If we could put a billboard up on the interstate it would probably include the message in today's show as a P.S.A. for all women to see!
The majority of the women who've worked with us have been guilty of doing at least one of these things.
They always tell us, "I wish I would have known this sooner!" or "Why didn't anyone tell me about any of this before?" That's why it's our mission to get this information into as many women's hands as possible - because it can make such a big difference in your journey!
Chances are, you probably fall into 1 of 2 categories when it comes to these sorts of issues.
1 You know something's wrong with your body, and you're searching for answers and help.
2 You have been diagnosed with prolapse and you're looking for relief that doesn't involve invasive treatments or surgery.
Either way, you've come to the right place.
These are the 6 Signs that you are dealing with Uterine Prolapse - whether you've been diagnosed or not.
Because prolapse looks and feels different for every woman dealing with it, you may only have a few of these issues going on, or you may have more.
But there's one thing that remains the same: navigating these life-altering issues is a big deal, and it can feel incredibly isolating and overwhelming (because it's not exactly the first thing anyone talks about).
It's common to feel like maybe you're the only one dealing with any of it. Or maybe you've had a friend, a family member, or even a medical professional try to normalize or...
Here are the top 6 signs that your pee issues might be prolapse.
PLUS: easy, actionable steps you can start today to begin taking back control of your body and your life.
Prolapse affects at least 52 million women in this country. It can be so overwhelming, and it is always life-altering. We want to help by breaking it down:
What it is
What it feels like

What you can do about it
Special? Yes, very much so!
However... although the pelvic floor is treated like it's some kind of "different" sort of muscle group, the truth is that it is "just" regular skeletal muscle - just like the rest of our muscles!
Why does this matter? Tune in to find out... we think you'll really like the good news we're sharing today!
It's been an emotional time, and it only feels right to share that with you - openly, honestly, and vulnerably.
We've been reflecting on our transitions into motherhood and the challenges we've faced.
Know that if you struggle to ask for help, you're not alone.
Here are our stories of tears, fears, and struggle - and how we learned to ask for help.
OK ladies - It's time for our first online rant!
We really hit a nerve with the bold statement we made to Stop Doing Kegels.
We were asked for the proof behind our claims. (Hint: We've got it. And the personal stories too ).
Did you know that doing kegels could actually be making things worse?
In this show we explain why kegels are NOT effective (gasp we know that's different than what you have been told), and why there is a better way to get the results you want and deserve!
Would you strengthen your bicep by holding your arm still and just squeezing and relaxing the muscle? Um, no! It makes no sense to strengthen the pelvic floor that way either.
Doing 100's of kegels isn't the answer and won't give you the results you're looking for - like no more peeing on yourself, less pelvic pressure, or stopping even more embarrassing things like gas leaks.
And kegels can actually make those issues you're trying to get rid of even worse. Sometimes the issues come from an over-tight pelvic floor, a situation definitely made worse with too much kegeling.
Are you wondering, "Why is this out-dated and ineffective exercise still recommended by medical professionals?" Hint: it's not because they...
