Event description
Workshop 1 of 5: Your Body After Giving Birth. Vaginal and C-section delivery. Recovery. Exercise. Sex.

About this Event

In pregnancy and delivery (however you gave birth), your body goes through a lot of change. We will focus on your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles that are in charge of your pee, poo and sex.

At the moment, information about recovering those muscles is delivered patchily and many women encounter problems when attempting to return to exercise (e.g. incontinence or diastasis) or restarting intimacy post-baby (e.g. discomfort or pain).

We will talk about:

- prevention in pregnancy

- common problems that affect 1:3 women after birth: incontinence, prolapse, diastasis (belly muscles bulging)

- recovering those muscles after vaginal delivery

- recovery after the C-section delivery

- vaginal or C-section scar tissue

- how to approach returning to exercise, focusing on running

- sex post-baby

- where to get help on the NHS and privately

- gadgets (time-permitting)
