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.

What is difficult is that there is no standardization for qualifying providers who wish to call themselves women’s health specialists, and there are many different approaches. Most pelvic floor therapists will have some connection or have taken classes from Herman and Wallace.

In my experience for myself and with my patients, I found that because of the lack of standardization, I never knew wha...

Below are some stats regarding Stress Urinary Incontinence that I feel are worth reading.  I had planned to add them to my FB Live, but feel they have more impact when read.  

There seems to be a disconnect between women and clinicians when describing symptoms.  Awareness is key and not all women understand that although Stress Urinary Incontinence can be a typical postpartum symptom....its not something we have to live with.  Its a symptom that can be pushed under the rug and excused due to lack of knowledge on the part of both the clinician and patient.

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.

Too often, common concerns such as occasional leaking urine, persisting pelvic pain, prolapse and abdominal weakness are met with limited options. An OB/GYN may offer surgery but may recommend against it if future pregnancies are desired or the mother is too young.
