Are you a change maker?

Are you a professional who sees need to change the way we treat birthing persons and women? Are you unsatisfied with the lack of mentorship and guidance available for professionals like yourself? Are you HUNGRY for information, resources, and mentorship? Do you see how imperative it is to have an expert clinician at your disposal to give you advice and problem solving skills? Do you value collaboration, learning from colleagues, and having a strong network of providers to rely on?

Do you want to fight for women and change the standard of care for women and birthing persons?

Of course you do. That's why you're here.

Join Dr. Marcy Crouch

Marcy received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Southern California in 2010. She then completed a Women’s Health Residency program in Dallas, TX where she focused on all aspects of pelvic floor dysfunction, pregnancy, and postpartum musculoskeletal issues. She then obtained her WCS, which identifies her as Board Certified Clinical Specialist in Women’s Health Physical Therapy.

She is the mother of two amazing boys and has first-hand experience with pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. Marcy is a doctor dedicated to serving, empowering, and equipping women and the birthing community from birth preparation through postpartum recovery. Her personal 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.

What's Included

Join an elite group of clinicians who are ready to empower women and elevate the standard of care.

Thriving Mama Training™ is designed to bridge the gap from course to clinic, so you can take your clinical practice one step further, and be the one clients seek out.

Here's what you'll get:

12 week 100% online training program, with 11 hours of approved CEUs after the completion of the course. (value: $3,500)
These sessions cover the necessary information to make sure you are confident, up to date on the latest research, and have a plan that will work for your clients. This goes beyond a weekend con-ed course, with step-by-step guidance from Dr. Marcy. Included are lit reviews, case-studies, assessment and treatment strategies, and a didactic curriculum.

This 12-week program is centered around mentoring, guidance, and collaboration. We will review certain didactic topics as they pertain to the pregnant and postpartum client, as well as discuss current evidence, treatment, and assessment strategies. We’ll build upon your previous knowledge and experience as you build your caseload, see difficult cases, and position yourself as an expert in your community.

Plus these FREE bonuses:

Bonus #1: THREE 1 on 1 private calls with Dr. Marcy. (value: $800)
Most Women's Health clinicians are left to figure things out on their own. Guess what? Being on an island sucks when you're trying to treat patients, figure out what to do, build your caseload, and keep up with the latest techniques. Being a part of a collegial and supportive group of like-minded clinicians that you can rely on with a quick message is PRICELESS.
Bonus #2: Private group access for networking and problem solving. (value: $250)
It can feel isolating and overwhelming when you're one of the only pelvic health PTs at your clinic. This exclusive private group will ensure you have “at your fingertips” guidance and support from dr. Molly and dr. Marcy, as well as your fellow cohort members.
Bonus #3: Resource Library. (value: $1500)
Get everything you need to treat your pregnant and postpartum clients with confidence and success, build your caseload and market your practice, and have the latest research all in one place that you can download, take notes on, and easily reference. Patient friendly handouts, resources, and info sheets are already created and ready for you to personalize with your logo.
Bonus #4: Monthly Live Roundtable Sessions. (value: $750)
Join the ThinkTank of like-minded professionals and let's do a deep dive into the problems you are running into with your clients, discuss best practices, get advice, share victories and patient success stories, and brainstorm together.
Bonus #5: Lifetime Access to The DT Method Library. (value: $600+)
By being a member of Thriving Mama Training™, you'll have access to all the courses and online content that The DT Method releases. That means FREE access to courses, webinars, interviews, guest expert features, and other online expertise. You'll see firsthand how Dr. Marcy and The DT Method are elevating birth prep and postpartum care and you can use her strategies and methods for your own clients; easily and quickly.
Bonus #6: FOUR Guest Expert Trainings. (value: $800)
Learn from 4 field experts in exclusive video trainings only for members of Thriving Mama Training™.

Enrollment opens in December.

Your questions answered.

If you have a question that isn’t covered below, send an email to hello@thedowntheredoc.com.
What if I am a PT student with limited pelvic floor experience, but am EAGER to be a women's health PT?
Awesome! Welcome to the best niche in PT. We love PT students, and believe y'all are the next generation of change makers and DownThereDocs. Get in here! This will help build your knowledge base, give you mentorship, show you applicable treatment strategies you can apply now in your clinicals (ortho counts!) and set you up for success when you graduate. You'll hit the ground running.
What if I work in ortho and women's health and have only taken 1-2 con-ed classes?
That's great! Thriving Mama Training™ isn't a replacement for con-ed (you need those hours!) but it's designed for high level PTs who know the importance of having mentorship and extra information. TMT training is designed for the working PT who needs that something extra and doesn't like to feel like they are on an island with no support and no resources.
When can I start applying what I've learned in TMT?
NOW. This training is designed to bridge the gap between con-ed and actual practice. You'll have one-on-one guidance, group support, access to The DT Method & Dr. Marcy's decade+ experiences, and the trainings are easy, relevant, and effective. Start applying what you've learned immediately.
I am a PT with no background in women’s health or pregnancy and postpartum PT. Can I take this course?
ABSOLUTELY. Pelvic floor level 1 is not required, however, we do recommend that at some point in your training you supplement with a level one course, for in person competency for the internal portion.

Ready to elevate your status as a clinician and help your clients THRIVE?
