My name is Svetlana and I am a PelvicHealth Physical Therapist with Painless Pregnancy. I graduated from the Cornell University with a Bachelor’s in Human Development and went on to earn my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from New York University. My passion for pelvic floor physical therapy started when I was working in Western Massachusetts and realized there were little to no resources for pregnant and post-partum patients that were suffering from pain and pelvic floor dysfunctions. I received my training from Herman and Wallace, APTA, and Postural Restoration Institute. I specialize in pregnancy, post-partum care, urinary/fecal incontinence, pelvic girdle pain, and prolapse. I am fortunate to be a mom to two beautiful girls. Each pregnancy and delivery was very different; one was a vaginal delivery and the other was an emergency c section. I learned that there are physical challenges associated with each mode of delivery, and how important it is to truly heal your body. I am excited to be part of your healing journey.
I have continued my specialty training in obstetrics at Brooks Rehabilitation, with Lyn Schulty from the Institute of Birth Healing, the American Physical Therapy Association, and Isa Herrera of Pelvic Pain Relief. I created and ran a pre and postnatal rehabilitation and fitness program, from 2010-2012, and have worked in various physical therapy settings ranging from outpatient adult/pediatric orthopedic to inpatient and acute care.
I have gone on to have 2 more beautiful children and feel blessed every day that I have the privilege to serve others while pursuing my passion.

Are you ready?
We want to talk with you prior to scheduling your first visit because what we do is different. Physical therapy can be tricky, let’s chat briefly to be certain that we are exactly what you need. And if we aren’t, we will be happy to point you in the right direction.
Painless Pregnancy is an amazing service and Svetlana is the absolute best! I was so nervous going into my second delivery and she helped get me mentally and physically prepared. If you’re pregnant and looking for relief from all the aches and pains, look no further!
