Stefanie’s passion for women’s health started at an early age, in the form of studying pregnancy and childbirth. This passion is what led her to specialize in urogynecology after receiving a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. After graduation, she immersed herself in all things women’s health. After countless hours of continuing education courses and extensive training through the Barral Institute, she began utilizing visceral manipulation to help restore health and functionality within the female pelvis and abdominal viscera.

She feels strongly that the aches and pains, both emotionally and physically, that come before, during, and after pregnancy can be eased and prevented with gentle manual therapy, education, and guidance.

In this episode, we dive into the physiology of birth, the importance of education throughout birth an labor, and where visceral manipulation and physical therapy come into play.
