Before your session
You’ll get an email 30 minutes before your appointment time. Click on the link in that email. Get ready to chat via video with us. Don’t worry, we won’t ask to see your vagina. You can wear whatever you like.
You can chat with us from any room in your house, including a closet. You can chat with us from your car. You can be feeding your baby. You can be moving from room to room. Make this session whatever you need it to be. Totally private time for you or fitting it in where you can.
During your session
We’ll start with a basic introduction.
Your therapist will introduce themselves and then ask you the following questions: Tell me a bit about yourself. Where are you calling from? How did you hear about the Vagina Whisperer? What would you like to chat about during this session? What are your goals?
Then we’ll talk more details about what issues you have going on.
You’ll get a chance to share your story.
You’ll get asked some follow up questions. Depending on what you’re concerned about we may ask you about peeing, pooping, sex, your pregnancy/labor/birth experiences, and what your daily lifestyle looks like.
After that we’ll provide some guidance and support in figuring out what steps you may benefit from taking next. That may include:
Possible exercises, approaches, and habits to add or change.
Understanding how your “core” and pelvic floor muscles work.
Suggesting if a local pelvic physical therapist would be beneficial or if you should consider seeking out other healthcare providers.
After we discuss a game plan, we will talk about where to go from here.
If you need some additional support you may benefit from follow up appointments with us in which will can tailor a specific progression for you.
You may wish to purchase the 3 or 6 package sessions which offer a detailed program to follow at home after every session, progressions specific to you, and email access to your therapist in between sessions.
You may choose to follow through with a local pelvic PT if concerns don’t resolve and/or if you need more hands on evaluation and treatment approaches. You can utilize the PT locators found on this website or ask us to help ask around.
After your session
You’ll get an email from your therapist summarizing the session and outline some homework to work on. You can reach out to your therapist or our clinic if you have any questions while you work through your plan.
Hopefully an online consult with us can help guide you through your concerns and leave you feeling more empowered about your vagina, your body, and where to go from here. Lastly, we strongly encourage you to work on what we discussed and consider meeting back with us in a few weeks for continued guidance.
