Post-Baby Pelvic Floor Issues Are Common But Not Normal
In pregnancy, your body goes through very predictable changes. Your core gets weak to accommodate the growing baby. Other muscles change to pick up the slack of the weakened core.
When it comes to the pelvic floor, things can go two ways…
- For some, her pelvic floor becomes underactive.
- For others, her pelvic floor becomes overactive trying to stabilize the pelvis.
Both over AND under active pelvic floor muscles cause issues like leaking, pelvic pain, or instability in the pelvis.
Those patterns don’t just go away after you give birth; but they can be corrected.
By rebalancing your muscles you can rebuild a healthy pelvic floor.
