Mommy Diary podcast

The host of the Mommy Diary podcast, Angela Kim, recently reached out to me for a wide ranging interview on prenatal and postpartum pelvic floor health, and I was glad to spend this valuable time with her. A link to the full podcast is below.

Heather Jeffcoat

The secret's out: peeing your pants after birth does not have to be your new state of normal.

Yes, you read that correctly. I was just as surprised as you to learn that physical therapy can be the answer, and my guest, Dr. Heather Jeffcoat, is the expert. Heather is the owner of Femina Physical Therapy with 3 Los Angeles locations. She is pilates-certified and a certified fascial stretch therapist. Today she's providing us with valuable knowledge on the functions of the pelvic floor and the importance of it's health.

During this episode, Heather exploits myths about vaginal pain and the benefits of pelvic health. This is very important because she stated 9 out of 10 women have pain during sex after birth. There is no doubt that pelvic floor physical therapists are the best kept secret in medicine for moms.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Normalized postpartum issues that really aren't normal
  • How pelvic floor examinations are done by physical therapists
  • Pain during sex after childbirth
  • The four functions of the pelvic floor
  • Symptoms treated by pelvic floor physical therapists

      Femina PT (née Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy) has been such an answer to prayer, i'm so glad I found them! I've been struggling with vaginismus my whole life, but didn't have a name for it until about 6 or 7 months ago. Even once I did have a name for it though, I didn't know where to begin in getting help. My OB/GYN had me get a set of dilators, but I couldn't even insert the smallest one by myself. Most times I tried I just ended up frustrated and in tears. I felt really alone, like I...
