On this episode of the podcast, I chat with Christina Prevett about her work as a physiotherapist in the geriatric and pre and postnatal exercise space as a high level athlete herself. Her recent study, the impact of heavy resistance training on pregnancy and postpartum health outcomes, and what we can do as people who are wanting better outcomes for pregnancy and postpartum and what we can do as clinicians as well, who are working with these athletes.

Christina’s #1 Tip:
“Your body is strong and your body is resilient. And if pelvic issues come up, we know how to handle them. But that does not mean that your body is not strong and that your body is not resilient. It's just rehab.”
