Pelvic Floor Health
Having a baby changes your body in several different ways. Following pregnancy and childbirth, some women may experience a change in bladder function, as well as the anatomy of the vagina and surrounding organs. Your pelvic floor muscles and tissues can become strained during pregnancy and birth, especially if your labor was long or complex.
These conditions may diminish the quality of life and add stress to some women’s daily lives. While these issues might be considered common for the first six to eight weeks after giving birth, they are not issues you should have to deal with for months (or years) after having a baby. Rather than only reading about pelvic floor exercises and continuing to struggle with recovery, it's essential to have a professional evaluation.
