Prenatal Pelvic Floor Therapy

Due to the many physical changes that accompany pregnancy, it is not uncommon to experience leaking, back pain, pubic pain, and pelvic floor tightness during your first or subsequent pregnancies. Pelvic floor therapy during pregnancy can help you:

  • Explore positions for pain free sleep
  • Ease pelvic pain in the pubic bone and sacroiliac joints
  • Learn strategies to release tight pelvic floor muscles
  • Walk away with a plan for how to continue healing after baby arrives

Pelvic Floor Therapy For Birth Preparation

If this is your first pregnancy or your fifth, it is never too late to learn more about your body in preparation for birth. The pelvic floor muscles are literally the birth door, but so many women have questions about this mysterious part of the body. Pelvic floor therapy in preparation for birth can help you:

  • Know if you should be doing a million Kegels (the answer is no!)
  • Lean breathing strategies for the pushing phase
  • Practice pushing positions that help open the pelvis
  • Understand how to do perineal massage

Postpartum Pelvic Floor Therapy

The pelvic floor muscles are key to bowel, bladder, and sexual health. After having a baby, it is not uncommon to experience leaking, core weakness, feelings of heaviness in the vagina, and pelvic pain. Pelvic floor therapy in the 4th trimester can help you:

  • Reconnect with your pelvic floor and abdominals to stop leaking
  • Heal diastasis recti, the abdominal separation that occurs during pregnancy
  • Learn safe body mechanics to prevent or minimize symptoms of prolapse
  • Practice scar massage after tearing, episiotomy, or cesarean birth
  • Feel confident returning to sex, exercise, and work
