What happens when you go on a two year journey trying to heal your pelvic floor after birth? 🤔

Hayley tells us the story of how she ultimately was able to and chose to have a scar revision procedure to help find the relief she hoped for. 🥳

2️⃣ ALL OF THE THINGS she tried to help her body along in healing and the frustration in finding solid, evidence based, and useful guidance
3️⃣ The immense frustration she experienced in feeling pleasure in her body and the trash messaging that is handed to people with vulvas around sexual pleasure not being valuable or purely for our own selves
3️⃣ How she found the healthcare providers that were supportive
4️⃣ What the procedure itself entailed
5️⃣ How she treated the recovery immediately post-surgery
6️⃣ An update on how’s she is feeling in her body a few months after (hint: WONDERFUL! 🎉)
