Coaches, this informative episode is a must listen. Today I have the pleasure of sharing an interview with Dr. Rachel Parrotta, a physical therapist out on Long Island. During this conversation, we dove deep into Rachel's specialty: Pelvic Health. As a mother of two, I was eager to unpack the topics of pregnancy, birth and postpartum care with Rachel.
Rachel leads us through a discussion on anatomy and less discussed topics such as prolapse, what its symptoms are, and who the right professionals are to seek help with for it. Pelvic health is a topic that applies to all genders, but it is not frequently discussed openly, and I'm pumped to have Rachel joining us for this episode.
You'll hear us talk about:
- How you can help and support moms through their pregnancy.
- What a mother can do to prepare for pregnancy and birth.
- The differences and symptoms of both hypertonic and hypotonic pelvic floors.
...and so much more!
Don't forget to leave us a review on Apple Podcasts.
