What Are Postpartum Pelvic Floor Problems?

The pelvic floor refers to a group of muscles and connective tissues that provide support to your vagina, bladder, uterus, and rectum.

The pelvic floor goes through many changes during pregnancy and delivery.

Carrying and having a baby may weaken or strain the pelvic floor.

Some women experience new or worsening problems with their bladder, bowels, and vagina after childbirth, such as:

  • Vaginal tears especially those involving adjacent structures like the rectum.
  • Problems with healing or infection.
  • Urine or bowel concerns, including leakage of urine, gas, or bowels.
  • Bothersome pain or pressure in your lower belly.
  • Any other problems or concerns related to your pelvic organs or pelvic floor.

If you've given birth in the past year and have any of these or similar symptoms, we may be able to help.
