Keys to Keeping Your Pelvic Floor Healthy After Childbirth
For anyone who has given birth, a strong and supportive pelvic floor is crucial to overall health and vitality. Your pelvic floor is a thin layer of muscles that run from the pubic bone to the Coccyx. The pelvic floor plays an important role in many things, like supporting your body’s internal organs (bladder, intestines, uterus, etc.), enabling you to maintain urinary and bowel control, and providing support vital for reproductive and sexual functioning.
