Fertility & Coming Home to Your Body with Emily Everton PT DPT Fringe Fertility Podcast with Kerry Hinds

    • Alternative Health

This episode is packed full of so many fertility tips - it’s hard to know where to start! If your relationship with your body isn’t perfect - then this episode is for you. So basically all of us! 

I’d especially encourage those who have a relationship with disordered eating, missed periods, pelvic floor dysfunction, unexplained or secondary infertility, and endometriosis to listen - but truly if you’re dealing with fertility and fertility treatment - you will benefit from this episode.

Today’s guest has created a beautiful approach to healing our relationships to our bodies. It is composed of many different techniques, personal experience, and knowledge.

Emily Everton is a holistic Women’s Health Doctor of Physical Therapy and founder of Embody Physical Therapy & Wellness, in Hopkinton, MA. 

Emily specializes in Orthopedic and Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy, and is especially passionate about all things menstrual health, fertility, and perinatal care. Emily is a certified Mercier Fertility Specialist and incorporates Mercier Therapy, a deep pelvic organ mobilization technique, into her practice to help women with a variety of conditions including pelvic pain and fertility challenges. 

In addition to her work as a PT, Emily is also a Women’s Health coach primarily supporting women with Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (missing periods) and irregular menstrual cycles. In her coaching she helps women restore ovulation, get their period back, regulate their menstrual cycles, and assist with fertility.

Though Emily’s work was initially inspired by her own lived experience with disordered eating, orthorexia, RED-S (relative energy deficiency in Sport), Hypothalamic Amenorrhea, infertility, and a poor relationship with her body…she is consistently inspired by the wonderful girls and women she is so fortunate to support on a daily basis.

Here’s what we talked about today’s episode


What is hypothalamic amenorrhea and RED-S 


What we interpret as the body not functioning is actually a hint from the body - leading us to the right area to explore and balance


The Vagus nerve and fertility


Why the pelvic floor matters when we’re talking about fertility


The pelvic floor and egg retrievals


A story about releasing my tongue tie and my pelvic floor response!


What is Mercier Therapy and who is it for 


Why you may want to throw away your tight jeans


Overall inspiration for how to live in your body in a connected way



I loved having Emily on show! She has a tremendous depth of knowledge around the body and how to cultivate healing in a holistic and transformative way.  Her lived experiences inspire her work and you can feel her passion through the airwaves!
