Understanding the functions and role of the pelvic floor and some of the changes a woman may find through the arc of her such as pregnancy or childbirth. We discuss how women rush to “bounce back” post-childbirth and how we ignore the necessary rehab, hormonal changes effect on the pelvic floor, as well as the uses of Kegel exercises to help restore the integrity of the pelvic floor.
