Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

There are lots of myths about exercising while pregnant that are not supported by evidence. Today, Dr. Mae Hughes is on the podcast to help debunk some of those myths. We also discuss the benefits of exercising while pregnant, along with what type of exercises are safe for pregnant and postpartum women.
Dr. Mae Hughes is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, a mama to a new little girl, and a fitness fiend who’s passionate about helping women feel empowered during every part of their pregnancy and prepared for a healthy postpartum journey. Dr. Mae specializes in treatment of the pelvic floor for women who are pregnant or postpartum to help them stay pain-free (and leak-free!) while moving through motherhood.
She stands behind the philosophy that pelvic floor, core and most other full body issues during pregnancy and postpartum are absolutely treatable, even preventable, and with the right care women can regain the strength and control needed to perform any activity they desire. When she is not treating patients in Nashville, TN or creating digital courses for pelvic floor health, she is likely somewhere outside hiking with her husband, dog and now little girl, Ava.
Knowing which exercises are safe is yet another thing that can cause anxiety for women when they are pregnant, so hopefully this conversation can ease some of these anxieties and answer your burning questions!
