PODCAST: My Personal Healing Journey

Peter, one hour old

Pelvic floor physical therapist, and Restorative Exercise specialist Susan McLaughlin interviewed me recently about my difficult postpartum healing process, and lessons learned since through my doula work.

Spoiler alert: my success had nothing to do with kegels.

Susan is a gem of wisdom in the realm of whole body alignment, pregnancy and childbirth, and pelvic floor health. I recommend listening to other episodes of her podcast, and subscribing to her blog. (No kickbacks here!)

Listen to her interview with me here, and learn about:

  • Truly integrated healing strategies (i.e. calf stretches to stop urinary incontinence)
  • Patience and compassion in the healing process
  • Alignment and movement as the health solution to life away from nature
  • Common alignment-related symptoms of pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period
  • The groundbreaking work of biomechanist Katy Bowman
  • The magic of the psoas release

Keep watching for an upcoming post with links to my favorite childbirth preparation and postpartum healing practices.
