Client Testimonial


"I absolutely loved the course. I feel SO very empowered and a lot more ready and confident in my body when it births. I've been gushing everything I'm learning to my husband, and it's opened up good conversations for him to understand what my body is going through, and will go through these next months. Rebecca is so very easy to listen to, watch, and learn from. It's digestible, personable, and so informative without being intimidating."

"My husband and I talked about the information throughout my entire labor, I kid you not. I swear this course was the reason I could push my baby out and the reason I didn't have a c-section. Thanks so much for being part of my birth dream team <3333"

"Totally worth it. I'm usually the type that likes to learn on my own and I tried Googling everything but my only regret is not starting this course sooner. Rebecca is soooo knowledgeable and so good at clearly explaining concepts that I spent hours reading about in the matter of minutes. It's so comforting to have someone guide you through this information. This course was also a HUGE help for my partner. We both felt so informed after finishing this class. 10/10 recommend."

"I LOVED this course. Everything from the material to the way it was set up was so approachable.The fact that it was broken into short little snippets that I could do during my toddlers nap time was everything and every time I had a question, it was answered in the next section. I've sent it to all of my pregnant friends!!"

Dr. Rebecca Maidansky, PT, DPT



Hi ya'll, I am a pelvic floor physical therapist and the founder of Lady Bird Physical Therapy, a clinic in Austin, TX specializing in helping pregnant and postpartum folks manage pregnancy pains, prepare for birth and recover postpartum.

With nearly 10,000 hours working in pelvic floor physical therapy, hours of continuing education courses and a number of published writing, I am here to share what I've learned over the years with you. ​You can find my pelvic-related articles on sites such as Women's Running Magazine, Austin Fit and Health.com and on Lady Bird PT's blog, The Pelvic Press.

While I started as a sports focused physical therapist, I transitioned to work in the pelvic floor world in order to marry my passion for working with athletes as well as pregnant and postpartum folks. I felt that too many people were coming in to see me while pregnant or following birth saying "I wish someone told me..." and I knew that this was not the fault of the patient, but rather the fault of a system that has not prioritized care for perinatal people.

As a vocal advocate for the importance of perinatal health and better, more accessible care, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with pregnant and postpartum people worldwide to help make their transition into parenthood as comfortable as possible. I feel strongly that the aches and pains, both emotional and physical, that come during and following pregnancy can be eased and prevented by education and guidance.
