Babette Gray knows the heartache and struggle of pelvic pain better than anyone. She has a long personal history of pain, scarring, endometriosis and adhesions that have made her deeply empathetic and understanding of the struggles that other women face.
At the age of 5 she suffered a playground accident that resulted in scar tissue forming on her pelvic floor and years of pain. Then as a young adult, Babette began to experience ongoing, debilitating menstrual cramps and heavy dysmenorrhea.
She was diagnosed with endometriosis at 27-years-old and began monthly injections of lupron to shrink the endometrial tissue. But she struggled with side effects like insomnia, night sweats and depression. She also suffered two miscarriages while trying to conceive a child and continued to battle through everyday tasks like getting out of bed in the morning and maintaining steady employment.
Finally, at 40-years-old, Babette decided to have a supracervical hysterectomy to treat her pain and endometriosis for good. When her body had healed she felt happy, vital and full of energy. But years later she discovered adhesions had formed on her pelvic floor as a result of the hysterectomy, and she began to experience a new and different kind of pain.
Finding ways to manage her pain and cope with everyday life led Babette to create Pelvic Pain Solutions. And she now works tirelessly to support other women who are struggling with their own pain and symptoms.
Pelvic Pain Solutions manufacturing is based in the USA so a close eye can be kept on the integrity and quality of the products.
Pelvic Pain Solutions works closely with the small local Hmong community, providing fair trade employment practices. The factory supervisor is Ms Keo, a Hmong woman who lives in the USA and who has been with the company for more than a decade. She oversees the factory workers, highly skilled Hmong men and women, in an immaculately clean environment that is lighthearted and fun.
Pelvic Pain Solutions was the presenting sponsor for the nationally acclaimed movie, Endo What? and they proudly support the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.
