The physical changes to a women’s body as related to pregnancy are multiple. The centre of mass changes, there is more pressure on the organs, and there is increased weight to be carried. All of this in a relatively short span of time often leads to back pain, pelvic pain and urinary incontinence. In fact, over two thirds of pregnant women experience back pain, one fifth experience pelvic pain and over 40% experience urinary incontinence in their first pregnancy – with half remaining incontinent at 8 weeks post-partum, and one third experiencing a new onset of incontinence after childbirth.
Understandably most women focus on pregnancy, labour and their new arrival, giving little regard to their postnatal recovery. The majority of physiological changes the body undergoes in pregnancy remain for up to 18 months after giving birth. This, combined with the challenges of motherhood and the repetitive baby care duties predisposes you to common conditions.
