If you were not able to attend this year’s event, here is a little recap for you:

The Science Museum of Virginia partnered with Nurture this year and provided an incredible venue for everyone attending! The setup started around 8AM and by 10AM, people started trickling in with curious and excited faces.

Some of the ventures this year included MyBirth, Candy Bears-Kim who is a pediatric sleep consultant, Happy Latch, Embrace, Massage Therapists, Doulas, Midwives and much more!

Along with local pregnancy, birth and postpartum resources, there were fabulous raffle prizes, massages, and awesome demonstrators, such as NurtureCORE Kids Academy Women’s Health Physical Therapy CarryBean

Along with being one of the vendors at this year’s Nurture fair, we had the wonderful opportunity to be one of the demonstrators! Our focus was as follows:

U.S. women who have babies deserve musculoskeletal screening like women in Canada, Australia, and France! Come learn to be POSTPARTUM STRONG® by practicing exercises to prevent a “mummy tummy”, leaking, prolapse, and…sexual dysfunction.

Here are Women’s Health Physical Therapy, we love educating our community on the importance of supporting your pelvic floor function, postural alignment, abdominal and deep trunk muscles, coupled with proper breathing. Focusing on the “core 4” helps to prevent incontinence, prolapse, back pain and sexual dysfunction.
