What exactly is your pelvic floor? Can you strengthen it before and during pregnancy? And if it’s damaged during labour, what can you do postpartum to help repair it?
We chat with Dr Margaret Sherburn, a physiotherapist with decades of experience who specialises in continence and women’s health. She’s also a senior lecturer and academic at the University of Melbourne.
Margaret answers all of our questions about the structure and function of the pelvic floor, continence issues, and birth trauma – plus she guides us through an exercise in the studio (you can do it at home, too!). If you’re experiencing continence issues, there’s a lot you can do to mitigate or solve the problem.
