Susan works to bridge the gap working with an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to guide women through their journeys including pregnancy and postpartum wellness care, physical therapy to treat common but NOT normal issues such as leaking, prolapse, diastasis associated with pregnancy/postpartum, pelvic pain, pain with intercourse and other issues that limit a woman’s ability to do things they love.
