The Path to Pelvic Wellness
More than just kegel things...
You are a Rockstar, Queen, Superstar of doing all the things
Family, kids, work, keeping the house running, meal prepping…you’ve got a lot on your plate. And knowing you… you still do your best to take care of your family and give them what they need.
Now when it comes to your health…
taking care of that can be a whole different story
When it comes to your health (specifically your pelvic health)...
You Google, ask FB groups, see multiple specialists and still feel uneasy about the information you are finding.
There is a huge gap between finding what is right and advocating “what’s right” for you!
What was your first impression when you...
“had the talk”
got your first period
wanted to have sex but had no idea what went where
had to go to the gynecologist (The Scary Doctor is what we called it in my house growing up)
called out of school for the 10th time in the year due to cramps
cancelled on friends because you had something weird going on down there
put on the pill and expected it to clear your acne, eliminate your cramps and keep you babe free
recently gave birth and did not expect your vulva to look like a bruised peach
did not get pregnant in 1 month like your friends
had your babies and now the whole bottom of you is falling out
What if I told you there is a community who can help you navigate these steps on the path where it has been taboo to speak out! Answer those concerns?
Or at the least tell you there are options!
There is more to your wellness than just taking meds, kegel things, doing exercises and waiting around for things to change...
Here are some pelvic facts you didn't know that you probably should.
Did you know that…
it’s not normal to pee your pants, have pain with sex, or have indigestion when your constipated.
your low back pain could actually be a sign your pelvic organs have moved after labor or with menopause.
the “leakage” you are experiencing is not urine at all; it could be signs you are ovulating or potentially have an infection
it is OK to want a second opinion from another therapist or to be prepared for your next session armed and dangerous pelvic knowledge bombs.
you can prepare for your pregnancy to really know your physical body, more than taking a birth class
you have options and there is more than a OBGYN to guide your pelvic health and there is no need to feel overwhelmed of what to do next.
other providers like acupuncturist, nutritionists, functional medicine practitioners also understand your pelvic health, but just view it from a different lense.
kegel exercises are not the answer to everything as many times our pelvic muscles need to be strong and supple
Your body is incredible! Your pelvic bowl is an intelligent, beautifully dynamic and strong base of your core.
But there is a lot of watered-down ideas about our pelvic health...
Here’s why you may still be experiencing frustration with your entire path to figuring out what’s going on “down there"
The Healthcare System is Wonky
Yes, on average doctors have less than 7 minutes with you to hear your story. You get a paper to go to another provider and the communication ends there.
Everyone's Body is Different
There is no recipe that fits all. Your health is unique from the day you are born throughout your entire lifespan
Time is Precious
It is hard to prioritize health when you have only so many minutes in the day. Searching FB groups and texting friends takes time and do you really find the provider right for you!
You deserve the opportunity to advocate, navigate and collaborate your pelvic health and wellness with a community of women alongside you.
That’s why I want to introduce you to...
The Path to Pelvic Wellness
A community that helps women navigate their pelvic health wherever they are on the path of womanhood…to advocate, navigate and collaborate together
You Belong on the Path
This program is open to all women who experience the everyday cycles of being a woman!
This is for everyone on any journey along the path including pregnancy, fertility, postpartum, pre-post menopausal changes and every where in between.
If you have a pelvis, then this is for you!
We walk with as a dedicated community to help ease your path to pelvic wellness one step at a time
We want you to fearlessly ask questions, be involved in your pelvic health and feel confident without being judged by your doctor or family members.
There are plenty of options to better your health outside of medication, surgery, and the typical insurance "allowed" 12 visits of pelvic therapy. We want to introduce you to other providers who can support you on your path
Our hope is to connect women from all walks of life to share their stories, experiences, and to encourage one another on the path of bettering their health in body, mind and spirit.
what you will find inside the path to pelvic health
Be active, confident and comfortable moving in your body no matter what path you are on. Short 5-10 minute mindful movement session are curated each month where you can grow in your physical understanding of the body and never feel limited during the changing cycles of the body with rules or recipes for movement.
In the Breath Life Healing Circle led by Dr. Miriam @miriam_bouve and Dr. Amanda of @breathelifept, we’ll join and heal together. Through a combination of pelvic-centered tools, including energy work, visualizations, and sharing of wisdom–we’ll explore the heavy, painful energies of our time, while reconnecting to the beauty and vitality of our spiritual, energetic, and physical feminine bodies.
We know some times you just want to run by someone, "Is this normal?", Well, we have your answers to understanding your leaky bladder, to why sex hurts to how breathing alone can help ease the fears of what's going on down there. Find the answers immediately at your fingertips.
Let’s talk about it all…our team will sit down with a local practitioner who understands pelvic health. You probably did not realize that more providers know about pelvic health, but view it from a different lens. For example, did you know acupuncture is beneficial for …..pelvic wellness. Or did you know you can use Botox for your pelvic muscles if they are the cause of pelvic pain or pain with sex?
Ask anything! Nothing is off the table and there is no need to feel uncomfortable. Our care team including physical therapists and nurses will answers your questions to help you advocate for yourself at your next doctors appointment or where to turn next on your path.

For the first time in more than 11 years, my tailbone didn't crack when I got up.
I've been dealing with tailbone pain since I was pregnant with my firstborn over 11 years ago. I've struggled with severe pubic pain. It's been two days, and it STILL HASN'T CRACKED. She warned me it may need to be adjusted more due to years of settling in the wrong place, but guys... at least I know it's FIXABLE. I didn't even know it was fixable!!!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I absolutely love Dr. Amanda and her team. They have been a key component to my abdominal and pelvic recovery. Dr. Amanda truly makes you feel comfortable, listens and is constantly finding ways to make your therapy and recovery pleasant and beneficial to you. I learn so much from her and for the first time ever, I can truly say, I'm headed in the right direction. I'm so thankful to have found her and her practice. I can't thank you enough!
Beyond grateful for Breathe Life Physical Therapy!! So personable, professional, and truly care about what they do!! I have been going since post birth and truly see a difference and ALL women SHOULD be referred for pelvic PT! Forever grateful & thankful to Dr Becca for being a great PT and also for being a great listener too ! :) 110% recommend !
OMG where do I begin?! In every way…I can be intimate w/out pain, do yoga w/out pain…not to mention the fact that Im actually even aware of my pelvis and its needs…how it connects to my entire rest of my body. Its changed my life!
We know and understand the frustration, the perseverance and the patience it takes to just keep going on any wellness journey. From fertility to hormonal health, we can truly say we have been there. Like you searching, waiting, praying and hoping for the next "right" thing. This is why we want other women to feel empowered to advocate, navigate and collaborate with other women and know their are options.
There is so much more to our pelvic health and overall wellness than what is on social media, what you get from the 5 min specialist appointment. We are here for you, walking with you on the path. Each of our paths may be different, we may wear different shoes, have rocky or smooth paths, but ultimately we are better when we are encouraged on our journey.
My goal is to meet you where you are on your health journey.
We all struggle with a health crisis or uncomfortable body changes at some point in our lives. I want to support you through your journey to give YOU the tools you need to feel and move better. Knowledge leads to confidence within yourself and allows you to breathe life.
Let's Walk Together!
