Being pregnant and along with a vaginal delivery can weaken or stretch supporting pelvis structures Pelvic floor disorders, more typical among women having vaginal deliveries, also are at increased risk with each delivery. A vaginal delivery may also damage nerves, which can cause muscle weakness and dysfunction.

Physical therapy during pregnancy can treat pregnancy pain/discomfort while optimizing delivery and avoiding postpartum dysfunctions. All new moms can benefit from a pelvic floor evaluation by a physical therapist specialized in postpartum care. Early intervention helps address concerns proactively, helping new moms return to functional and active lives and possibly preventing future pelvic floor dysfunction.
