Show Notes

In this episode, I sit down with fellow pelvic health physiotherapist Tamarah Nerreter, to discuss:

  • How often should we poop
  • Signs of constipation
  • Why do we get constipated
  • What does long term constipation mean for our body
  • Physiotherapy approaches to treating constipation 
  • What can we be doing to start our kids with good bowel habits

Tamarah Nerreter, a physiotherapist since 2007 has a multitude of certifications in the areas of women’s health, perinatal care, diastasis, pediatric incontinence, prolapse, pelvic pain and the list goes on. She believes in a holistic, whole body approach, empowering the individual through education, treatment and exercise.
