Hello to all! So much has been happening since our last blog post including a logo change and a new office space... what can I say... we've been busy!
What I have found myself doing so much lately though is having the conversation with others in the community about pelvic health, what issues may be associated and why it is important to get help.

It’s the season of love- SEXY time!
Many will be getting their “swerve” on this Valetine’s day week (yeah to pregnant and post-partum clients) but for many Post-partum moms it’s not that easy. For many, they dread it!
First off for most women, sex is NOT at the forefront of their mind…their newborn is!

Not to mention, scar tissue which can adhere to and cause restrictions with the fascia of the abdominal muscles and those of the pelvic floor.
