Post-natal re-education

The post-natal re-education concerns pelvic floor, abdominal wall and back.

Pelvic floor is a combination of muscles between pubis and coccyx, forming like a hammock. It can be compared to a “floor” maintaining bladder, vagina and rectum.
During pregnancy baby’s weight pressure combined to the increase of hormones and the child birth itself have stretched these muscles.
This is why you definitely need to reinforce muscles, and regain strength and tonus. A tonic perineum plays an important role: it holds the bladder (allowing incontinence) and prevents any prolapses.

Post-natal re-education is also important to restore the balance of the pelvis, the abdominal wall and restraint back muscles.
