Post baby. What can I do?

his is advice that I give all of my clients, see a pelvic floor physical therapist. It doesn’t matter if you’ve had a C-Section or if you’ve had a vaginal birth. Our bodies go through so much while we are pregnant, our core systems become imbalanced. Therefore, after we have a baby we need to learn to retrain our core systems. Through physical therapy you will learn so much about how you can heal your body. This is especially important to prevent pelvic floor dysfunction.

A few things that will help optimize your core system:

*No breath holding. When you hold your breathe, it puts pressure on your pelvic floor. This can cause peeing when you sneeze or can lead to prolapse.

*Piston breathing: When you inhale, you should inhale into your ribs and your pelvic floor should lower. When you exhale, your pelvic floor should rise with your breathe.

*Neutral posture: Stack your ribs over your hips. Untuck your bum.

*Avoid ab gripping or sucking your stomach in. This also puts extra pressure on your pelvic floor.

Lastly, we are all individual. We should be treated as individuals especially when it comes to exercising. What works for one person may not work for you. And I am here to help develop a program that works for you!
