Pelvic Floor and Childbirth

I was delighted to be joined by the gorgeous Physiotherapist Lisa Carnie from Pelvic Solutions. Lisa is an inspiration to men and women out there that have been struggling around pelvic conditions and is on a mission to talk openly and educate how they can get back in control.

Physical Therapy for Urinary Incontinence

Lisa shares her pain story around her first pregnancy and how that accelerated her journey to look at pelvic health. She is now moving onto her own exciting journey with her second pregnancy being 21 weeks pregnant.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

For many women when they have children it can be their first time that they are taught about the pelvic floor muscles. With one third of women experiencing urinary incontinence and one in ten experiencing fecal incontinence after childbirth the need for education and training of the pelvic floor muscles is crucial.

Signs of Pelvic Floor Dyfunction

Signs of pelvic floor dysfunction can range from leaking of bowel and bladder, painful sex, lower back and pelvic pain, dragging feeling in the pelvis, lack lustre orgasms to name just a few. Many of these conditions need to be treated not by just looking at someones pelvic floor muscles but actually how they breathe.

Breathing and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

Our main breathing muscle the diaphragm should always be moving generating intra abdominal pressure. The pelvic floor works in unison with the breathing muscles supporting the organs of the bladder, uterus and bowel.
