Presentation overview

Pelvic Health is a hot topic in antenatal education. There is an increasing conversation around birth trauma, incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and female sexual function across social media, between girlfriends and with care providers. Women want to know if they are normal and what they can do to prepare for birth and prevent injury and dysfunction.

This presentation will cover:

  • what is normal,
  • the role of the pelvic floor in pregnancy, birth and postnatal recovery,
  • how to effectively exercise your pelvic floor and,
  • what else can be done to support pelvic health of women through their perinatal journey to be prepared and empowered for pregnancy, birth and beyond
