Dr. Chelsea's Story
My story began with the birth of my first son.
I was already a physical therapist at this point with some training in pelvic floor work but not currently practicing in the specialty. We had a tough apartment home birth experience. It was a long labor, but it all made sense when he was born a hefty 9 pounds, 8 oz baby boy. As a PT, I had falsely assumed I would be immune to impairment or pelvic floor dysfunction. I was soon proven very wrong, as I suffered for six months with chronic pelvic pain and a laundry list of pelvic floor issues.
