The Baby Chick®: Pregnancy, Birth & Postpartum Expert


The pelvic floor is usually not something a person regularly thinks about. Unfortunately, it’s not something someone necessarily pays attention to until they experience a problem. When a woman becomes pregnant and has a baby, many women start to recognize just how important their pelvic floor is and that they may need to seek help. Pelvic floor health is not the sexiest topic, but it’s a vital one, especially for expecting women and mothers. And today’s guest, Dr. Marcy Crouch, is an expert discussing vaginas and the pelvic floor. She’s sharing her vast knowledge and experience and what all women need to know about pelvic floor health during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
