Queer and Trans Pelvic Health and Wellness

It is a key tenet of the Valerio Pelvic Health mission to provide care that honors and celebrates LGBTQ+ members of the St. Louis community, with particular attention to the unique needs of trans, nonbinary, and gender diverse people. In addition to general pelvic floor  therapy and gender-affirming prenatal and postpartum care, I provide services which may be particularly beneficial to the trans and gender-diverse community, including:

  • Preparation for and recovery from gender-affirming procedures

  • Management of symptoms associated with hormone therapies

  • Management of symptoms sometimes associated with personal care practices such as binding or tucking
