Healing Sciatica Pain From Pregnancy


We believe women do not have to fall apart after birthing children! We offer a Core Foundations course that can help you in healing sciatica pain, diastasis recti, and other symptoms of core weakness. We have helped many moms and welcomed many babies into our little family. Below is the story of Katie (and baby Lydia too!) about how she was able to strengthen her core and pelvic floor during pregnancy.

I wanted to share my birth story to tell everyone how The Tummy Team and Fit2B helped me through my pregnancy and labor! Lydia is my fourth baby, yet this pregnancy started out 100% better than the last. I didn’t know about Diastasis Recti until after the birth of my third baby two years ago. At that time, when I tried to measure my diastasis, I couldn’t even find the edges of it, and it took months of Fit2B before I could feel it at about a five-finger width.”

Katie, having so much sciatica pain, as well as pain in hips and lower back, swore off babies after her third child. After completing the Core Foundations Program, Katie was able to close her diastasis completely and relieve sciatica pain – even while still nursing a one-year-old! Just a few months later, another baby was on the way. sciatica pain, pregnancy, diastasis, postpartum, pelvic floor

“I was amazed by how much stronger I felt throughout my whole pregnancy. I feel like knowing and understanding my body and alignment made this pregnancy the best, even though I was still taking care of three other little ones. I did the Prenatal Core Training around 20 weeks into my pregnancy and was reminded of how to take care of my alignment and body while growing the baby. I know my diastasis began to open a bit, and at times my back would bother me, but it was NOTHING like my pregnancy with my third child. Having a mostly sciatica pain free pregnancy is amazing if you are used to having it every day in other pregnancies. Another amazing note is that I did not leak [you all know what she means!] through the entire pregnancy! My pelvic floor was SO much stronger. I *might* have had a few slight leaks during weeks 39 and 40 (baby was eight days late) but seriously, who can say that they have gone that long without leaking in a pregnancy?! I felt so great this pregnancy compared to my others!”

“At three days postpartum, I feel like I am already almost put back together. I began wearing a splint again about an hour after labor…It feels so good to have it on – a HUGE difference to letting belly feel all jiggly for days on end after birth. I’ve begun working on belly breathing and alignment again and I can already feel my body working on healing and getting stronger. I hope you can find some inspiration and hope through my story!
