Hello! I'm so glad you've decided to take this step with me on your journey to recovery. I began my passion in pelvic floor physical therapy while I was in PT school at Grand Valley State University. I had been interested in the field, and decided to observe a wonderful pelvic floor PT in the area, I was blown away by not only the diagnoses treatable by pelvic floor PT (incontinence, prolapse, tailbone pain, pelvic girdle pain, pain with intercourse, to name a few), but also the immense need for specialists in this area. I began taking classes to specialize immediately, traveling to Arkansas, Ohio, Illinois, to name a few so that I could grow in this field. I was hired by Renue Physical Therapy right out of school, and have been beyond blessed with the opportunities and support provided to me as I continue to work full time with them at our locations in Saginaw (State St.), Midland, and Caro. I began showing a special interest in the postpartum clientele in my first year of practice. After having completed additional training in this sub-specialty and gathering feedback in my experience, I decided to make my dream of providing this valuable information a reality and viola!
Kayla is truly incredible both as a PT & a person. If you are a mama to be or on your postpartum journey check out her services. I am so grateful for the part Kayla played in my recovery and was sad to see our visits end! - Britney M.
If you have any issues with post-surgical incision discomforts, this is the girl for you! - Tia G.
If you’re postpartum or have any type of pelvic floor issues, GO SEE KAYLA (or let her come to you)!! She is incredible and helped me tremendously with some things I had going on postpartum.
Seriously… I had 2 babies within 18 months of each other and I do NOT pee my pants when I sneeze, cough or laugh, thanks to her! - Ashley W.
Kayla is so awesome! I had the privilege to be one of her patients. I definitely recommend her for all my pregnant and postpartum friends (or really ANY pelvic floor issues) !! - Courtney W.
Under discussed, yet so important. Anyone who has had a baby can tell you that become extremely uncomfortable in your own skin afterward. Your body changed in so many ways over the 40 weeks and then overnight you have an entirely new body again. Things are happening that you can’t even explain, you don’t know if what you have going on is normal and unless you schedule an appointment prior you don’t see a doctor for 6 weeks. My pelvic floor PT Kayla had an amazing personality and an even bigger passion for her work. The awkwardness that you would expect to come with this is non existent with her as your therapist. Pelvic floor PT is way more than kegels (yes it is a portion). That peeing when you sneeze or even just breathe sometimes, yeah she will help you eliminate that. - Amy T.
Hey postpartum and currently pregnant mommas! Kayla is my amazing PT who specializes in pelvic floor issues and diastasis recti. You won’t meet a more knowledgeable and friendly PT! - Kayla H.
