The Pelvic Health Handout Project is for pelvic health professionals – pelvic PTs, yogis, fitness, doulas, sex therapists & educators, massage therapists, MDs, and more.
We like to give solid info to our patients and clients, and instead of reinventing the wheel, why not have a collective “bucket” of handouts you can choose from!? This is now officially up and running with documents added regularly as of 9/12/15. * Please keep in mind that these are handouts from health facilities around the world. You may need to adjust verbiage and information based on your demographics and updated research. * Not all handouts reflect the opinion or treatment approaches that pelvicguru.com fully endorses. Please use with discretion and follow the latest on evidence based therapeutic approaches.

Here’s how it works:
1. Submit any or all of your favorite patient education handouts in PDF form with your business logo and website. * If you are okay with sharing an “open access” form so others can modify the original, please send it in Word format vs. PDF. We still recommend stating “courtesy of” and keeping the original person or company’s info as the source. This can go to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title “handouts”
2. My team will choose the best handouts or give suggestions on how to modify them. If your handout is chosen, it will be showcased with your logo and business info. We would suggest those handing the information out keep the original form of the document.
3. The topics of the handouts can be diverse – not just pelvic floor!
Any interest in participating in this project? It will be an ongoing project as we add handouts. This would be a free offering. Are you in? Any suggestions?
