Podcast category – Health and Fitness

Author – The Continence Foundation of Australia

This can be a situation where others can’t see your struggle whether it’s pain, discomfort or the inability to walk very far, because you look otherwise well.  Today’s guest is Stephanie Thompson who experienced a traumatic childbirth injury and lives with the consequences of pelvic organ prolapse. For Stephanie, every day needs to be carefully managed and planned to minimise her level of pain and help her be the best mother she can be for her children.

Stephanie is a published author, advocate and founder of, a platform which supports women to make informed decisions before childbirth and beyond.
