- Are you pregnant or considering pregnancy?
- Do you relate to any of the following?
- Uncertainty about how one properly maintains their body during pregnancy…
- Feeling unprepared for childbirth…
- Concerns about postpartum recovery…
- Anxiety that your personal well-being will be forgotten throughout your pregnancy…
ESPP aims to address all these issues and more. The online program was developed by Nuvo Physio’s co-founder and women’s health physiotherapist, Jennifer, to fulfill the gap in high quality maternal healthcare. It’s a one-of-a-kind pregnancy program that’s comprehensive, practical, and designed to synchronize with your gestational calendar. This program aims to promote self-care, foster maternal empowerment, and serve as a stepwise guide for maternal care.
ESPP takes the guesswork out of what to do during pregnancy. It provides a comprehensive model of care that keeps your body in shape during pregnancy; prepares your body for childbirth; and supports you in your postpartum recovery. The program provides cues on when to seek treatment from specific health care professionals that will help you along your maternal journey.
Here’s the order of health services involved in ESPP’s prenatal model of care timeline that are encouraged for you to follow:
- Pregnancy week 14: Physiotherapy (musculoskeletal care)
