Do you even THINK about your pelvic health? Many of us don't; UNTIL something goes awry. And get this - leaking urine after giving birth is NOT normal!


Today on the show I speak with Teresa Luu, a Toronto-based physiotherapist specializing in women's health. Teresa has experience assessing and treating a broad range of clients from paediatrics to geriatrics; but developed a true passion for working in women’s health and now focuses on helping pregnant and post part persons improve their pelvic floor health


Today we talk about

- Why pelvic floor health SO important to consider when planning to become pregnant

- Why she thinks so many people dismiss this area of pre-post natal care

- What she sees common while treating second time mamas who didn't consider pelvic floor PT the first time around

- What women of "advanced maternal age" can do to support their pelvic floor health in pregnancy/post partum?

- And what is common but NOT normal when it comes to pelvic floor health!
