Pregnancy and childbirth have effects the female musculoskeletal system. Formore than 30 years, I have been studying the research and providing the evidence based care for women during pregnancy and postpartum. I am an expert in caring for low back pain, pelvic girdle pain, and pelvic floor symptoms during pregnancy and postpartum, and I am especially interested in helping women with hyper-mobility syndrome diagnoses(EDS/HSD), and women with multiple gestation pregnancies, whom I believe should have a qualified pelvic physical therapist on their care team throughout pregnancy and postpartum. You must be a Mayo Clinic patient to request a consult with me.
