Millions of women in the U.S. live with pelvic floor issues such as incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. Many of them suffer in silence, assuming their problem is a natural part of life or something that can’t be resolved without invasive surgery. We want to shine a light on these common conditions and help women get familiar with treatment options – some of which can be as simple as exercise and wellness.
