The Pelvic Floor Project

Melissa Dessaulles from Mommy Berries

This podcast is for anyone with a pelvic floor. Pssst….. everyone has a pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is a group of muscles responsible for controlling our bodily functions. I refer to myself as a physiotherapist for embarrassing issues. I routinely help clients address symptoms like incontinence, prolapse, diastasis, pelvic pain, intimacy issues and the list goes on. A theme that stands out to me is how little we learn about our private parts and the muscles surrounding. This podcast is for you if you are interested in learning more about your body. Focused on the female, I cover tops pertinent to puberty, athletics, pregnant, birth, postpartum recovery, menopause, surgery and so much more.I promise to share evidence based information through discussion with other health care experts in their field with the goal to showcase a holistic and empowering approach to taking care of the only body you will ever haveI hope you enjoy!
