Get Support From Pelvic Floor Specialists At Our Clinic In London
Pelvic floor exercises, otherwise known as Kegel exercises, are important during and after pregnancy.
That’s because they help strengthen the muscles that support the uterus, bladder and bowels. These frequently become weakened during pregnancy due to the increased weight and pressure on the pelvic region.
Pregnancy and childbirth places significant strain on the pelvic floor muscles. To make things more difficult, their strength can be further compromised during labour. By doing pelvic floor exercises during pregnancy, you can enhance muscle tone and improve your ability to recover postpartum.
Be better prepared for your labour and delivery.
Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles can help in preparing for the physical challenges of labour and childbirth. Strong pelvic floor muscles improve your ability to push during delivery and, in some cases, reduce the risk of tearing or the need for an episiotomy (a cut made by a healthcare professional into the perineum and vaginal wall to make more space for a baby to be born.
Our pelvic floor specialists in London can also aid your postpartum recovery.
Prevent common issues like urinary incontinence.
Pregnancy can often cause urinary incontinence (the involuntary leakage of urine). Pelvic floor exercises can help prevent or reduce the severity of this problem by improving the strength and control of the muscles that support the bladder.
Pelvic floor exercises will also promote blood circulation to the pelvic region. This can help to prevent issues like haemorrhoids and swelling in the legs.
Our specialists can provide guidance on the appropriate exercises and ensure they are suitable for your specific needs.
