What the medical system gets wrong about pelvic organ prolapse (cystocele, rectocele, and uterine prolapse) is that prolapse is a symptom not a disease.
Oh, and the pelvic floor you have heard so much about? It’s a myth, which I can and help you prove for yourself. And once you understand how false the idea of a soft tissue pelvic floor that must be strengthened to keep your organs from falling out really is, you’ll understand why the traditional medical interventions are so ineffective and destructive.
The facts are this…For generations, women have been taught by their mothers to tuck their bottoms, flatten their bellies, and pull their shoulders back. Unfortunately, this is a profoundly unnatural conformation for the female body.
All too often, the result of this culturally mandated posture is prolapse, urinary incontinence, and/or chronic hip pain.
The good news is that with my revolutionary methods, these conditions can be stabilized and reversed.
It is true that after pelvic surgery and/or hysterectomy, results are more difficult to predict, but any improvement is better than additional surgery.
How do I know this?
I developed these methods over a ten year journey of research and experimentation while I was struggling to gain control of my own profound uterine prolapse.
My condition occurred as a result of a bladder suspension surgery I was talked into in 1993. Like everyone else, I trusted that the doctor knew what he was doing and was acting in my best interest.
Neither of these assumptions turned out to be true in my case. After my uterus prolapsed, I refused the hysterectomy I was told was now medically essential, and struggled with the bulging, pulling, and chafing for years before the pieces of the prolapse puzzle started to fall into place for me.
It took still more years of hard work, research, and experimentation, but I finally regained control of my prolapse. I published my book Saving the Whole Woman and started teaching other women online what I had learned, without even knowing if they would be able to replicate my results.
Imagine my excitement when within a few weeks, women of all ages began writing back that their symptoms were improving!
Subsequently, this work has kept thousands of women out of the operating room and leading full, physically and sexually active lives in over sixty countries.
While there is no “cure” for prolapse in the traditional sense, surgical or otherwise, I am living proof that prolapse is very manageable for a lifetime.
At Whole Woman, we talk about the three pillars of the Whole Woman work - education, support, and persistence.
Education - We have all grown up in a culture in which we have been taught a detailed understanding of our anatomy isn’t important, because if something goes medically wrong, we just turn ourselves over to the experts who will do the right things for us.
Sadly, this view, carefully cultivated by Big Pharma and the multi-national surgical supply companies, has been frightfully abused, particularly in the treatment of chronic conditions.
With trauma and acute conditions, the medical system can work miracles. But for many chronic conditions, they are worse than useless, falling back on all they seem to know anymore…drugs and surgery. But, of course, drugs and surgery are where the money is.
The Whole Woman work is built on a different perspective.
You are not the patient, you are the Physician.
This means two things.
First, for chronic conditions like prolapse, no one but you can move the organs back where they belong.
Second, if you are going to be the Physician, you need some fundamental anatomic understanding as to the root cause of your prolapse, and why Whole Woman methods are both appropriate and effective.
Support - When you have questions and concerns as you inevitably will, you need someone knowledgeable to communicate with who can answer your questions and give you practical guidance.
At Whole Woman we provide -
- The free Whole Woman online forum, with over 13,000 members, virtually all women with prolapse of all ages and from around the world. You will get thoughtful and experienced support from women like yourself
- I have trained and certified Whole Woman Practitioners in cities and towns around the US as well as Canada, Australia, the UK, Ireland, Belgium, and Ghana who can provide hands-on help and support.
- I am personally available for consultations, workshops, classes, and intensives. It’s a big world, and there may not be a Whole Woman Practitioner in your neighborhood. So I am available by phone, Skype, and in-person sessions to help you master my methods.
The main thing to understand is this - you are not alone.
Persistence - The Whole Woman work requires effort on your part. The work is not physically strenuous, but the challenge is overcoming decades of postural habits and remembering to remember to stay pulled up into Whole Woman posture.
Your condition didn’t develop overnight. It is the result of decades of unfortunate alignment, which or course was not your fault. Depending on many variables, it generally takes some weeks or months to gain full control of your prolapse.
Again, let me emphasize that no one else can do this work for you.
The heart of the Whole Woman work is skeletal realignment - restoring the natural conformation of your female body. While I have a variety of exercise programs to help with this, the postural work begins when you sit up in bed in the morning and ends when you lie back down at night.
This doesn’t mean you can’t relax into your favorite couch or chair again, but the stronger you become in Whole Woman posture, the less you will feel like lounging in soft furniture, which is likely to aggravate your condition.
In time, Whole Woman posture will become your default way of standing, sitting, walking, running, lifting, and carrying. You will adopt this posture not because I tell you to, but because when you do your symptoms improve.
It’s as simple as that.
The First Aid for Prolapse video course is the start of your healing journey.
Building on my many years of working with women struggling with pelvic organ prolapse, this course is the flagship video program for women with prolapse.
In Modules One and Two, I will take you through the understanding of your pelvic anatomy, which will help you realize why the Whole Woman methods are so effective, and why those of the medical system are not.
Can you imagine? Five hundred years ago, the first really influential medical illustrator and anatomist made a critical error in describing the orientation of the pelvis. He illustrated it as a basin with the opening in the bottom. The reality is the pelvis is like a ring on its edge with the opening is at the back.
To this day, this error continues to be perpetuated in contemporary medical and surgical textbooks!
The result of this error is the myth of the “pelvic floor”. And, yes it is a myth, which I will demolish in First Aid for Prolapse, and which you will be able to verify for yourself in a few seconds.
You will learn Whole Woman posture and why this is so critical for your pelvic support health.
In Module Three, I will help you translate what you have learned into the practical realities of modern life.
In Module Four I will give you a quick and efficient exercise program to enhance your pelvic health and help you support the Whole Woman posture.
In Module Five, you’ll find eight techniques I have developed to help you successfully manage your prolapse, encourage your organs to move back where they belong and stay put, pinned in place with every breath you take when in Whole Woman posture.
In short, I provide you with the knowledge, attitude, and tools you need to get your prolapse under control.
The amazing thing you will discover is that once you have gained control of your condition, prolapse ceases to be much of a issue in your life.
If you are like most women who have just recently discovered prolapse, or have had it for years but it’s starting to get much worse, the statement above may sound ridiculous.
However, once you understand what to do to get your prolapse to behave itself if you’re having a bad day you too will realize that a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders and you have your life back!

Having suffered a profound uterine prolapse in the early 1990s as a result of bladder suspension surgery, Christine refused the recommended hysterectomy and spent more than a decade researching her condition in the medical literature and experimenting with dance, alignment, body work, and posture. Finally, she brought her own prolapse under control and began teaching other women how to control theirs.
Author of Saving the Whole Woman, still the definitive book on the subject of non-surgical intervention for pelvic organ prolapse, Christine has also produced, written, directed, and narrated over a dozen videos and video courses to help women help themselves. Her work has kept thousands of women out of the operating room in over sixty countries.
