March 9, 2023

Where we have honest conversations with experts in all things health and happiness ranging from pregnancy through menopause… I’m Buffy Stinchfield and I’m on a mission to EMPOWER women to THRIVE instead of being the victim to the unique challenges we face.


As a pelvic health physical therapist and mom of 3, I’ve seen and experienced the struggles that we face as moms and know that we don’t have to do it alone! Join me as we tackle the questions and issues that are core to our experience as women and mothers.

Let’s Be Empowered Together!

Talking about the effects of breast cancer treatment on pelvic health with Amanda Olson, DPT.  Did you know that breast cancer treatments can affect your pelvic floor health?  We talk about  issues women may experience and then what proactive steps women can take to support their pelvic health from who to see and what you can use at home.  Breast cancer survivors need to know this information so that they know they are not alone and that there is help for pelvic health symptoms such as vaginal dryness, pain with sex, bladder issues and more. Come take a listen!
