    Ren's 6 weeks postpartum and it's been a wild ride. In today's ep she talks all things about the magic 6-week check, spills the beans on what's actually covered, and gives us the scoop on getting the green light to start your return to exercise. Ren's not holding back – she's dishing out the deets on what really goes down during the postpartum check. Spoiler alert: It's not always what you'd hope for. It's a bit disappointing that here in NZ, the standard checkup routine 99.9% of the time doesn't give new mums the thorough once-over they deserve after growing and birthing a tiny human. BUT.. we've got your back, Ren shares tips on how to speak up for yourself and steps to take to ensure you get the care and support you need. Ren also gives us an inside look at her postpartum rehab journey (or lack thereof), her transparency is real and relatable, if you're a new mum, about to be one, or just curious about what postpartum life is really like, hit play!

    Maternal birth injuries covered by ACC - Whats funded and whats not - Joined by special guests - Liberty Physiotherapy - 06-11-2023

    October 1st, 2022 marked a milestone event for birthing parents in New Zealand - The Maternal Birth Injury Bill became effective; ACC legislation was amended to include a number of maternal birth injuries as personal accidents.
    At She Moves we've seen first hand the long-lasting effects that Maternal birth injuries can have on women, so you betcha we were smiling ear to ear when we heard this news! The passing of this bill is such a pivotal step forward, enabling more kiwi women to access the treatment and support they deserve!
    Within this episode we are joined by expert Pelvic Health Physios from Liberty Physio, who talk us through what this means for birthing parents in New Zealand – what's covered and what's not.
    This is an essential listen for any new mum navigating a birth injury, ensuring she's well-informed about her entitlements and the support available..
