To Kegel or not to Kegel? How current is your knowledge of pelvic health and recommended interventions? This virtual workshop will review how pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period can impact the pelvic floor. Learn how nurses can educate and support women in maintaining pelvic health.

Although common, pelvic health concerns do not have to be suffered in silence. Pelvic floor muscle function can be related to low back and tailbone pain, leaking when sneezing and jumping, and painful sexual intercourse. This virtual workshop will review how pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period can impact the pelvic floor. 

Led by Larissa Tutert, a physiotherapist with additional training in pelvic health, this webinar will:
·         Update your knowledge on how pelvic health varies throughout childbearing years
·         Discuss nursing care affecting pelvic health including labour/birth support and exercise instruction
·         Explain the role of the physiotherapist in optimizing pelvic health

Larissa Tutert, Physiotherapist, works at the Dovigi Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Clinic, a multidisciplinary centre inside Mount Sinai Hospital. She completed her Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto, and has undergone additional training in the areas of male and female pelvic floor health, orthopaedic manual therapy, and Neurofunctional Medical Acupuncture. Larissa has provided physiotherapy care to the dancers of Canada’s National Ballet School, and currently instructs the Pelvic Health Workshops for the Prenatal Education Department at Mount Sinai Hospital.
