Prenatal and Postpartum Wellness

Are You Pregnant or Postpartum and Live in the Birmingham Area?

A Message From Dr. Stephanie Perez, PT, DPT, Owner and Founder of Empowered Wellness
A woman’s pregnancy is one of the most remarkable and life-changing experiences she can have. It can also be difficult to care for oneself during this time. Pelvic floor irregularities, on the other hand, are common during this time and can be easily corrected with minimal effort. Taking care of these issues when they emerge will spare you years of pain and incontinence. During pregnancy, it is estimated…
After the delivery…
These problems are not limited to women who give birth vaginally. Pregnancy hormones can relax the body’s ligaments, putting the mom at risk for pelvic rotations even if she has a c-section. Scar tissue from the c-section may also restrict the capacity of the pelvic floor muscles to relax or contract, resulting in complete discomfort and incontinence. Empowered Wellness can thoroughly assess abdominal muscle function, overall posture, scar tissue mobility, and pelvic floor muscle function. When the underlying source of the problem is discovered, a customized treatment plan can be developed to address it, allowing you to resume living the life you want.
Don’t Put It Off Any Longer; Empowered Wellness Is Here to Help.
If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, you've come to the correct spot!
Empowered Wellness encounters a lot of postpartum women who are in unnecessary agony because they have been told…
The Truth Is...
If You’re Tired of Having Painful Sex, a Mommy Tummy, or Chronic Low Back Pain, Empowered Wellness Can Help You Get Back to Doing What You Love (Even if It’s Been 20 Years!) Without the Use of Pills, Pads, or Surgery.

You must choose the greatest healthcare provider for your specific needs. If you don’t, you risk having unnecessary surgery, becoming addicted to medicines or painkillers… or surviving the rest of your life with worsening symptoms.

To avoid recurrence, leakage, abdominal separation, pelvic floor dysfunction, and postpartum hip/back/pelvic discomfort must be treated utilizing the “least-invasive,” most natural manner.

A provider who understands how the body works are required for recovery. Pregnancy and postpartum both change our bodies. We must address the neck/back/diaphragm/core/pelvic floor/pelvis, posture, strength, and body use to properly recover. It’s more than just Kegels!

To guarantee a thorough recovery, we must treat more than just the symptoms. You must engage with a specialist who is willing to look into the underlying causes of your symptoms and dysfunction. That is when you will get a PERMANENT solution to your postpartum problems.

We've Developed a Three-Step Procedure at Empowered Wellness to Eliminate Your Postpartum Problems and Ensure You Never Have to Deal With Them Again.

Step 1 - We Want to Hear Your Story.

Our healthcare system irritates me. You wait weeks, if not months, for an appointment to talk with the doctors for 10 minutes before they rush to the next patient, leaving you scratching your head, thinking, “What just happened?”

This is how the majority of physical therapy clinics operate. They are not attentive and move at a rapid pace, and your therapist does not have time to learn about your goals or work with you one-on-one. That is why we work so differently!

That is why we want to hear your story first.

After successfully working with several postpartum women, we recognize that no two persons are alike. Each person has a unique anatomy, history, and pain and symptom patterns.

As a result, as a first step, we will have an open chat and allow you to share your story. That way, we’ll have a better understanding of not only what’s wrong with your health, but also how it’s affecting your life.

Step 2 - Determine Why Your Symptoms Emerged

Many people have a medical term or diagnosis to describe what is wrong with their bodies. Maybe it was prescribed by their doctor, maybe tests confirmed the illness, or maybe you found out about it online.

You may have been diagnosed with Prolapse, Diastasis Recti, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Incontinence, Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain, or Hip/Back/Pelvic Pain.

You were probably told that your only options were to relax, take medication, or wait.

These measures may provide temporary relief, but they do not address the underlying cause of the problem.

Each individual’s source of pain or symptoms is distinct. Nobody suffers the same problem as someone else because of the same item.

Our goal at Empowered Wellness is to treat the underlying source of your discomfort so that it not only goes away but stays away!

We understand that you may still be skeptical of Integrative Physical Therapy. As a result of this, we created a low-cost Discovery/Screening Visit.

Our Discovery Visits are intended for people who are skeptical, uncertain or have been disappointed in the past. During the Discovery Visit, you will understand what is wrong and how long it will take to correct it, as well as gain confidence that your condition can be resolved naturally!

Step 3 - Get Rid of the Problem and Keep It From Reappearing

This is when huge changes occur. We provide a personalized plan that allows you to…

…continue a physical activity (even running or jumping!) without fear of continuing pain, stiffness, or bladder control concerns.

…be able to communicate with your children, lift and carry them easily.

…resume intimate connections with your spouse without fear of pain.

…return to your favorite kind of exercise (yoga, running, tennis, etc.).

As your body heals from the Diastasis Recti/Abdominal Separation and regains full core strength, you will regain your power, confidence, and sensuality.

Our ideal clients are motivated individuals who wish to restore their active lifestyles. (Even if they are currently imprisoned!)

You don’t have to give up your hobbies or family life because of problems that can be fixed.
