Pelvic Floor

I didn’t truly understand much about my pelvic floor until many years after I gave birth. I would pee my pants on every run for years after I had my girls. It wasn’t until I strengthened the right muscles that it stopped and I wished I had learned how to fix my pelvic floor weakness sooner.

This week, I’m speaking with Dr. Danielle Bailey, a pelvic floor physical therapist, about all things related to pelvic floor – nothing is too embarrassing or off limits.

Did you know that women of any age, regardless of whether they have ever been pregnant or gave birth vaginally or via c-section can struggle with pelvic floor dysfunction? Or that many uncomfortable symptoms that women deal with daily are caused by dysfunction of the pelvic floor? I’m talking incontinence, urgency or frequency of urination, pain in the back, hip or tailbone, constipation, diarrhea, joint discomfort, pain during intercourse… the list goes on.

In this episode, Dr. Bailey explains the pelvic floor anatomy and function. We talk about what symptoms warrant a visit to a physical therapist, what to expect during the first visit, whether it’s ever too late to seek help, whether Kegel exercises are still being recommended to women, and even her thoughts on the Squatty Potty.

I learned a lot and I think you will too! This is a must-listen episode for all women. You know I’m a big advocate of moms prioritizing their health and Dr. Bailey shares so much practical advice about this area of our body.
