Events promoting women’s health and wellness are everywhere, but a truly unique, empowering and in-depth event is taking place every month right here in Orange County. Meryl Kern, founder of Liftique Blush in Newport Beach, is paving the way for a revolutionary approach to empowering women with The Vagina Dialogues. According to Kern, “This is a really special event that cracks the code by bringing women together to talk about anything and everything regarding vaginal wellness and the treatment options that are available.”
Every month, between 20 and 40 women gather for the event to share their stories and learn about cutting-edge treatments that will improve their quality of life. The event kicks off with an introduction by Kern, Liftique Chief Medical Director Dr. Mickey Karram—an internationally renowned urogynecologist and reconstructive pelvic surgeon—and Elaine Kopinga, a nurse practitioner and urogynecology specialist. The conversation begins in a very organic and dynamic way with any topic explored and every question answered. “Women come in not knowing quite what to expect, and they find that the environment is supportive and caring, and nothing is off-limits,” says Kern.
Native Knowledge: Kern was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer in 2015 and went through chemo, a double mastectomy and 5 reconstructive surgeries. The experience gave birth to the idea for Liftique. Kern’s open, honest and loving approach to women’s issues and healthcare has provided the Women of Orange County with a new way to maintain wellness and self-care. After surviving cancer, Kern realized that “I had to find a purpose and my purpose is to help other women look good, feel good and live their best lives.”

Kern, Kopinga and Dr. Karram have come together to bring the most up-to-date information and treatments to women who did not feel that their issues were being addressed by their primary care OB/GYN. “At Liftique we spend time with each of our clients in a quiet personal intimate environment.” At The Vagina Dialogues, women are given information on everything: vaginal changes due to childbirth, pelvic floor issues, urination incontinence, changes brought on by menopause and hormone deficiencies and all of the treatments available (including non-surgical ones) that will make a life-changing difference. “Our non-surgical treatments make life-changing differences for women who have been struggling in silence, and now have options to live the life they deserve!”
There are plenty of myths about the best ways to address issues like vaginal dryness, urinary leakage, painful sex and the emotional and psychological effects of menopause. The Vagina Dialogues is a safe place to bring all your questions regarding these or any topics and receive the real truth about treatments and medications that may work for you. Not sure about vaginal steaming or how to properly do Kegels? This event will make sure you leave knowing all the facts.
Native Knowledge: Did you know there is a device that works with an app to take the guesswork out of strengthening your pelvic floor? The Leva Pelvic Digital Health System gives you real-time visualization on your iPhone, guiding you through proper movement to train your pelvic floor. Use at home for five minutes, twice per day and see results within weeks. Contact Liftique for more information.
4 | Transformative Stories Shared Vagina Dialogues
According to Kern, “We hear stories from women who have been struggling with the loss of intimacy with their partners due to painful sex caused by vaginal dryness; we hear about women that have to always look for a bathroom when they are out because they constantly have the urge to go; we hear from women suffering with vaginal prolapse and didn’t know there were options to treat it. We cover the entire gamut of stories as it relates to all issues that women face.” Women attending the event are reassured that it’s okay to release any feelings of shame regarding these issues and then learn how to take care of themselves and address their own needs. This is a safe place, and the love and support given transforms and empowers all who take part.
