Pelvic Floor Health For Moms

Uncategorized Apr 05, 2023

Hey Mama,

Today I want to talk about something that's important but often overlooked: our pelvic floor health. As moms, we've been through a lot in that area since becoming moms. From check-ups to pregnancies, childbirth, and everything in between, it's safe to say that our pelvic floors have been put to the test.

But as moms, we have a way of ignoring our own needs when we're busy taking care of everyone else. We might ignore the fact that our pelvic floor might not be functioning as it should. We might tell ourselves that "it's not that bad" or "I'll take care of it later." However, I want to encourage you to take care of your pelvic floor and prevent any future problems.

Making an appointment with your doctor or a pelvic floor therapist might seem daunting, but it's worth it. By taking care of your pelvic floor, you'll help your body support itself better and feel more comfortable in your own skin.

So, have you had your pelvic floor check-up lately? If not, now's the time to make that appointment. It might not be the most glamorous topic, but it's crucial for our overall health and wellbeing.

As moms, we give so much of ourselves to our families and often forget to prioritize our own needs. But taking care of our pelvic floor health is just as important as taking care of our mental and physical health. And let's face it; we're not getting any younger, so it's essential to take preventative measures to avoid any future problems.

Pelvic floor issues can cause a range of problems, from incontinence to discomfort during sex. But with some extra effort and physical therapy, you can help your body support itself better and feel more confident in your own skin.

It's important to remember that pelvic floor health isn't just about childbirth. Menopause, aging, and even certain exercises can affect the pelvic floor muscles. It's a complex network of muscles, ligaments, and tissues that need to work together correctly to maintain good health.

So, what can you do to take care of your pelvic floor health? First and foremost, get checked out by a medical professional. They'll be able to assess your pelvic floor and identify any issues that need to be addressed.

If your doctor recommends physical therapy, don't be afraid to go for it. Pelvic floor physical therapy is a non-invasive and effective way to help your body support itself better. Your therapist will work with you to identify any problem areas and develop a customized treatment plan that works for you.

In addition to physical therapy, there are also things you can do at home to support your pelvic floor health. Kegel exercises are a great way to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. These exercises involve contracting and relaxing the muscles that control urination, which can help prevent incontinence and other pelvic floor issues.

You can also incorporate pelvic floor-friendly exercises into your routine, such as yoga or Pilates. These exercises can help improve flexibility and strengthen the muscles that support the pelvic floor.

In conclusion, taking care of our pelvic floor health is an essential part of self-care. As moms, we often put everyone else's needs before our own, but it's crucial to prioritize our health and wellbeing. Whether it's through physical therapy, exercise, or a simple check-up with your doctor, taking care of your pelvic floor is a small investment that can pay off in a big way. So, take care of yourself, mama, and make sure everything is functioning as it should down there. Your body will thank you for it.
