t think would be possible. Carrie is not only knowledgeable, but truly gets to know you and is a champion of her patients and their progress. I would highly recommend her.”

As a life-long runner & a Women’s Health Physical Therapist for years, I had a hard time finding guidance on what I needed to do to get back to impact activities safely after having my son. After I had my daughter 2 1/2 years later, I knew I needed to get strong & joined my local CrossFit gym. Finding guidance to navigate impact for singles, doubles (someday!) & box jumps was even harder! Everything I knew about getting back to workouts focused on mat activities or just plain standing…nothing prepared me for impact! This is why I’ve made it my mission to support women in their return to fitness the right way.
