Episode #4: Elise Maxwell from Ova Woman on Pelvic Floor Health + Healthy Menstrual Products

December 28, 2016

Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever other holiday you’re celebrating. More importantly, I hope you took some time to relax and refresh before we kick off 2017.

I’m back with the last episode of season #1 of the That’s So Maven Podcast! But I truly believe I saved the best for last so I hope you’ll forgive the brief hiatus.

On today’s episode we have Elise Maxwell from Ova Woman. I met Elise through Linley (other half of Fit Foodie Finds) and meeting her was like opening the Pandora’s Box of women’s reproductive health. I’m sure I’m not alone in wanting to know more when it comes to our reproductive health but at times I’ve felt like I’m at a loss for resources. For this very reason, Elise launched Ova Woman, which has since become an incredible resource for all questions or concerns regarding women’s health.

In the episode Elise discusses how and why she launched Ova, her own personal health journey along with answering some of my own questions regarding women’s reproductive health. Specifically, we’re getting into detail about:

-Pelvic floor health and incontinence aka “I pee when I sneeze or laugh…is that normal?”
-What the heck is in our tampons?
-Are kegels the answer to all of our problems?
-The menstrual product every woman needs in their life
-How to stimulate conversations about our reproductive health without being the weirdo at the party who’s obsessed with periods…working on this one.

And of course, I’ll be asking her the hot seat questions and I’m in love with her advice for her 20 year old self.

    I’ve been loving season 1 of the podcast! This final episode was my favorite I think. So many good things I learned that I didn’t know someone actually knew about! Can’t wait for season 2! 🙂
