Are there some topics that you tip toe around, hoping they won't impact you? Pelvic floor health is often one of these, but is hugely important to support in your preconception and pregnancy to avoid complications post birth.
When it comes to protecting your pelvic floor and your body physically throughout your pregnancy, it is important to advise with a specialist to best support your needs. To get this much needed conversation flowing, I've invited Women's health physiology Anna Scammell onto the podcast.

Anna combines her 14 years of clinical experience and evidence based knowledge to educate and empower women during their childbearing years.
