Facts about Pelvic Health – Episode 3

Inicio » Artículos » Facts about Pelvic Health – Episode 3

This is the third episode of a series talking about pelvis health and the strengths you didn’t know you had.

The information has been kindly provided by Sandy HiltonChrista Trumbull y Peter O’Sullivan. Many thanks!

The video says as follow…

Pregnancy is normal and healthy– don’t fear it.

Some discomfort during pregnancy is normal, but it doesn’t need to be distressing or disabling. There is no evidence that being pregnant or having a natural birth is dangerous for your back or pelvis, even when it hurts. Pregnancy does not “ruin” the pelvic floor, cause prolapse later in life, or cause pain that won’t go away.

Staying active during pregnancy is important and protective. The American College of Sports Medicine and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists both recommend that pregnant women who are already exercising regularly should continue to do so, and those who are not should begin an exercise program. Exercise during pregnancy may decrease the risk of gestational diabetes and preeclampsia, and may decrease the duration of labor and risk of necessary Cesarean section. Pregnancy is a lot of things, but a life sentence of dysfunction or loss of the things you love is not one of them!
