Mother and Daughter Love

TO THE POSTPARTUM WOMEN...

Do you feel like you've tried it all? Or like something still doesn't feel quite right? 

You’ve been told that you need stronger core and pelvic floor muscles, but after trying all the exercises, you feel frustration with your current exercise routine ‘not doing the trick.’ You feel bogged down with day-to-day overwhelm preventing you from being able to do the things you love. You feel resentful that it seems like everyone is winning at life and you’re stuck on a hamster wheel just trying to get through each day…

What you want:

  1. Help from your partner and/or support system so you can feel validated

  2. Guidance from someone to help you navigate where to go from here

  3. Freedom and permission to carve out more ‘you time’ (without the guilt)

What you tried and didn’t work:

  1. Organization, to-do lists, and sacrificing sleep to ‘fit it all in’

  2. Doing your PT exercises and workout routine religiously

  3. Waiting for people to volunteer to help you

These don’t work because:

  1. Fear of rejection stopped you from asking for help

  2. There are missing links & support for hormone regulation, sleep hygiene, & proper restorative work for your mind + body

The best way to move forward:

  1. Build a web of support so you don’t have to navigate uncertainty alone

  2. Receive non-judgmental and compassionate guidance in understanding how to ask for help

  3. Learning to practice saying 'thanks but no thanks' so you can free up your time and reduce daily energy leaks

  4. Reframe postpartum health and wellness into an individualized mind-body-spirit-mindset approach, honoring the body's many interconnected systems (including hormones, digestive functioning, and immunity)

How receiving support will affect you:

  1. You'll gain support for boundary-setting and feel relief knowing there's a path forward

  2. You’ll get clear in what your postpartum health & wellness means to you and feel grateful for your already-strong foundation

  3. You’ll practice boundary-setting and feel empowered to express your needs unapologetically

  4. You’ll adopt an exercise routine, sleep hygiene strategies, and restore connection with your intuitive and feminine monthly rhythm

As a woman, you're naturally creative and resourceful. You’ll be amazed with your own instinctive & intuitive guidance in the process of rediscovering what your motherhood health means to you. And the other bonus byproducts: less body aches, more stable energy, and more balanced hormones. Join me if you’re ready to commit to yourself and a partnership as you embark onto the path of pliability!

 

ABOUT KELSEA

Health Care Provider and Health Coach

I take postpartum & motherhood care beyond the core & pelvic floor muscles and support women in using their own intuitive guidance to reduce levels of burnout, resentment, and fatigue, which tend to slow women down in reaching their desired health and wellness goals. I wanted to offer frustrated moms a different process to make sustainable health gains. I guide busy, overwhelmed moms in the process of crafting more time into their lives through means of boundary-setting and self-empowerment, enabling them to express their needs unapologetically. They, in turn, begin to experience decreased day-to-day overwhelm, return to their preferred mode of exercise & self-care, and reestablish connection to themselves & their higher purpose in life. Other bones byproducts: less pain, improved energy, more balanced hormones, and more adaptable nervous systems for graceful transitions through all seasons of life.


Moving through the journey of becoming a women's health coach has better supported my own boundaries and self-care. It taught me how to appreciate the full expression of who I am as a woman and not simply just as a health care provider. I've always adored my role as a physical therapist & pelvic health specialist, but I started experiencing cycles of burnout and feeling generally run down, leaving little space for the necessary physical & emotional bandwidth to live my life (eating well, sleeping well, exercising, and experiencing spontaneity & joy) . I was succumbing to the vortex & pressures of modern health care (and, hey, modern day life) even though I worked within wonderful clinics, had wonderful patients, and had a loving support system. While I still thrive on my work as a pelvic and orthopedic physical therapist, transitioning to health coaching has allowed me to engage in a partnership with my clients vs a hierarchical relationship. Now as a health coach, I've gained better tools and training in order to engage with clients to best support them to achieve their own health goals (and not the goals I set for them). 


Through my health coach training, I started tapping into my own potential to maximize my personal health & wellness. The process prompted me to work with innovative and practical options to enhance my own accountability to myself (this was a novel idea coming from a more intense all-or-nothing medical background). I focused on my own body, mind, & spirit in collaboration with non-judgmental coaching colleagues & partnerships. I created a safe space for my own well-being, as a woman, as a physical therapist, and now as a women's health coach. I have a passion for coaching and working alongside other women, because I know my issues with boundaries and self-care aren't unique to me.


For me, getting into integrative women's health coaching has been worth its weight in gold. It's given me what I needed in order to add sustainability to my own well-being as I move through the decades and seasons of my life both personally and professionally. I finally feel like I am leading the life that I want to live.

"I had no idea what health coaching even was until I found Kelsea and her health coaching services. Health coaching helped me in ways I never expected. Kelsea's expertise as a pelvic health PT helped me really trust her along the way. And she shared such good resources. The coaching process was unlike any support that I had ever had after having my baby (which, honestly, wasn't very much). I went from being barely able to walk to being able to jog 4 miles daily (without pain!). Pelvic pain was a huge issue for me, but my personal boundaries were also shattered when I had my baby, and Kelsea supported me in being able to re-establish my own sense of well-being and confidence. I highly recommend Kelsea and her integrative women's health coaching services!"
