We get it. Being a mom is full-on and full-time. Equal parts FUN and WTF. Our kids don’t come with instructions, and it’s ok if we don’t have all the answers. We’ll figure it out together. The best advice comes from our favorite experts and doctors, trusted mom friends, and learning on the job. Get your coffee — or wine! — and tune in to hear us spill it all. We got this. This is MOM BRAIN with Hilaria Baldwin and Daphne Oz.
You asked and we listened! The Mom Brain email has been blowing up and one of our most requested topics is help with Diastasis Recti, the condition which most women go through after child birth, in which the abdominal muscles separate during pregnancy and the healing process postpartum can be overwhelming for many women.
Hilaria and Daphne are joined by Erika Bloom, 20 year veteran Pilates instructor, former professional dancer, a trained doula and pre and postnatal Pilates and yoga specialist. Erika works with countless women to help them rebuild their bodies, using her custom methods to help women throughout all stages of life in rebuilding and syncing their minds and bodies. Try to get a private session at one of her studios and you'll be waiting for a while. Her client list includes, professional athletes, dancers, and celebrities, as well as those young and old, injured and healthy.
She holds dozens of certifications including 600+ hour Pilates mat and apparatus, therapeutic yoga, Klein, Alexander, Feldenkrais, Protocols of Osteoporosis, Muscle Imbalance Assessment and Correction, Nutrition, and Gait Analysis.
Together they discussed exactly what is Diastasis Recti, how to tell if you have it , methods of healing, and much more! Erika is also a mother of 2 beautiful children and tells us how she balances her successful business with being present for her kids, and shares her nutrition and wellness routine. And as always, stuff we love that we think you will too.
