Bringing awarness to a common health issue that faces most women at some point in their lifetime called pelvic organ prolapse. Removing the stigma assoiciated with it and helping women world wide find the answers they need. In this modern age we can't continue to allow the "secret" to be hidden away.
We are creating a film that will feature five women and their journeys through the discovery and treatment of prolapse.
The second half of the film will be an educational resource that teaches women about the five types of pelvic organ prolapse, symptoms and degrees. This half of the film will also present unbiased treatment options for prolapse in the varying degrees. We will also discuss preventive measures to help alleviate women from dealing with this at all in the future.
At the ripe old age of 27 my husband and I welcomed our first son into our family! Boy did I and my husband find out the hard way that those pregnancy books do not tell you everything that can happen during and after the birth.
I discovered I had a prolapse, a word most women do not know even though it will affect 50-75% of women in their lifetime. After the initial devastation I dived into 1000's of hours of research to understand what prolapse is and what my options were. I also started a website for women to share their stories and educate each other; www.prolapsehealth.com
Upon marriage I came into the family film production company, Living Letters Productions, located on the island of Montserrat.
The studio has produced several documentaries about living on an island with an active volcano, as well as educational films that are designed for use in universities worldwide.
We have independently produced cooperate films, promotional videos for tourism growth (after hurricane and volcanic crisis), government departments, Credit Unions, etc. The studio has also had the opportunity to lend a hand in the development of an IMAX feature film, Forces Of Nature.
