Founder & CEO Marnie Glavin
Welcome to Pelvic Health Support, the first-of-its-kind digital resource that aims to raise awareness, educate and support those living with pelvic health conditions.
Whether you’ve been struggling for many years or have just begun experiencing symptoms, PHS stresses the importance of taking a multidisciplinary approach to tackling your pelvic health issues. Learn about your condition, discover how to do an elimination diet, find a clinic or holistic practitioner near you, share your story, listen to our podcast with experts in the field, and try out mindfulness meditation and movement in the comfort of your own home.
I’ve been living with Interstitial Cystitis (IC) for more than 20 years and have seen a lack of awareness, resources, support and research since the beginning. Unfortunately not much has changed over the past two decades. After struggling with a postpartum flare-up, I took it upon myself to increase awareness, support and advocacy for Canadians with this complex condition. I executed the first IC/BPS fundraiser in Toronto, created a social media support group, provided one-on-one support calls and facilitated local and virtual support groups and events for those living with IC/BPS. Upon discovering how many out there are affected by pelvic pain and dysfunction, I chose to expand my reach and include all pelvic health conditions. My passion lies in increasing pelvic health awareness, research, support and education, and creating a future that ensures access to compassionate care, understanding and treatment for this under-supported group.
It is my greatest hope that your experience on this site will provide you with the tools you need to become more informed, supported and able to manage your condition in the way that works best for you.
