The Pelvic Floor Project

Melissa Dessaulles from Mommy Berries

Pregnant and overwhelmed with information and how to apply it to yourself? Looking to have an empowered birth experience? New mom and disappointed by the lack of guidance to help you recover? Wanting to learn about how to nurture the only body you will ever have? This podcast is FOR you! I'm a mom of two, an entrepreneur and a physical therapist. As a mom I have experienced the lack of support during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. This is what lead me to further my education and develop a special interest in helping women. In this podcast I am going to talk to a wide range of health care practitioners who work specifically with women to bring you evidence based information that you can put into practice immediately. I am excited to see the changes we can bring.
