We are quick to take care of everyone else and put off our own care and needs. I’ve had the privilege to see women along the spectrum of life, & see how pregnancy, labor, delivery, & postpartum recovery are all effected by one another, & ultimately have effects on our bodies for the rest of our lives. My goal is to see women THRIVE at every age so that they can do the things they want to do without any limitations.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
HERE'S WHY I CAN HELP with that
I love working with women of all ages, and women’s health really encompasses serving women at multiple stages of life. I work with young athletes struggling with incontinence, newly pregnant moms, couples who want to decrease length and pain of labor, the veteran mom who’s had 5 babies, and the middle-aged woman who may have back pain, pelvic organ prolapse, or incontinence issues. In addition, if you’re a proactive woman who wants to PREVENT some of these issues that can accompany pregnancy, having babies, or changes as we age, I would LOVE to see you and help you!
And that's how I learned that what I do is actually totally unique and special.

What is the investment?
Set of 4 appointments:
DURING THE 2ND TRIMESTER (BEFORE 20 WEEKS) - 1ST VISIT: is to teach you some gentle exercises that are going to be important to utilize during pregnancy to help keep your core strong, prevent or minimize a rectus diastasis, help your pelvic floor, prevent common pain and dysfunction that occurs during pregnancy, and also give you an exercise program you can continue on with if you desire. We can also address any pain you might be having or other orthopedic issues that may come up. This is always individualized to your specific body and needs because each woman is different!
AT 36 WEEKS - 2ND VISIT: is all about getting you ready for labor and delivery. This visit can be done with your partner. We'll go over various labor/delivery positions, and I'll be able to teach you some hands-on techniques that can both be used to give the baby more room to get in the right position, which will help decrease pain, length of labor, and perineal trauma. We'll also do some pelvic floor muscle and ligamentous balancing which helps prepare the pelvic floor and uterus for birth. other orthopedic issues that may come up. This is always individualized to your specific body and needs because each woman is different!
AT 1 WEEK POSTPARTUM - 3RD VISIT: in early postpartum is focused on getting your core muscles going again. After childbirth (c-section or vaginal delivery) it can be difficult to activate the pelvic floor or other core muscles. We'll work on muscle activation and recruitment, check for any diastasis that might be present and begin treating it if able, and talk through a few other issues that are common after childbirth. We can also deal with any pain that might be present from labor and childbirth.
AT LEAST 6 WEEKS POSTPARTUM - 4TH VISIT: is after you've been given clearance from your physician to resume normal activity and exercise. Now we can really deal with any pelvic floor issues that might be going on such as pelvic floor muscle weakness, lack of control or motor recruitment, and pelvic organ prolapse. If you still have a diastasis I'd like to get a little more aggressive in treating that so it does not cause you future problems such as back injury or pain. And then we can talk about working into an exercise routine that works for you and your lifestyle if that is your goal. Many women jump back into exercise after they've been given clearance from their physician, without any real knowledge of how to do so in a smart way. I've seen lots of women struggle with back pain because their pelvic floor and core are still so weak. I want to prevent that by giving you the tools you need to return safely to exercise and normal functional activities.
Tanya has given me the mobility needed to play with my kids and function in my high placed lifestyle. Her love and compassion for her clients shows as an appointment with Tanya is a wholistic healing experience. I get more than just a PT appointment; It's a physical, spiritual and emotional experience that empowers me as a woman and my good body that has been created for me.
It was great to gain knowledge in how to recover from having my 4th child. Becoming familiar with breathing techniques, retraining my brain, and strengthening my pelvic floor was such a win. It was great to not feel alone, and well supported working through postpartum beginning weeks.
I was expecting my first baby and did the OB package (virtually, I'm from Michigan!) I absolutely loved working with Tanya, she is kind, professional, and really easy to talk to. I was so impressed with the what she could help me with even though I was in a different state!
