Postpartum is FOREVER
Postpartum is FOREVER
🌸 Postpartum is Forever is meant to make you stop and think twice. Most women don’t really consider what is happening with their pelvic health until there is a problem. Preventative care is more important than ever so why not address the issue before it becomes one? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👋🏻 I am Dr. Papa, better known to my patients as Dr. Jess. I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy, specializing in helping women to restore their pelvic health so that they can get back to enjoying all the things an active, healthy woman should. Exercising, laughing with friends and family without fear of leaking, and yes, even enjoying sex again without having pain or fear of doing damage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🤰🏻 It is my hope that I will reach an even larger audience through the content of this book. I believe all women deserve the best care, from themselves, from their family and friends, and of course, from their doctors. My 🎙 podcast, Stay Healthy New England, and my 💻 e-course, Conquer Mystery Pain, aim to encourage those with chronic pain or who are plain curious about their health to educate themselves through multiple avenues. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌸 Womanhood is a sisterhood and I invite each and every one of my readers to use what I have learned over the course of my career as a resource to better your lives. I understand that pelvic health is a very personal subject, and some people may not feel comfortable talking about it right away. That’s exactly why I’ve created this book, to get the conversation started! 🗣

The Stress-Sex Connection with Dr. Jill McDevitt
The Stress-Sex Connection with Dr. Jill McDevitt
Chronic stress has been linked to problems with female reproduction. Women can also be victims of the stress-sex connection. After all, sex for women is not only a physical, but an intensely emotional experience. And just as it is for men, there’s not a more powerful aphrodisiac for women than the brain. It’s not surprising, then, that women can often condition themselves to think of sex in a negative way, form habits that prevent them from enjoying sex, and develop spontaneous stress responses that trigger automatic physical reactions. Learn 5 Key Self - Care Tips to Undo Stress Before it Wreaks Havoc on Your Physical, Mental and/Emotional Well-being.
