    Comment:  In case there are any mothers (at any post partum stage from 6 weeks to 6 years or more) out there looking for a really effective and enjoyable class, I want to recommend a class I've been going to in Spoke the Hub. It's sort of a mix of PT/Melt/yoga/pilates by a highly experienced and well-informed instructor, who is also a mother herself. Rachel was first recommended to me by my midwife.I have no affiliation whatsoever. I just love the class and I have signed up for a second term.If anyone's interested, you can find out more here:WWW.rachelannewelch.com/revolution-motherhood/

    Comment:  Another shout out for Revolution Motherhood! I took Rachel’s 12 week Foundations class this fall and it was a great way to safely get moving again after having a baby. I started the class at ~8 weeks postpartum and Rachel really takes the time to get to know everyone in the class and provide specific modifications based on your recovery/fitness needs and goals. It is a very supportive environment and Rachel is so accessible and available for questions and support, even outside of class. I definitely recommend if you are looking to get back to working out after baby but not exactly sure where to start or what to do!

    Comment:  I have seen a number of people posting recently looking for recommendations for dealing with diastasis and other post-partum fitness issues. I wanted to recommend Rachel Welch's program to those of you looking to restore your fitness levels post partum (or frankly at any point after childbirth, even years later). Rachel's post-natal fitness program is amazing to rehabilitate the core, and focus on anchoring the mind and the rest of the body in what can be a difficult period. She works specifically with healing diastasis, pelvic pain and other post-baby injuries.Rachel is smart, loving, intuitive and will push in the right ways to help you - the program is so personalized even in a group setting. Even my baby is in love with Rachel - pre-crawlers can come to classes and Rachel attends to even the most fussy babies lovingly as she also leads class. The community of moms is also amazing, and I always feel 150% better after class even if I've gotten no sleep or am run down beforehand. There are also videos that accompany the classwork so there's always an option to keep up with the program. I honestly don't know what I would have done without it - I was so terrified and unsure of how to begin moving again after giving birth this Summer.

    Comment:  I was able to get rid of it by doing the Revolution Motherhood program with Rachel Welch. Highly recommend! Her Foundations series is taken by a lot of postpartum moms but I got a ton out of it and my kids are in elementary school. She also has a harder/sweatier class called Integration that is a great workout.She teaches at Spoke the Hub and also at a studio in Dumbo, and there are videos you do as homework (but you can do as little or as much as you can fit in). Rachel is a lovely person, funny and smart and she is a busy local mom with 2 young kids so totally gets the challenge of trying to fit it all in. I believe the first class is either free or $20, either way, it's worth checking out.She has a Facebook group too- Revolution Motherhood.
