Postpartum Pelvic Floor
The Postpartum pelvic floor status after labor ?
The pelvic floor is a group of muscles and tissues forming a sling at the base of your pelvis. These muscles support your uterus, bladder, and rectum, playing a crucial role in urinary control, bowel movements, and sexual function.
Changes during pregnancy and labor
During pregnancy, the pelvic floor muscles are supporting all of our organs, growing uterus and baby. Kegels are important during and after pregnancy. During labor and childbirth, the pelvic floor stretches to allow the baby to pass through. This remarkable flexibility is essential for birth but can also lead to temporary weakening or injury to these muscles.
Postpartum pelvic floor recovery
After childbirth, it’s common to experience changes like urinary incontinence or reduced sexual sensitivity. These symptoms are often signs of a weakened pelvic floor. Kegels have an important role in the health of the pelvic floor muscles.
