Delivering a baby puts a huge amount of pressure on your pelvic floor muscles, and sometimes tearing. It is not surprising that our pelvic floor needs some rehabilitation and care once Baby is born, after all it has been through!
In the first few weeks after your delivery, you have to be extra cautious in the activities you are doing so you do not injure your pelvic floor during its precious recovery time (normally up to 12 weeks – the famous “4th trimester!”). Even if you feel good, you have to remind yourself of taking things slow, as going back to your normal activity level too fast would likely lead to pelvic floor dysfunctions. No one wants to deal with prolapse or urine leakage when they go back to their running or work out class!
