  1. Hi! I’m 18 months postpartum w my first baby and trying to get pregnant. I had a mild DR after pregnancy. I am 99% positive I purchased your retrain your core program but I can’t find the info anywhere. Is there a way to confirm before I repurchase? I recently hurt my back for the first time in my life. I think it may have to do w pregnancy and DR. It’s really frustrating as I’m an extremely active person. I’m so worried about this affecting my ability to be active and stay fit. Especially if I get pregnant again. Would love any advice you could give. Thx so much!
