For a greater understanding of the pelvic floor muscle, it is the area between the pubic bone in the front and the tail bone at the back. There are several small muscles, nerves, and other soft tissues that form a sling creating support to the abdominal and pelvic organs to include the bladder, uterus and bowel. When the muscles are weak, they cannot stop leakage or when they are too tense you might have incomplete voiding and/or sexual pain or constipation.
Pregnancy and delivery bring extraordinary changes to the body. Mothers become immersed in care of child and often do not take the time to care for themselves and recover their strength and muscle tone. Postpartum muscle weakness, if not addressed, may become symptomatic later in life as incontinence, prolapse, back pain and other issues. Mommies-to-be and new moms are encouraged to focus on the health of their back, bellies, bottoms and more.
