    There’s a ton of amazing pelvic / women’s heath PTs out there who treat women during pregnancy & postpartum. There’s probably a great, qualified PT near you… she shared quality advice & I’m so glad it’s being talked about. I am all about empowering women. But these are things being taught & accepted within the pelvic PT community so I’m not sure why she doesn’t think many others do this?! Unfortunately, I think it was a huge diservice to not share right away in the beginning how to find a PT near you:

    I’m a pelvic PT in rural,  northern WI and even in my little area there’s multiple qualified PTs within an hour radius.
