Today we host Dana Sackar of Flourish Physical Therapy. Dana and I met through a mutual friend who, highly recommended I speak to Dana about my past abdominal surgery as the surgeries will cause scar tissue. This also applies to those with endometriosis. Dana was the first to speak with me about the potential affects of abdominal scar tissue on fertility. She’s been a huge advocate for my fertility physically and emotionally, and is an advocate for women in general. I hope you enjoy learning from her as much as I do.
Thank you for joining our 8 day interview series of experts in Chicago you must consult while trying to conceive. I started this project due to my personal experience of not feeling fully informed with all my options available to improve my fertility, not being prepared for the challenges I would have to face, and feeling completely out of control of my body.
It wasn’t until the last year and a half through my studies that I learned there are other approaches I can incorporate that have helped to improve my fertility health and improve my experience (alongside medical doctors, of course).
My hope for this series is to spread the message to as many people as possible that you can be more informed, prepared and therefore be more in control of your own fertility health and there are several tools out there and healers in Chicago that can help you on your path.
