A woman’s body goes through many changes during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. One of those changes is her pelvic floor. As a baby grows in the womb, the organs around it move to make room for the baby. This causes the uterus, intestines, and bladder to place extra pressure on the pelvic floor. And whether you had a vaginal birth or a cesarean birth, the pelvic floor after pregnancy and childbirth can potentially cause issues; urinary incontinence, pooping problems, painful sex, organ prolapse, and more! None of this is fun, which is why it’s so important to heal your pelvic floor after baby.

Today, we’re chatting with Dr. Sara Reardon, the Vagina Whisperer. Dr. Reardon is a Physical Therapist, a board-certified women’s Health and Pelvic Floor Therapist, and a mom of two. In 2006, Dr. Reardon created her business, the Vagina Whisperer, so women could finally get the care and attention they deserve regarding pelvic floor health. She’s an expert in her field (watch her TEDx Talk on Rethinking Postpartum Care here), and we are so grateful to have her on our show.

In this episode, Dr. Reardon shares with us how to heal your pelvic floor after a baby and everything that comes with that. She believes we shouldn’t be normalizing pelvic floor problems — instead, we should be normalizing pelvic floor conversations. We couldn’t agree more! And this is why we had this conversation with her to learn more.
