Episode 55 of The Engine Mom Podcast with Julie Wiebe, PT is available now! Julie Wiebe is physical therapist with over twenty years of clinical experience in both Sports Medicine and Women’s Health. Following her passion to revolutionize the way women recover from pregnancy and return to high levels of fitness, she has pioneered an integrative approach to promote women’s health in and through fitness.

Julie maintains a clinical practice in Los Angeles and shares her approach for post pregnancy and pelvic health recovery and return to fitness with women worldwide through online courses.

When not trying to change the world one pelvic floor at a time, Julie is happy to focus on her first passions: being mom to the Z’s (Zoe and Zack), and wife to David.

Listen in to hear my guest talk about:

– how when she first started in PT, the “core” as we know it was not even a “thing” and how the way we view the core has changed over the years

– an old school of thought that ultimately left female athletes with a prescription for “no fitness” if they experienced any core dysfunction and how she made it her mission to change that through blending the worlds of pelvic floor health and traditional physical therapy

– why breathing and breathing patterns are so important to connect to our core and why you should STOP holding your breath

– and talks about ACOG’s latest release of fourth trimester guidelines, definitely a step in the right direction for the future of women’s health
