Hi, my name's Georgia Burns and I'm here today at plays anytime filming my c-section and traumatic birth recovery series. I have been teaching philosophies for almost 20 years now. I'm a certified Labor Doula and a Rehab Assistant. This program came about last year when I experienced a traumatic birth. All of my training and experience has prepared me for what I went through last year.
I was really lucky enough to spend six months at Toronto General Hospital working with people who had just had lung and heart replacements and I learned a huge amount of bed exercises that they could do the day they had their surgery. After having my surgery, no physios came to the room, no one came to show me what exercises would be safe and I was really lucky that I knew exercises that were safe and that I could do. And this program is here so that you have exercises that you can do and feel empowered and feel safe and gained strength so that you can take care of your baby. So the series begins from day one. The first day you have your baby, you can do the first two classes in the series. They are bed exercises that are safe and have been approved by a physiotherapist.
The second set of classes. So classes three and four are meant to be used after your first appointment and have given, been given the okay by your doctor to go ahead and do some gentle exercise. And the last two classes, classes five and six are meant to be near the end of your recovery when you're ready to transition back into your life, your life with a baby. So I hope you take a lot out of this. I hope that it helps you and gives you the support that I really needed right after my surgery.
And I'm so thankful to share this with you and everyone here at PyLadies anytime, feel free to ask any questions and I will always get back to you. Thanks.
