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.
