In this episode, Lynne Shulte, a pelvic floor PT and founder of the Institute for Birth Healing talks about common issues in pregnancy and especially postpartum. She talks about her history for over 30 years as a pelvic floor PT and the common patterns that led her to create programs for birthing people and providers to help recognize and alleviate these problems so that they don’t cause further issues.  She discusses what an open birthing pattern is and what effect it has on a person’s body, what some of the other effects that birth can have on the body, and what birthers can do to help themselves recover better after birth.


Lynn Schulte is a Women’s Health Physical Therapist for over 30 years and founder of the Institute for Birth Healing.   She has been helping moms heal from all the issues women experience after birth and is now teaching courses to bodyworkers to help them do the same.   She found a common birth pattern that shows up in the pelvis after birth and knows how to effectively release these patterns. Knowing we are more than just our bodies, Lynn works on all levels, physically, energetically, and spiritually with women to help them access their full potential.  She also teaches bodyworkers how to work with the energy of the body and how to access and use your intuition in your bodywork sessions. She offers a certification process to help birth professionals become Birth Healing Specialists. 

Lynn holds a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from St. Louis University, St. Louis Missouri.
