Each module will kick off with didactic instruction in the topic, then lead into a group discussion with the intent for participants to have ample time for reflection. The instructor and moderator is a Physical Therapist who has been in the trenches with this conversation for the past five years. Megan Kranenburg, PT, DPT, WCS has balanced her solo outpatient pelvic health practice and Doula work since 2016.
