We all pee ourselves a little after having kids and it’s totally normal, right? Sure, it’s common… but it actually isn’t normal.

Chances are your OB didn’t sit you down at your first prenatal appointment to discuss the importance of keeping your pelvic floor healthy and there’s an even higher chance they never talked to you about how urinary incontinence, at any level, isn’t normal after baby.

So what is normal and how do we take care of our pelvic floor?

In this episode, I sit down with Dr. Sara Reardon from The Vagaina Whisperer, to talk about your pelvic floor. Dr. Sara Reardon PT, DPT, WCS is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Board-Certified Women’s Health and Pelvic Floor Therapist, and mom of 2. She is the founder of The Vagina Whisperer, an online platform for pelvic floor health and the owner of NOLA Pelvic Health

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The importance of normalizing correct terminology and the care/treatment of our pelvic floors (5:30)
  • What the pelvic floor is (6:30)
  • Common pelvic floor issues during pregnancy (8:30) and postpartum (13:00)
  • The myth that “leaking is normal” (17:15)
  • Common mistakes surrounding bladder health (19:15)
  • Pain with sex (21:30)
  • What a visit with a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist might look like (22:45)
