You and your baby share a body for about nine months. During this time, your body adapts as your baby progresses through different states of development. These changes bring about a number of problems for expectant mothers.
Pregnancy and childbirth can put a massive amount of stress on your body. This can result in brief as well as chronic pain, swelling, fatigue, and deconditioning. Once you’ve delivered, it can be incredibly difficult to get back into shape on your own.
Incontinence is a personal and sensitive problem. It can have a major impact on your quality of life and cause you to avoid social situations, leading to a less active lifestyle.
Diastasis Recti (DRAM)
As a woman’s abdomen grows during pregnancy, Diastasis recti of the abdominal muscles (DRAM) can occur. This is a separation of the abdominal muscles along the line of connective tissue that runs down the centre of the abdomen. DRAM is often painful and may prevent you from engaging in regular exercise. The condition is very common – in fact, up to 60% of women suffer from some degree of DRAM.
Pelvic Floor Issues
The pelvic floor is the collection of muscles, nerves, blood vessels, connective tissue, and other organs in and around the pelvis. A strong, healthy pelvic floor is crucial for both bowel and bladder continence. However, surgery, aging, and other issues can lead to pelvic floor issues. These issues include loss of complete control over the bowels and/or bladder along with pelvic organ prolapse – the protrusion of the bladder and other organs into the vagina.
Pelvic Girdle & Back Pain
Low back pain and pain from the pelvic girdle often go hand in hand, particularly for women. The pelvic girdle, consisting of the pelvis and hips, may radiate pain into the low back and vice-versa. All too often, the result is miserable pain, debility, and loss of quality of life.
