What is prolapse? Why does it happen? What’s a Girl to Do?

Listen, if you’re not actively seeking support, or you’re not sure what it is, you’re not alone. I’ve been a fitness professional for 36 years, a Medical Exercise Specialist since the late 90s, and not once has a women – until a YouTube subscriber asked once about prolapse and how to exercise with it and for it.

My guest:

Dr. Betsy A.B. Greenleaf is a triple board-certified women’s health expert, entrepreneur, inventor, and business leader, who specializes in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery for over 20 years.

Dr. Greenleaf, is a trailblazer as the first female in the United States to become board certified in Urogynecology.    

 She possesses a professional reputation that has led to being sought after by medical societies, associations, and corporations to provide lectures, teaching, and advanced training.  In 2018, she was honored with the title of distinguished fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Obstetrics and Gynecology for her service and dedication to the field.  

She holds committee positions on many national women’s health organizations.  She is a board examiner for the American Osteopathic Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.  She serves as a spokesperson for the American Osteopathic Association, with her quotes appearing in many major media outlets.
