Pilates Instructor, Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist, Mom, founder of The Bromley Method and creator of the Postpartum Protocol, Emma creates programs that blend Pilates, Physical Therapy and Strength Training for optimum results.
As someone who had a severe 4 finger diastasis herself (postpartum ab separation about as severe as it gets), she knows too well that the core functions differently after birth. By initially switching out her Pilates core exercises for Physical Therapy core exercises, she was able to completely heal her core, close up her diastasis and lift heavy things effortlessly again.
Just as when you train your glutes to get a great looking firm butt, once you achieve the butt you desire you don’t just stop doing those exercises and hope it sticks. No. You keep doing them.
It’s the same with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (leaking, diastasis, prolapse etc). Once you heal from those things, if you stop doing those exercises you used to heal, those issues will very likely return. So for those who have healed from PFD, this program keeps all of those incredibly effective core healing exercises, but also builds from there, also adding in high pressure, high intensity core exercises so that the core can remain balanced, healed, and the strongest you’ve ever felt!
