My personal vision is to continue to increase the knowledge about the benefits of pelvic health therapy for peri partum and post partum individuals. My current roles as an advanced clinician and program director for a WH residency have helped prepare me for the task in participating in a pregnancy and post partum interest group where pelvic health professionals can collaborate on ideas and combine resources to better support the pregnancy and post partum clients . The Section on Women’s Health provides a supportive professional environment and the most updated resources to help better serve our clients with peripartum and post partum dysfunction and being able to assist with the SOWH PPSIG would be rewarding
