How Do I Protect My Pelvic Floor During Pregnancy?

How Do I Protect My Pelvic Floor During Pregnancy Kath Baquie from FitNest Mama

As a pelvic floor physio, I get asked a lot of questions from women wanting to know how to protect their pelvic floor during pregnancy.  I also work with many women who have already given birth and are needing to regain some strength in that all important area.  It can be daunting with so much unknown and I’m here to break it down into bite size pieces so you can approach labour with confidence.

In this episode, I dive into the nitty gritty of the types of issues women can experience after birth and how to regain your strength and confidence to live the life you want to live after your baby has arrived.  I discuss topics that some women might be a little too embarrassed to ask about, such as incontinence, trouble with constipation, vaginal prolapse and how to have the correct posture while on the toilet.

I also discuss relaxation strategies and workouts you can do at home and the importance of developing a pelvic floor strengthening routine.  Remember to sign up to the FREE 5 Days, 5 Ways to Prepare for Birth event to help you confidently prepare for labour and feel empowered about childbirth.
