The Importance Of Pelvic Floor Exercises
When you are trying to heal from childbirth, it’s extremely important to begin pelvic floor exercises as soon as possible. These such muscles are usually extremely weak because they are the main ones involved in the birthing process. As a result of these extremely weak pelvic
floor muscles, several women experience the following problems after childbirth:
-Severe sexual discomfort and pain
-Bladder and bowel incontinence
In some cases, childbirth can lead to stretching and tears of the pelvic floor muscles, but if women begin postnatal Pilates quickly, these muscles can quickly be restored.
