In this episode of the Rise Parenting Podcast, I chat with Pelvic Floor PT and new mama, Charisse Balance. This is Charisse’s second time on the podcast, previously she shared her insights in her professional role as a PT and this visit we hear her personal experiences as a new mom! We share birth stories and speak openly about our birth injuries, having both experienced varying degrees of perineal tearing. We connect on all things new mom: postpartum anxiety, managing expectations, breastfeeding and of course tear-care!

Treatments referenced for perineal tear care:

• side lying

• exposure to air and light

• compression garments

• sitz baths

• vaginal steaming

• tamanu oil
