What is Pelvic Floor Therapy?
Pelvic floor physical therapy is a treatment to help address pain, weakness, and dysfunction in the pelvic floor muscles. The type of therapy prescribed will depend upon the symptoms you’re experiencing. For example, some symptoms will require relaxing and lengthening of the muscles, while others may require strengthening the muscles.
This treatment can be used to treat pelvic floor dysfunction and the symptoms so often associated with it. Some symptoms that can be improved with pelvic floor physical therapy are:
Urinary problems, such as:
Urinary incontinence
Urinary frequency
Urinary urgency
Painful urination
Difficulty stopping or starting urinating
Difficulty fully emptying the bladder
Bowel problems
Fecal incontinence
Straining or experiencing pain during bowel movements
Unexplained pain
Pelvic pain
Pain in the genital area
Rectal pain
Pain during intercourse
If you have any of these symptoms or have a diagnosis of interstitial cystitis (IC), pelvic floor therapy might be right for you.

Our society often does not provide space for processing the deeply important experience of birth. Whether you experienced a joyous or traumatic delivery of your baby, there is no denying that this experience can deeply change your identity. In this workshop we will use writing, art, sharing, and discussion to explore the various stages of your personal birth story and what it means to your transition to parenthood. All experiences and emotions are welcome, and you don’t need to be a writer or artist to participate! Sharing is encouraged but not required. 

Food & Mood: What we eat impacts how we feel

This wellness workshop is all about perinatal nutrition and its relation to perinatal mental health. Come learn the latest evidence-based recommendations plus practical tips regarding how our food, especially during pregnancy, can shape mental wellness during postpartum and beyond. Led by Midwife and Nutrition Therapist Colleen Forbes: www.homemidwiferycare.com/nutrition

Processing the Postpartum Transition through Writing and Art

In this workshop we will use writing, art, sharing, and discussion to explore the various stages of that transition. All experiences and emotions are welcome, and you don’t need to be a writer or artist to participate! Sharing is encouraged but not required. Childcare is available.
