PLEASE NOTE: this episode is not for everyone and contains conversation about sex, traumatic birth, endometriosis and sexual trauma.
This bonus episode is a conversation with Dr. Amy Meehan who co-owns a company called The Revelle. The Revelle specializes in pelvic floor physical therapy before, during and after pregnancy. I’m a client of Amy’s and I wanted to share this conversation because it’s such a widely under-discussed treatment for problems that many women live with unnecessarily.
Amy earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy at the University of St. Augustine for Health Science. She has a bachelor’s degree in exercise science with a minor in biology. She has been in practice for over a decade.
