Episode #39: Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy for Pre-Natal & Post-Natal Health
In this episode of The Women's Pelvic Health Podcast, I am joined by Erica Azzaretto Michitsch, a NYC based Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist (who has been my pelvic floor PT for the past several years). We discuss the crucial role that pelvic floor physical therapy plays in pre-natal and postpartum health, including how pelvic floor pt prior to delivery can help with an easier vaginal birth, what perineum stretching is, and the importance of breath-work throughout the entire pregnancy (and delivery) process. Erica also gives many pelvic health tools and tips that you can implement at home. Last but not least, she shares her own pregnancy/birth story with her first child, Benjamin, who she recently gave birth to.
