Why Pelvic Floor Health Matters in Menopause


 

Returning guest, Kassie Dewitt is on today talking all about pelvic floor health and why creating healthy pelvic floor habits matters for menopausal women! I never really thought too much about this until recently while I was in perimenopause and I had lower back pain. I went to a pelvic floor therapist in Birmingham and that’s when I started learning the importance of caring for my pelvic floor. Following Kassie on Instagram is always teaching me things I didn’t know before as well.

Kassie is a doctor of occupational therapy with a specialty in pelvic floor rehabilitation and pelvic floor function. As with many of my guests, her mess became her message when at 16 she started having pelvic floor dysfunction. Her personal journey in finding alternative ways to find pelvic floor health.

Some signs and symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction are leaking bladder, unexplainable lower back pain, painful intercourse, frequent need to go to the bathroom, difficulty urinating or having bowel movements or feeling like your bowel movements are not complete.

If you have issues with leaking urine, Kassie has an incredible course for that called Urine Good Company. It is an 11 module self-paced online course. In it, you learn how to master appropriate bladder habits and routines. Kassie teaches you how to control the urgency and frequency by being the boss of your bladder.

I too, struggled in my late 40s when I hit peri-menopause! I was experiencing all those not-so-fun physical changes in my body, as well as mental and emotional fatigue. What worked for me before was not working anymore. 

And the mainstream wellness advice I was following was not for women my age but for women years younger. I also realized very quickly that there is no one formula that works for all women. We are all different and need a customized approach. This aha moment was the first step to my transformation…
