Pelvic Health Made Simple

"Peeing When You Sneeze is a brilliant women's health podcast featuring Sackville NB physiotherapist and certified lymphedema therapist, Ramona Kieser. If you are not acquainted with the pelvic floor, fasten your seatbelt as you are in for a tour-de-force analysis! Delivered in reassuring conversational-style with energetic podcast host April MacKinnon, Kieser thoughtfully guides you--using precise and accessible language--on a fascinating (sometimes humorous!) journey on a topic that is too often relegated to the margins of physical health and wellness. For the many women (including men and partners) who experience one of the many variants of pelvic discomfort and pain, this is a must hear podcast that will not only improve your pelvic health IQ, but also leave you reassured about today's smart and easy-to-access treatment options. Yes, you'll walk away feeling HOPEFUL and feeling FREE!"
