Coaches, this informative episode is a must listen. Today I have the pleasure of sharing an interview with Dr. Rachel Parrotta, a physical therapist out on Long Island. During this conversation, we dove deep into Rachel's specialty: Pelvic Health. As a mother of two, I was eager to unpack the topics of pregnancy, birth and postpartum care with Rachel.
Rachel leads us through a discussion on anatomy and less discussed topics such as prolapse, what its symptoms are, and who the right professionals are to seek help with for it. Pelvic health is a topic that applies to all genders, but it is not frequently discussed openly, and I'm pumped to have Rachel joining us for this episode.
You'll hear us talk about:
- How you can help and support moms through their pregnancy.
- What a mother can do to prepare for pregnancy and birth.
- The differences and symptoms of both hypertonic and hypotonic pelvic floors.
...and so much more!
Don't forget to leave us a review on Apple...
Alison B. Marsh of Pregnancy Pilates Impact joins me today to talk all about pilates. She educates us on the definition of "perinatal" and why she uses that term when talking about her work, and she walks us through some pilates history and why it is a great form of exercise for pregnant and postpartum clients.
You'll hear us talk about topics such as:
- Why Alison believes pilates is the best fitness system.
- The importance of recognizing that some medical professionals are focused on healing specific organs rather than providing therapy for an entire system.
- Some misconceptions about pilates.

Today I sit down with a very special guest – Brianna Battles – to discuss training the pregnant and postpartum client. She has been instrumental in educating me and changing the trajectory of my career as a trainer, and I am so happy to share this interview with you all.
Pregnancy and postpartum athleticism is an area that can be lacking in trustworthy information online and on social media. Often times on social media, one trainer might suggest you take this or that easy. Another might push the idea that you can keep going at the rate you always have.

- How postpartum is forever – a fact many people do not take into consideration – and your athleticism does not need to end when your motherhood begins.
- Pregnancy introduces a number of physiological factors that...
