The Many Benefits of Pre-Natal

by | Aug 4, 2022

Pre-natal Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy Benefits Postpartum recovery.

It is no secret that having a baby is a life-changing event. Along with all the fantastic moments bringing a new life into the world, there are also many challenges. One of the critical aspects of post-natal recovery is ensuring your pelvic floor is healthy and functioning correctly. Pelvic floor physiotherapy can help ensure a speedy and successful recovery, both pre-and post-natal.

Your pelvic floor consists of muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue that runs from the pubic bone to the tailbone. These muscles support the bladder and uterus and act as a sphincter to control urinary and fecal incontinence. Unfortunately, pregnancy and childbirth can weaken and damage the pelvic floor muscles, leading to incontinence, pain during intercourse, and decreased sexual sensation.

Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a specialized form of physical therapy that focuses on strengthening and restoring function to the pelvic floor muscles. Pre-natal pelvic floor physiotherapy can help prepare your pelvic floor for the stresses of childbirth.

Post-natal pelvic floor physiotherapy can help speed up your post-natal recovery.

Benefits of Pre-natal Pelvic floor Physiotherapy Include:

-Improved bladder control and reduced incontinence.
-Reduced pain during intercourse.
-Increased sexual satisfaction.
-Fewer issues with prolapse (when organs descend into the vaginal cavity due to weakened pelvic floor muscles).

Promote a Healthy and Safe Delivery

In addition to the benefits listed above, proper care of your pelvic floor muscles can help ensure your baby’s healthy and safe delivery. A strong and well-toned pelvic floor can help reduce the risk of perineal tears and other childbirth injuries. It can also help you recover more quickly aMer delivery.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy is an essential part of pre-and post-natal care and can make a significant difference in your overall recovery. If you are pregnant or have recently had a baby, talk to your healthcare provider about pelvic floor physiotherapy. It may just be the key to a speedy and successful recovery.
