Pregnancy Preparation

A Message From Olivia Rutledge, Founder & CEO of Pelvic Solutions in Christiansburg, VA

Are you: 

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!

Many pregnant women in the New River Valley suffer unnecessarily because they’re told…

The Truth Is...

At Pelvic Solutions, we help women during pregnancy feel confident and prepared for the new arrival of their little one. We spend extensive time educating moms to-be on the pelvic floor and how it responds to labor and the postpartum period as well as guiding them through a list of stretches and exercises that will ease getting into different pushing positions (both with/without an epidural), reduce the risk of tearing, and prepare them for postpartum recovery.

Listed below are just a few things you can expect us to cover with you during our Prenatal Preparation Sessions:
  • How to lengthen and relax your Pelvic Floor to make way for baby
  • Biomechanics to ease common symptoms of lower back pain and sciatic pain throughout pregnancy
  • How to apply KinesioTape for Round Ligament Pain
  • Perineal Massage (demo for both you & your spouse!)
  • Pushing techniques that can be done with or without an epidural and how that affects your Pelvic Floor

“I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Olivia! I had my first appointment today and left feeling truly connected to my body. She took the time to explain the “how and why” and what I need to focus on to help my current issues. I can’t wait for my next appointment!”

“I started having pelvic floor weakness after birthing my first child. Thankfully one of my friends let me know about Dr. Rutledge and her new practice. I was hesitant at first simply from nerves but I am so thankful I overcame those fears! Dr. Rutledge is professional, thorough, patient, and so knowledgeable. I have seen drastic improvement in my body even while being pregnant with my second child. Dr. Rutledge has given me the tools to prepare for labor, delivery, and postpartum. I am much more confident in myself and feel so much better too. I highly recommend her services to anyone!”
