Postpartum Core & Pelvic Floor Workshop

NATICK, Mass. - BostonChron -- Pregnancy is a wonderful experience, but it's not easy on the body! Among other bodily changes, the increased progesterone causes a laxity or loosening of the joints; to accommodate the growing fetus, the curvature of the spine increases, and sometimes the abdominal muscles separate; and to support the baby and ready the body for birth, the shape and position of the pelvis change and the ligaments of the pelvis stretch.

These changes to the body have lasting effects. Common complaints both perinatal (during pregnancy) and postpartum (after pregnancy) include back pain, diastasis recti (abdominal separation), urinary and bowel incontinence, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse. About 35% of women complain about urinary incontinence after the birth of their child, and the percentage of women who experience bladder leakage increases with every pregnancy.

However, these changes do not need to be permanent! Whether the pregnancy was three months ago or thirty years ago, a skilled physical therapist, trained in pelvic floor disorders, can help you love your life again!
