Episode #102: Kim Vopni + Pelvic Floor Health

Welcome to the first episode of my women’s reproductive health series! I’m thrilled to be kicking it off and sharing this resource with all of you. As women, it is so important we understand what is happening in our bodies and there simply are not enough people talking about this. The resources are there, it’s just about accessing them and understanding what it all means for us.

For the first episode, I invited Kim Vopni, a pelvic floor and women’s empowerment coach onto the show to discuss the importance of the pelvic floor and how to take better care of it. Most women are not educated about the pelvic floor and don’t worry about theirs until a problem arises, however there is so much you can do for your pelvic floor preventatively.

On episode #102 of the That's So Maven podcast Davida is chatting with Kim Vopni from Pelvienne Wellness all about the pelvic floor and how to take better care of it.

Today on the show we’re discussing:

  • Kim’s story and how she become a pelvic floor coach
  • What the heck is the pelvic floor and where is it?
  • Issues that can arise with your pelvic floor
  • Exercises for taking care of your pelvic floor
  • The pelvic floor and pregnancy- what to do pre and post?
  • Do men have pelvic floors?
  • …and so much more!

Grab your veggies and get dipping with this Easy Greek Yogurt Tzaziki Dip recipe made with just 5 simple and healthy ingredients #tzatziki #dip

A few weeks ago C and I went camping a few hours outside San Francisco to escape the city and soak up a little Northern California sunshine. We got lucky with perfect weather and a fantastic campsite in a state park just outside Guerneville, California, a town that was devastated earlier this year when the Russian River rose to 49 feet and flooded many of the homes. C was out there right after the flooding to help our friends clean out their flooded basement. The experience left a deep impact on both of us as we witnessed firsthand the effects of climate change.

As we sat atop the rolling hills, feet and hands in the grass we talked about how primal it feels to just sit outside in nature and soak up its gifts. Bodhi was running around us sniffing every blade of grass while bees fed on their first food of the season, dandelions. The same dandelions millions attempt to destroy using toxic herbicides sprayed on their fields and yards. We thought about the number of times throughout our lives we had sat in the grass of less remote areas and been involuntarily exposed to these same chemicals, simply because people prefer a weedless yard. It all struck us as very strange.

April is Earth Month though to be fair, every month should be earth month given it’s the one and only planet we’ve got. Between rising sea levels, the devastating long-term effects of glyphosate (on our soil and our bodies) and a massive drop in bee populations, our planet is seeing the effects of climate change on a massive and global scale. So what do we do about it? In the words of Anne Marie Bonneau, “We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.” The same applies to recycling, organics, composting and a million other things we can do to protect our planet.

As you guys know, I’ve been working with Stonyfield Organic this past year to help spread this message. Whether it’s choosing organic dairy, recycling or reusing your containers or spreading the message of organic playing fields through the StonyFIELDS initiative it’s truly been an honor to work alongside them to help spread the word. Also their yogurt is the best out there, so that helps 🙂
