Learn about our Clinicians Program
What is the MommaStrong clinician program?
The MommaStrong clinician program is a partnership between ourselves and anyone who may refer their patients/clients to MommaStrong. It was designed to improve the connection between the greater medical and bodyworker community to our trainers and physical therapist advisor. It also was created to give clinicians a better understanding of our evidence-based programming. Plus, we wanted to make it easier for clinicians to get the word out about MommaStrong, which is why we created a free 30-day trial offer for their patients/clients. We also have materials explaining more about how our program works that clinicians can order at no cost to them.
Who can join?
Anyone who treats patients or clients who may benefit from MommaStrong! This can include physicians, NPs, PAs, PTs, OTs, chiropractors, bodyworkers, massage therapists, personal trainers, and many more.
How do I sign up?
Does it cost anything?
No! Our program is completely free to join. All we need is your email address so that we can send you digital materials you can pass along to your patients/clients, and so we can email you occasional updates about the happenings at MommaStrong (with your permission, of course!)
What is the benefit to me and my patients/clients?
The main benefit is that we provide you with a special code that will give your patients/clients 30 days of MommaStrong for FREE. After that, they will still receive the same introductory offer that we provide all of our members, which is $5/month for the first 3 months. Once that three months concludes, our regular pricing is $12/month. This also includes the ability to download an app on their mobile device or TV to make it easy to exercise at home.
As a clinician, you will also get free access to MommaStrong for 30 days to check out the program if you are not already familiar with us. This way you can determine if MommaStrong videos would be appropriate for your patients/clients.
We can also send you free brochures that include the 30-day offer code so you can easily hand them out in your clinic. Plus, you have the ability to email our physical therapist advisor, or even schedule a free 15-min Zoom session with her, if you have any questions about MommaStrong programming. If you would be interested in any of these options, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if my patients/clients can’t afford MommaStrong?
We have a unique program called Share the ShowUp which is designed to help members who want to continue our programming, but who are experiencing financial hardship. This fund comes entirely from donations from our current members. There is no application to complete if someone is in need of financial assistance from us; all they have to do is email email@example.com, and state “I want to show up, but I need help.” They will then be given 6 months of access to MommaStrong for free, and at the end of that 6 months they will have the option to extend their free membership. This can continue indefinitely if that is what the member needs.
Do you ever make custom videos or other materials for specific patient/client needs?
We already have a very large library of “quick fixes” and “longer fixes” to address various pain points and body issues ranging from low back pain to diastasis rectus abdominis. If you have a special request for a video you would like to see us make to better-address the specific needs of your clientele, please let us know!
Can I still join the program even if don’t regularly see pregnant and postpartum patients/clients, or if I am a male provider?
Yes! MommaStrong is intended to address the unique issues of primary caregivers throughout the lifespan, even into menopause. Even if your patients have not been pregnant or given birth, they can still benefit from MommaStrong, especially if they are primary caretakers of children. No one is excluded from our workouts or clinician program due to their sex or gender!
How soon can someone start your program postpartum?
We have a unique program called “Hazy Days” that is appropriate for anyone who has given birth, starting from day zero through 8 weeks postpartum. This program is in alliance with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommendations on postpartum exercise, and is very gentle. It is only 5 minutes per day, mainly focusing on exercises such as deep breathing, stretching, and isometrics in the early weeks. It then builds throughout the remainder of those first 8 weeks to match the needs of a healing postpartum body. Additionally, it has two separate tracks: one for complicated births, and one for uncomplicated births. After 8 weeks postpartum, members will phase into our New Momma workouts, which are appropriate from 2-12 months postpartum.
