Pelvic Floor and Inner Core Preparation and Recovery
35 percent of new mother’s experience urinary incontinence following childbirth, and 20 percent of first-time moms experience severe pelvic floor muscle injury after a normal pregnancy and delivery.
Pregnancy and birth (both vaginal and caesarean) can put stress on and damage the pelvic floor. So, if you are planning to have a baby, you’re pregnant, or you’ve had a baby (or a few); now is an especially important time to pay attention to your pelvic floor muscles.
Pelvic Floor Health is more than just doing Kegel exercise.
