2020 is just so perfect numerically, it’s no wonder there will be a spike in number of babies born in this year – some allegedly with perfect vision too. For mothers-to-be expecting in this new year, here’s what to expect… after you’re expecting.
Your body has just served as a residence to your baby for the good part of nine months. As they grew, you stretched to fit them. Your nourishment from meals are now catering for two. You also avoid the scales because you look and feel like a whale, of course.
When the grand finale that is the delivery comes and goes, there is much ‘renovation’ to be done to restore your body to its pre-natal condition.
Of all of the slimming, blood-replenishing and vitamin-taking that is customary for all new mothers, are you sparing some time for your pelvic floor muscles?
Pelvic Floor Muscles: The Lowdown
Oft-neglected because we’re naturally more concerned about what we can see, your pelvic floor is more important to you than you actually know.
Pelvic floor muscles are the layer of muscles that support your bladder, bowel and uterus.
These muscles give us the control over how bladder and bowel movements, dictate the intensity of the sensation we get during sexual activity, and work with the abdominal and back muscles to support our spine… just to name a few.
The stronger these pelvic muscles are, the more adept you are at all of the above and more.
During Pregnancy/After Birth
As your baby starts to develop in the womb during your pregnancy, the increasing heft of your child will stretch your pelvic muscles as the months go by. Imagine filling up a balloon slowly with water – that’s how it stretches.
Like with all things elastic, constant tension naturally renders them loose and stretched thin. These weakened muscles get subjected to even more duress during labour, leaving your pelvic floors worse for wear at the end of it all.
Ill-effects of weak pelvic floors you ask? Think leaking of urine when coughing, sneezing or laughing, uncontrollable bowel movement, reduced sensation in the vagina during intercourse, pain in genitals and lower back – I could go on, but maybe I should stop before you stop reading.

Don’t Sweat it… Just Yet
Before you start to worry about the aforementioned symptoms and stressing out about the extra task on hand en route to post-partum recovery, relax.
