Pelvic Floor Health
Pelvic floor muscles work harder than normal during pregnancy; they are required to support the weight of the growing baby. They are also softened by the effects of pregnancy hormones. Whether you give birth vaginally or by caesarean, your pelvic floor muscles will be impacted. Understanding the changes in your body and having the right guidance during and after pregnancy can help prevent exerting unnecessary pressure on your pelvic floor. Staying healthy and strong before, during and after pregnancy is paramount to your wellbeing.
