Urinary Incontinence & Womb Prolapse are Common but Treatable
How Pregnancy Changes the Body

During pregnancy, the female body undergoes massive strain in order to accommodate and deliver the rapidly growing baby. The pelvic ligaments soften and widen, the skin and muscles stretch, and the pressure and weight supported increases significantly. An incredible feat of nature, yet it isn’t surprising to understand why the body sometimes fails to bounce back to its pre-pregnancy state, causing affected women to live with weakened pelvic floor muscles and its related problems—urinary incontinence and womb prolapse.

Womb Prolapse

Womb prolapse occurs when the uterus descends from its original position into the vagina. This typically occurs after pregnancy and especially vaginal delivery, both of which places great stress on the fibrous tissues supporting the uterus.

Effective Treatment for Urinary Incontinence & Womb Prolapse

While normal ageing and natural weakening of the pelvic floor muscles cannot be avoided; several pelvic floor exercises exist that can strengthen these muscles, and medications and minimally invasive treatment are also available to reinstate normal bladder control and uterine position.
