hey there


The term “pelvic floor health” has been thrown around a lot in the past few years and chances are that when you read or heard about it, there was a lot of talk about doing kegels.

But did you know that kegels are not always the right way to work on your pelvic floor? And did you know that the pelvic floor is closely tied to your breath, which means that focusing on how you breathe is really important?

It turns out that there’s a lot to learn about this group of muscles – especially for women who often face pelvic floor issues during or after pregnancy.

So in this episode of SHE, I spoke with pelvic floor physical therapist Dr. Mae Hughes about everything you need to know about the pelvic floor!
