Season 1 Episode 7: Get to Know Your Pelvic Floor – An Episode for All Women with Andrea Plitz

Before I gave birth, I couldn’t tell you about my pelvic floor – period.

And I can definitely say that no one talked to me about my pelvic floor after the birth of my two children. Yet, as I learned when I sneezed and peed, this is a foundational piece to a woman’s health! For ALL women across the lifespan.

And I know I am not the only one who has sneezed and peed! Here’s what Andrea says … It is common. But it is NOT normal!

In this episode, I sit down with registered physiotherapist, yoga teacher, and mom, Andrea Plitz. She is an excellent practitioner and so informed  wealth of information – and by following her work on Instagram, she is frequently providing workshops for women, seeing clients one on one, and attending amazing training experiences that she shares. She is a trusted provider in the Ottawa community, and when I ask other women who they know or trust, her name is one that is mentioned frequently!

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The fundamentals of pelvic floor health for women
  • Learning to use your menstrual cycle to your advantage
  • The kegal! I ask Andrea to demystify this exercise and she walks us through how to do it – properly!
  • We talk about three different ways to get connected to your pelvic floor
  • When you need to see a pelvic floor therapist.

This episode is for ALL women across the lifespan. So before you think, “Pelvic floor health is a topic for new moms” tune into the episode! You will learn to access a part of your body that is so important to well-being!
