A good starting place for searching out a trained pelvic flood therapist is through the Herman and Wallace foundation. Kathe Wallace from Seattle, WA and Hollis Herman from Boston, MA started the movement emphasizing the importance not just women’s health issues but offering training for medical providers who wish to specialize in women’s health.

Each woman comes into pregnancy and leaves childbirth with her own unique experiences and problems.  Therefore, each woman's recovery after delivery would benefit from a provider who can evaluate her specific needs and address her unique concerns.
