Meet Dr. Marcy Crouch

Hi! 👋 I'm Dr. Marcy, pelvic floor obsessed PT and your new BFF!
I have a Doctorate in Physical Therapy and am a Board Certified Clinical Specialist in Women’s Health Physical Therapy with over a decade of specialization in all aspects of pelvic floor dysfunction, pregnancy, and postpartum musculoskeletal issues.
As a mother of two amazing boys, I have dedicated the last 20 years to serving, empowering, and equipping women and the birthing community from birth preparation through postpartum recovery.

My mission is to set a new standard of physical health and wellness so that birthing persons everywhere have the necessary preparation, support, and knowledge to navigate pregnancy, labor, and recovery regardless of status or background.

Just a handful of the sites and influencers we’ve collaborated with:

Your questions answered.

If you have a question that isn’t covered below, send an email to hello@thedowntheredoc.com.
Unfortunately, most insurance plans in the United States will not fully cover common/necessary treatment for women’s health issues. However, every insurance plan is different so we encourage all participants to see if they can use their HSA plan to help pay for our programs as they may fit under the category of “wellness” or “preventative treatment.”
We have had great success supporting our Mamas through the online courses, monthly Q&A sessions, and online community. For Mamas who need a more personal touch, we also offer one on one Virtual Wellness Sessions that can help resolve additional questions or concerns.
If there is ever an instance where our doctors feel that you would benefit from seeing an in-person PT, we will help you find a reputable provider in your area. For most mamas, this isn't necessary.
The ideal time to start this program is while you are pregnant. However, this course is designed to help anyone who is going to or has had a baby. Whether you’re pregnant with your first baby, raising toddlers and teenagers, or you’ve graduated to grandma duty—this course can help.
Pelvic floor dysfunction doesn’t go away on its own, but it is treatable no matter what stage of life you are in!
Medical research shows that pelvic floor exercises are generally safe for you. However, if you are ever in a position where you are unsure, please consult with your provider. There are certain cases where a provider might want you to wait before you dive into one of our courses, and that’s okay! It’s never too late to start The DT Method and sometimes your body might need a little more time to heal before starting exercise.
ABSOLUTELY! Many of our mamas didn't find us until their second, third, or fourth pregnancy, and so on. We consistently have mamas telling us how much they wish they had known about these courses during their first pregnancy because it improved their experience and recovery so much.
Although a large portion of these courses are educational and do not require physical exertion, there are exercises that may not be safe for a high-risk pregnancy. If you are on pelvic rest or considered high risk, you will definitely need to get this cleared by your doctor. You should seek the advice of your physician before beginning any physical exercise regimen. However, there is plenty of material you will still benefit from even if you have to skip some of the stretches and exercises.
The DT method is designed to be used at any time during your postpartum journey, whether you’ve done PT before or not. It will teach you how to set the proper foundation and lay the correct groundwork to make sure you are moving forward THE RIGHT WAY after pregnancy and labor (no matter how long it's been).
These courses are meant for ALL women and birthing persons who want to prepare for birth the RIGHT way, stop the leaks, have pain-free sex, rebuild abdominal strength, and feel like themselves again.With 13 years of experience, Dr. Crouch has worked with thousands of clients both nationally and internationally, with 95% of them seeing improvement in their symptoms.
