Today I speak with Dr. Nicole Cozean, founder PelvicSanity in Southern California, with the belief in putting patients first. She also hosts the Pelvic PT Rising podcast and co-founder of PelviCon. She is also the mom of a six month old! Nicole now spends much of her time training and mentoring her dedicated staff, enabling far more people to receive expert care at PelvicSanity. Our conversation delves into her experience as a long time pelvic floor PT and a new mom!

We talk about:
