Monika Stefanowicz , DPT, WCS
I am a woman who is passionate about the pelvis. See, I’ve had my own problems with lifelong constipation and pelvic pain. I understand the shame & stigma that society wants us to feel because of these problems. I know how frustrating it is to go from doctor to doctor, yet not get the help you so desperately want. I believe that’s part of what has made me fall in love with this speciality. When I learned about pelvic health for the first time during graduate school I instantly knew that I found my calling. Part of that was a bit selfish… because I believed that if I pursued this training, then I would be able to heal myself. And guess what? I have! My own journey has taught me that it’s possible for others, no matter how long they’ve had problems. I learned to become vulnerable, to ask for help, and to create a lifestyle which supports my well-being in order for me to do what I love on a daily basis. I adore teaching people about the most intimate part of their bodies because I believe it’s FUN not embarrassing. I see a future in which children are taught these basics in school and pregnant women get preventative pelvic floor physical therapy. I’m here to support you on your journey, whether that’s through virtual visits (in the US) or home visits (in the Silicon Valley area). I also love to teach groups of people about pelvic health. Whether for an organization or a local Meetup, I make pelvic health funny, enlightening, and easy to understand.
