Pelvic floor therapy

What is it the pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor groups together all the muscles that surround and support the external genital area of both men and women, between the tailbone (coccyx) and the pubic bone within the pelvis. 

During pregnancy, thanks to hormones, the pelvic floor softens and becomes more flexible to get ready for labor and birth.

6 weeks after giving birth, all the pregnancy hormones have left your body and it’s time to strengthen your pelvic floor! 

In the American culture, Kegel exercises replace pelvic floor therapy, but without proper guidance, it can do more harm than good. The goal of this therapy is to teach you how to take care of your perineum as well as show you how to adopt good habits.

The last session focuses on abdominal rehabilitation to help heal diastasis recti separation through breathing exercises. 

Pelvic floor therapy is also for anyone with symptoms such as bladder or fecal leakage, or pain during intercourse (during a maternity journey or not). 

In the comfort of your own home or in the Hexagon office, the first appointment lasts 1 hour and follow-up appointments 30 to 45 minutes. 

 

About me: 

My name is Garance. I am originally from France where I trained as a midwife between 2013 and 2018. 

I worked in a Parisian Public hospital for more than three years rotating between delivery rooms, triage and the postpartum wards as well as in London for 6 months.

In 2022, I moved to NYC following my husband.

Finding myself unable to work as a midwife in the US, I found myself drawn to the role of  the doula. It was the missing link between my skills as a midwife and my desire to accompany couples over a longer period of time.

While working as a midwife in France, I have delivered over five hundred babies.

I am also trained in sophrology, breastfeeding support, spinning babies and pelvic floor therapy. 

It was in London that I discovered hypnobirthing and thanks to Maeva’s mentorship (HypnoDoula Maeva), I now support women in labor with a hypnobirthing and mindfulness approach.

My aim as a doula is to give you evidence based information and emotional support that will help you make informed choices for yourself and your family, feel empowered, and trust your body and your instincts.
