Make Some Noise with Andrea Owen

Kim Vopni, The Vagina Coach, joins me to talk about women’s pelvic health. Kim is a self-professed kegel maven and a certified fitness professional who became passionate about spreading information on pelvic health after the birth of her first child. 

So, you may be wondering why we’re talking about things like vaginas and pelvic floors on a personal development podcast. Well, it is my belief that if your physical health is suffering, you won’t be able to appropriately focus on doing the hard work of personal development. But, if this isn’t your jam, don’t worry, we’ll be back to good old-fashioned self-help very soon! 

We explore ways to overcome pelvic floor dysfunction, and vaginal dryness, and why we must normalize the conversation around talking about pelvic health. Some of the other topics in this episode include:

  • Kim answers, “Is it an overactive bladder or something else?” (8:56)
  • Pelvic organ prolapse: what it is, its symptoms, and healing (15:00)
  • Is it true that as we age we lose elastin in our vaginal walls? (20:38)
  • What causes vaginal dryness and how we can keep things moisturized (31:55)
  • Why doing Kegels are important and when women should start doing them (38:59)
