Founder & CEO Marnie Glavin
Welcome to Pelvic Health Support (PHS), a ground-breaking digital resource dedicated to to raising awareness, educating and providing support for those living with pelvic health conditions.
Whether you’ve been grappling with symptoms for years or are just beginning to experience them, PHS stresses the importance of taking on a multidisciplinary approach to tackling your pelvic health issues. Here, you can gain valuable insights into your specific condition, discover how to do an elimination diet, locate nearby practitioners who specialize in pelvic health, delve into our education hub for further understanding, and even try out mindfulness meditation and movement from the comfort of your own home.
With over 2 decades of personal experience living with Interstitial Cystitis (IC), I’ve witnessed the persistent lack of awareness, resources, support and research surrounding this condition. Unfortunately not much has changed over the past 20 years. Motivated by my own experience, I took it upon myself to raise awareness, offer support and advocate for those struggling. I organized Toronto’s inaugural IC/BPS fundraiser , initiated a support group, provided support calls and facilitated local and virtual support groups and events for those living with IC/BPS.
Recognizing the vast number of people affected by pelvic pain and dysfunction, I decided to expand my efforts to encompass all pelvic health conditions. My passion lies in increasing awareness, research, support and education for pelvic health, while striving to create a future that ensures access to compassionate care, understanding and treatment for this underserved group.
It is my greatest hope that your journey on this site equips you with the necessary tools to become more informed, supported and capable of managing your condition in the way that best suits you.
