Pelvic Organ Prolapse
P elvic organ prolapse is extremely common, affecting at least half of all women who have given birth and many women who have never been pregnant. Prolapse affects as many women in their twenties, thirties and forties as women in their fifties,
sixties and seventies.
Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the basic shape
of the pelvic organ support system changes. Normally, internal pressure flows through the abdomen and pelvis with each
and every breath we take and
moves through the pelvis in a very specific way. This pathway of intraabdominal pressure is created by the lower abdominal wall, the lumbar curve at the base of the spine, and the perineal wall at the back of the pelvis. Pelvic organs are held in place by both the shape of the spine and the forces of intraab- dominal pressure.
When this basic structural framework changes, energy does not flow through the pelvis in quite the same way. Consequently, intraabdominal pressure strikes the organs slightly differently and instead of pinning them into place, as in normal anatomy, begins to push them out of position.
Many factors contribute to loss of spinal shape, including school desks, couches, soft chairs, inactiv- ity, tight clothing, restrictive shoes, and improper breathing habits.
The blueprint for the human female body devel- oped over a period of time when girls and women sat, stood, and moved in ways that supported the natural shape of the spine and pelvis. They sat using only the strength of their spine, carried loads in ways that reinforced the lumbar curve, walked barefoot or in soft-soled shoes, and resumed their daily chores shortly after giving birth.
All that has changed so that today little in our environment or activities of daily living supports our original design. As a result, women no longer have

Hello, my name is Marcile Marker'Petrilli..
In 2003 Christine Kent founded Whole Woman®. Since that time has been helping women overcome the fear and anxiety that often accompany common symptoms, while also giving them tools and resources to help stabilize and reverse their conditions.
At Whole Woman, we understand that the body is a self-organizing, self-healing organism when aligned with the laws of nature. We also acknowledge that gynecology, urology, oncology, and orthopedics are rife with anatomical misunderstanding, misguided practices, and harmful treatments.
Whole Woman follows the principles of self-care, which are inextricably connected with caring for others and caring for the planet.
