I’m so thankful that my midwife suggested pursuing pelvic floor PT after the birth of my first baby and recommended Jill at WellWomanPT. From the beginning Jill was incredibly kind and knowledgeable, instilling confidence and teaching about the different mechanisms of the pelvic floor. She would also continuously reminding me that I was in control, that I could ask her to back off if I ever felt uncomfortable, which allowed us to build a solid trusting relationship. Jill utilizes a wide variety of modalities for in-person visits as well as exercises and instructions for “homework”. I am so glad I made the decision to work with Jill. She helped me regain my confidence and function after a difficult birth and that is priceless to me.
One Happy Momma!
