Incontinence, Prolapse, and the Core, Oh My! A Discussion of These Common Issues.
We all know about the common physical issues of pregnancy and postpartum, an achy back, sore shoulders and tight hips. But what about the other issues that are often kept quiet, hidden in confusion and shame. Incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, finding some sense of connection to the postpartum core! These are huge physical barriers that can have an effect on the quality of one’s life. And while they are common, they are not a “normal” part of pregnancy and postpartum. And the individual suffering through these problems deserves an explanation help.
In this episode of Yoga | Birth | Babies, I speak with Registered Pelvic Health and Orthopaedic Physiotherapist, Anita Lambert. She dispels some common misconceptions about the popular “kegel” exercise and thoughtfully explains many pelvic floor and core problems pregnant and postpartum people regularly experience. Whether you are a pregnant person, new parent or birth worker, you will walk away from this episode with empowering and digestible information.
