Know your pelvic floor, own your birth + beyond

with Allyson Loupe

During pregnancy, it is important to understand what is going on with the pelvic floor. Maybe it has too much tension or perhaps it does not have enough. Understanding what is going on can help prepare for less discomfort and pelvic symptoms during pregnancy. It is also important to understand how the pelvic floor can affect the birthing process. We are joined by pelvic PT, Ally Loupe, who talks about how to best prepare the pelvic floor for pregnancy+birth. We also hear about her experience during her first pregnancy of hooking her own pelvic floor up to sEMG and getting in every possible birth position to see where her pelvic floor was at most rest. She ended up giving birth in that very position and birth without a tear. So many important nuggets of wisdom in this episode on the prenatal pelvic floor.

Dr. Allyson Loupe, DPT is a Physical Therapist in Moose Lake, MN with over 8 years of experience. She specializes in Women’s Health and Pelvic Health PT. Ally’s passion in physical therapy is for patient advocacy and education. She loves being connected with the community and spending time outdoors hiking, kayaking, and exploring with her daughter, husband and their two dogs!
