GUEST POST BY BECKY DYER
Remember use it or lose it, if you don't exercise a muscle it gets weak and functions poorly. The good news is, if you are doing any type of exercise that focuses on core strengthening, then you're exercising your pelvic floor at the same time i.e. Pilates, some yoga, or my online Body Beyond Birth program.
But don't be too hard on yourself, if you have really given it your all with exercise and your pelvic floor still won’t come to the party, then its time to call in reinforcements. Make sure you get a referral to a pelvic floor physiotherapist, or visit an OB or gynaecologist. Good luck with your pelvic floor workout mums and spread the word that it’s normal to do pelvic floor exercises daily, not to wear a pad just in case.
