EP25 – Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic Organ Prolapse resources are often hard to come by and can be confusing to know what to believe. There seems to be a lot of misinformation and a lack of education in regard to prolapse. So on today’s episode, we talk with Sherrie Palm, founder of the non-profit organization APOPS which stands for Association for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Support. This organization is a global network of practitioners, researchers, and patients. It strives to spread awareness about pelvic organ prolapse, provide prolapse resources and further enhance the treatment of it. This is a must listen episode for all women who want to learn more about prolapse management and treatment, but also prolapse prevention!
