The Lowdown with Bravemumma

What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse? with Sherrie Palm (Part 1)

October 27, 2021


How does one woman accidentally become the 'Pioneer of POP'?  

A self-confessed fitness fanatic, Sherrie Palm shares her journey from her own POP diagnosis, mesh surgery and recovery to becoming an Author, Founder and CEO of Association for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Support. 

As a woman who's had lived with pelvic organ prolapse, Sherrie Palm has such a wealth of knowledge and first hand experience in this POP space that we needed two episodes. In this first episode we introduce the reasons why the numbers are so high and yet it’s still taking us by surprise. In episode two, we dive deep into the types, causes, treatments and Levator Avulsions. 

This episode is for you if you want to know about;

  • pelvic organ prolapse 101
  • top tips for surgery recovery
  • the book POP - ‘The Silent Epidemic’    
  • vagina vs vulva  
  • why we are seeing stats as high as 50%, yet we aren't talking about it
  • how pornography has shaped our history of vaginal shame and taboo 
  • sex with prolapse 
  • how a support group went from 150 women to 17K+ (now 19K+)
