You’re standing in a grocery store, halfway through your shopping list, a crying newborn in your arms, with your rain boots full of pee... all because you sneezed.
It might sound ridiculous (especially to first-time moms) but that was me 5 years ago.
Despite all my mental notes about the quickest route to the bathroom from anywhere in the store, my body had its own plan and there was no stopping it.
So there I was—a grown woman trying to hide the fact that I’d peed my pants in Target.
This couldn’t be real right?
Despite being a women’s health clinical specialist who had been working in pelvic floor health for years, I was STILL unprepared.
I knew I needed to create a better way to recover from pregnancy and birth, for myself and every birthing person out there!
I’m here to make sure that you don’t end up in Target with your rain boots full of pee wondering, “Why didn’t anyone tell me it would be like this?”
Because it DOESN’T have to be like that.
I’m known as The Down There Doc on Instagram and TikTok where my videos have over 25 million views.
I’m also a contributor for Healthline.com and host of the No Mama Left Behind podcast with my friend Alyson.
I am a board-certified women’s health physical therapist who is working to elevate pregnancy and postpartum care for women everywhere.
I have helped THOUSANDS of my clients to stop living in silent pain and finally recover from the long-term effects of pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
Most importantly — I’m the mother of two beautiful boys myself. I know how busy, overwhelming, and chaotic things can get and how difficult it can be to make time for yourself because I’ve been there!
Pelvic floor problems don’t care how old you are! I’ve helped expecting and seasoned moms (and grandmothers!) successfully treat their pelvic floor issues... whether they have been around for 6 weeks or 42 years!
It’s time for the standard of care to change for pregnant and postpartum women. No more unanswered questions or doctors dismissing your symptoms. No more invalidating attitudes or statements like, “what do you expect? You just had a baby.”
You deserve understanding, answers, community, and solutions way beyond an unsatisfactory “drink some wine, you’ll be fine.”
Down There, Done Right provides all that and more because the problems you’re encountering are TREATABLE.
Prep your mind and body for labor, delivery, and speedy recovery.
Your guide to navigating the first day after labor and on into the first few weeks.
Clinically proven postpartum recovery program to help you heal faster, better, and return to the life you want.
Everything you’ll learn is 100% based on medical science and years of clinical experience. You’ll be doing what has worked for thousands of women before you.
Think of the pelvis as being the home to organs like the bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum. The pelvic floor muscles are the home’s foundation and act as the support structure keeping everything in place within your body.
You need a strong foundation or the house crumbles!
Pregnancy and delivery put a HUGE amount of strain on the pelvic floor, which leads to dysfunction — the inability to correctly relax, strengthen, and coordinate the muscles in your pelvic floor and tummy.
These issues don’t go away on their own, and can last a lifetime — studies show that the frequency of PFD increases with age, affecting more than 40 percent of women from age 60 to 79.
With proper pelvic floor rehabilitation, these symptoms can be treated and reduced, and in many cases, eliminated.
Women who receive proper pelvic floor muscle treatment are 5 times more likely to report a cure of urinary incontinence, have better sexual outcomes, and are less likely to tear or have an episiotomy.
These are problems that can last a lifetime...but they don’t have to.
Just because it’s common, doesn’t mean it’s normal!
Down There, Done Right is for moms who want to prepare for birth the RIGHT way, stop the leaks, have pain-free sex, rebuild abdominal strength, and feel like themselves again.
I’m talking about real-life, functional exercises, stretching, breath training, education, community, coaching, and best of all CERTAINTY in your pregnancy and postpartum journey.
Clients that have gone through my program experience less vaginal tearing, easier birth and recovery, less leaking, less pain with sex, a stronger core, and more confidence and joy in their postpartum bodies.
Having a baby is a BIG DEAL! It’s natural to have tons of questions, concerns, fears, hopes, and feelings surrounding your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey.
With all the information and advice out there, it can become overwhelming and you may feel like you don’t know where to turn or who to listen to.
Down There, Done Right will arm you with knowledge for birth and postpartum, decrease fear surrounding labor, minimize trauma and vaginal tearing, and improve healing.
You’ll have confidence entering into birth and be able to bounce forward, not backward after baby is here!

Right now we’re on a mission of adding 500 mamas to this amazing program and community. This program will be $399 by the end of the summer, but if you join early, we’re going to give you an amazing deal.

Let's talk about MOM GUILT for a minute...
I don’t know about you, but I have experienced this myself and had hundreds of my clients tell me the same thing.
The minute we become mothers, we think we need to become martyrs.
What do I mean?
The list goes on and on. For a lot of us, sacrificing our needs is the default and we feel like a bad mom if we don’t.
Trust me, I get it...
After I had my first baby, I felt bad about doing anything for myself—like I was being selfish.
A night out with my girls meant that I wasn’t home to rock my baby to sleep.
If I took time to go for a run, it meant that my newborn wasn’t getting my undivided attention.
I even felt bad spending money on a babysitter to go to a doctor’s appointment, because that money could have been used for something “more important” like organic baby food or a college fund.
I quit doing things I loved, stopped making plans and socializing, and postponed my goals.
But here’s what I realized...
You can’t really show up for your kids if you don’t show up for yourself.
We love our kids and we want them to have everything they could ever need, but that doesn’t mean that we have to sacrifice our own needs and well-being.
Repeat after me...
You deserve to take care of your physical, mental, and emotional health without feeling guilty.
Your kids deserve to see you take care of your physical, mental, and emotional health.
As women and mothers, we’re always putting ourselves 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or last, and we’ve been told that this is the way it should be since the beginning of time.
Part of our mission is to break this outdated way of thinking.
Great mamas like you are great because they are PRESENT. CARING. LOVING. NURTURING. They are teachers. They are managers. They are leaders. They are boo-boo kissers and tear wipers. They are living-room gymnastics coaches. They are friends and guides. They are professionals who add value in the workplace ON TOP of balancing everything at home.
Here’s the bottom line and our mission:
Great mothers fill their own cups so they have PLENTY left over to give to their families, communities, and work.
This is an investment for YOUR life to be happier, healthier, and more fulfilling.
Imagine yourself 4 years from now...
Postpartum lasts forever, but it doesn’t HAVE to be depressing and difficult. You only have one body so why not take care of it?
There will be THOUSANDS of dollars spent on your baby for things that will be left in the box, used for a short time, or regifted immediately. My kid wouldn’t even sleep in the damn $400 bassinet I bought... he hated it.
You’ve poured your heart, soul, and finances into getting everything your baby might need—the diaper bucket, the heated wipes container, the german pacifiers, the blankets, burp cloths, diaper bags, ergonomic travel strollers, and endless onesies.
It’s time to finally do something for YOU, Mama!
