Feeling ready for what is to come
What about feeling prepared for after birth?
Another advantage of seeing a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist in the prenatal period is becoming informed about what to expect postpartum.
Having conversations around normal changes in bowel or bladder control in the early days/weeks, can bring piece of mind.
Learning what you can do right from Day 1 with regards to re-connecting with your pelvic floor muscles and abdominals.
Learning strategies for supporting your body and promoting an optimal environment for healing is critical, whether the final outcome of birth was a vaginal delivery, or a c-section delivery.
The internet can be filled with a lot of fear-based messaging, or include a long list of DO’S OR DON’TS which can feel overwhelming.
I hope this resource can be a source of evidence-informed information which helps empower you to keep active during your pregnancy, feel supported in learning to be in control of your own pelvic floor muscles in birth, and expedite your recovery.
I wish you all the best in this exciting journey. There are many ways to learn how to connect with and build trust in your body in preparation for birth, but don’t think of this as your finish line. Think of it as the start of a new beginning. You now have the foundations to begin with your postpartum recovery. Be sure to make YOU a priority during this next phase as well!
