Compassionate Pregnancy & Motherhood Support in Pittsburgh
What to Expect
Wondering what to expect from your sessions at Resilient Motherhood? Here’s how it usually works.
The first session is when we learn the most about you, what’s going on, and help you get to the root cause of why your symptoms are occurring. We will have a detailed discussion about your symptoms, your goals, and take into account your lifestyle (sleep, stress, exercise, nutrition), childbirth(s), and symptoms.
We will do an evaluation in the first session, which includes assessing how you move, including any movements that provoke your symptoms and movements you do daily or for working out. We will touch many of the muscles to assess how they are working for you.
We can touch a few of the pelvic floor muscles from the outside, so we will do that when you are moving so we can learn how they’re functioning when you’re moving. Often, it’s beneficial to do an internal pelvic floor assessment to see how all of the pelvic floor muscles are working, but this is just one piece of the puzzle.
During that first session, you’ll get started on your treatment and we’ll dive deep into problem-solving in the following treatment sessions.
At Resilient Motherhood, we do a lot of hands-on work. Physical touch helps you learn how to relax and activate muscles and is key to helping the brain learn how we want the body to work. If you do a virtual session, you will just be using your own hands instead. Either way, we make sure you can replicate the hands-on treatment at home (either by yourself or with a partner).
We also use stretches, muscle activation and relaxation work, nutritional changes, habit changes, and body-mind work to help you reach your goals.

Reaching Your Goals for Pregnancy & Motherhood
How long will it take to reach your goals?
Of course, this varies from mom to mom and we will give you a better idea of your investment after your evaluation.
Generally, though, we ask our clients to set aside 4 months to focus on themselves and on reaching their goals. Most clients need 8 visits within this time frame. At first, sessions are typically once a week, but then we start to spread them out to every other week as you get more confident.
child the treatment they need.
