The WHY

Being both Pelvic Physical Therapists and Mothers (Amanda-3, Leslie-2) we understand the importance of pelvic girdle and core specific exercise during the prenatal period! Pregnant women can often have aches and pains associated with our bodies changing and growing a baby. Thankfully, exercising your core and pelvic girdle in an aquatic setting can lead to better post-birth outcomes while also reducing these "normal" pregnancy aches and pains.

 

The Pelvic PTs and COM Aquatics strive to serve the community especially the underserved pregnant moms of Midland/Odessa! We developed this class to allow affordable access  to core and pelvic girdle strengthening in a comfortable environment for all pregnant mom's of Midland and Odessa!
