All About Me
Mama’s you’ve prepared for your baby, but have you prepared for yourself too?
Let’s be honest we spend the majority of the 9 months preparing for the arrival of our sweet babes and we often lose focus on caring for ourselves.
Leaking. A mom pooch. Fear of sex after baby. Low back aches. Shooting pain in your crotch. With all the changes your body goes through during pregnancy, how are you now healing your postpartum body? How do you juggle between taking care of a newborn and taking care of yourself?
During my first pregnancy I suffered with terrible low back pain from excessive weight gain and symphysis pubis dysfunction that made it incredibly difficult to walk or even sleep. My postpartum experience was a slow recovery despite having a fairly uncomplicated delivery. Weight loss was minimal (so much for “losing it all" with breastfeeding!), I had the dreaded mom pooch, aka diastasis recti, and only made my symptoms worse when I attempted to return to exercise following my OBGYN clearance.
My name is Sigri Reyes. I am a doctor of physical therapy and pelvic floor specialist. This is a problem I faced personally following the birth of my first child 5 years ago and now I'm on a mission to spread more awareness on pelvic floor and postpartum health.

Doctor of Physical Therapy | Corrective Exercise Specialist| Prenatal and Postpartum Exercise Specialist| Concussion Specialist
Dr. Sigri Reyes is the owner and founder of Bump Fit Physical Therapy. Through her personal experiences in pregnancy and postpartum, Dr. Reyes’ interest peaked in this specialized field because she realized follow up visits with her OBGYN were not as comprehensive as other countries around the world. This leaves many postnatal women at risk for injuries, pain and movement dysfunctions.
What Do Others Have To Say About Bump Fit Physical Therapy?
I went to a free info session that Sigri was having at Shift Yoga Studio, because I had been having some tightness and weakness in my pelvic floor postpartum. Sigri had a lot of really great information and was really helpful at the info session so I decided to do PT with her -- it's also really nice that she comes to your house for therapy. I had never done PT and much less for my pelvic floor so I wasn't sure what to expect. Sigri clearly explained things and always made sure I understood the reason for doing the various exercises and therapies. I really liked how her PT care consisted of a variety of things including exercises, cupping, PT tape, theragun, and massage therapy. Within a few weeks I had noticed some changes and by the end of my work with her I was pretty much back to "normal". Being an avid yogi, I felt strong enough to go back to my classes, and no longer had any pain or discomfort. I'm so happy I did my therapy with Bump Fit PT -- it was convenient, fit into my schedule, and really effective in helping me recover.
I found Sigri through my OBGYN. I was experiencing a tremendous amount of hip pain and pubic symphysis pain due my body releasing too much relaxin hormone. I Choose to go with Bump Fit Physical Therapy because I wanted to work with someone who specializes in woman’s health and has experienced pregnancy herself. Sigri is extremely knowledgeable. Bump Fit Physical Therapy helped me with some of the easiest tasks such as turning in bed and walking and dressing myself. If you are pregnant and experiencing pain walking, putting pants on and pain sleeping at night, I strongly encourage you make an appointment with Bump Fit Physical Therapy.
At my six-week follow-up appointment after my third child birth, I was diagnosed with diastasis recti. I did some research for a pelvic floor therapist and came across the Bump Fit Physical Therapy instagram page. Sigri offered a free workshop at a local yoga studio and from there we connected to begin my rehab journey. Sigri's bedside manner is very easygoing, yet professional, and she answered any questions or concerns I had throughout the process. I definitely felt my core strengthen after just 2-3 sessions, and she provided me with some exercises and stretches that gave me immediate pain relief. My recommendation is to definitely use the services of Bump Fit Physical Therapy if you are experiencing any discomfort prenatal and/or postnatal. There is no need to settle for the aches and pains of pregnancy and/or the fourth trimester. Let Sigri guide you toward relief so that you can live the best version of yourself in motherhood.
After two pregnancies only 16 mo apart, I could tell my pelvic floor muscles were not able to function properly and my already poor posture had gotten worse. I learned about Bump Fit Physical Therapy through my yoga studio and decided to give it a shot. Sigri was fantastic to work with! With two small kids, it was so easy to have her come to my home or to do telehealth visits instead of having to travel to PT appointments. Within 6 weeks, my pelvic floor issues were resolved and I have noticed more awareness and strength leading to improved posture. I can now exercise without fear of leaking and I have a whole toolbox of exercises that I can continue to blend into my workouts. As I now go into my third pregnancy, I feel strong, healthy, and prepared for all the changes my body will be going through before and after birth. Thank you so much Sigri!
