Having a baby can be one of the most amazing experiences of a person’s life. However, the extra weight of growing/carrying a baby and the strain of contractions, labor, and birth put the body through many changes in a very short period of time. To accommodate these changes, ligaments and muscles must be stretched and relaxed.
These processes are problematic when the loosened muscles and stretched ligaments can no longer hold organs in place. As a result, new mothers may experience urinary or fecal incontinence, pelvic floor pain, and prolapse very easily.
