Okay, mamas — we know that us birthy and yoga types are impassioned about the importance of a healthy pelvic floor. But what does that mean to you?
For starters, a toned pelvic floor could lead to better sex. (And who doesn’t want that?) More importantly though, think of a healthy pelvic floor as a sling or a bowl. It supports internal organs like your bladder and uterus.
Some women have pelvic floor muscles that are too tight (which need to relax for birth!) and some are not toned enough. Either way, a too-toned or under-toned pelvic floor can lead to issues like pelvic pain or incontinence.
At Blooma’s upcoming workshop (May 5-6) with pelvic floor expert Leslie Howard, both pregnant and postpartum women will learn ALL about the pelvic floor, how to tone or soften it, and how to figure out which yours is. More from Leslie:
The female pelvis and the pelvic muscles are an under appreciated region of the anatomy. Important not only for sexuality, the pelvic muscles are crucial for optimal functioning of the body…
In my workshops you will learn how to distinguish if you are lacking tone or have too much tone in the pelvic muscles and what you can do to start the road to recovery. You will learn how to distinguish the three layers of the pelvic floor and how to soften and strengthen these areas. You will learn that every pelvis has a story.
Take charge of your amazing body and come be inspired by Leslie. Sign up now!
