Introducing Baby In the Bedroom: An Eight Week Multi-Disciplinary Program for Urinary Leakage and Sexual Health for New Moms

Baby in the Bedroom is a program created to specifically address the tremendous effect childbirth has on both pelvic floor and intimate function. As many as 89% of new moms complain of urinary leakage and impaired sexual function.

In this 8 week pelvic floor and sexual function boot camp, we have created a comprehensive program to address pelvic floor healing as well as revive sexual function. The program starts with weekly e-stim pelvic floor treatments, bladder and bowel retraining guidance, and sexual medicine evaluation and treatment. Coordination of care with the urogynecologists at Washington Urology Associates is facilitated as needed.

Alongside medical treatments, we have partnered with renowned experts in their fields Kathe Wallace physical therapist, author of “Reviving Your Sex Life After Childbirth”, as well as the Gottman Institute, creators of the famed “Bringing Baby Home” program, from which we draw instruction for pelvic floor and relationship support for new parents.
Too many women experience lifelong detrimental consequences of childbirth that can be corrected with expert multi-disciplinary early intervention.
This program is covered by most insurances. Please ask your healthcare provider for a referral, or contact our office directly to learn more.
