A Note to My Mom and a Message for New Moms
I would love to be able to tell new moms the one magic exercise that will stop you from peeing your pants when you sneeze or exercise, but the truth is that mechanism is not the same in everyone so there is no 'one size fits all' cure—you need a pelvic floor physiotherapy assessment to know how to proceed. I would love to be able to tell you the magic way to wear your baby carrier so your back doesn't hurt, but the truth is if your pelvic floor and/or your abdominals are not healing properly, your back is likely going to be angry and you need an assessment and likely some treatment to help you out.
