I was so excited to talk to Erin Underwood this week all about how childbirth professionals can use movement for strength, stress relief, and occupational longevity! Erin is full of fantastically helpful information and I felt like I could talk to her for days about how to use my body to better serve both me and my clients. She has an upcoming Core and Pelvic Class that is ridiculously affordable right now and full of mindfulness that I know I need more of in my life.
Erin Underwood is a movement therapist from Oregon that specializes in prenatal and postnatal health. She is passionate about education around pelvic floor and core strength and function. She has studied extensively and certified and trained with the top minds in the country connected to pelvic floor and core wellness. She currently is focusing on her local community by serving through workshops to the prenatal and postnatal community as well as local birth workers, providing them with the most up to date science broken down into practical and helpful tools. She also has four beautiful boys and, post deliveries, has personally healed from a grade 2 uterine and grade 2 rectocele prolapses and a four finger Diastasis Recti using all the tools she teaches in her movement therapy, which further fuels her passion for seeing women fully functional and getting all the information necessary to heal.
Here is the Psoas release video she mentions in the podcast. She also mentions the book: The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma. I mention this song by Florence and the Machine too, even though I should have also tipped my hat to Taylor Swift too.
