Gosh, this is such a hard thing for me, But I will do my best to explain here

What is a Virtual Pelvic Wellness Session?

Work online with a physical therapist?

What?

Kind of sounds like an oxymoron right? 

I felt the exact same way,  March 2020.

If I Leak am I Weak?

Did you know that over 50% of elite female athletes and elite dancers who have not given birth leak urine while training? 

Shouldn't this cohort of females have the "strongest" pelvic floors?
