First things first

Before you get started with any exercise after childbirth, note that nothing can substitute for the professional judgment of a medical professional. Visit a gynecologist or a physician to get examined, diagnosed and hear what methods might help you heal. If the problem persists after trying these methods, Moonrise could be the solution you are looking for.

How your pelvic floor supports you

The pelvic floor muscles are located at the bottom of your pelvis/torso, and they hold everything up and together. They also support your private area’s first, second and third hole; your urethra, vagina and rectum. When you were pregnant, your baby added a lot of pressure on your pelvic floor. Delivering the baby not only increased stress on that region but could also have resulted in injuries.

How pelvic floor dysfunction feels
  • back pain & posture problems
  • not making it to the bathroom in time & leakage
  • heaviness in the vagina
  • painful sex
  • pain in the pelvic region
  • vaginal dryness & gas
  • hip & mobility issues
Why am I not healing?
  • Injuries from childbirth can range from visible tears to those that are much harder to spot. Ideally, a healthcare professional would have identified any such injury and performed stitching or even surgery if needed. However, stitches or surgery is rarely enough.
  • Before going through prolapse surgery it is important to know that exercise alone is sometimes sufficient to treat the condition. It can be worth trying before making the decision.
  • Your pelvic floor muscles may be overly tight, which is why Kegel exercises are effective for only 1 in 3 women dealing with incontinence. It is still worth trying Kegels. But if it doesn’t help, MoonRise can offer alternative training methods that might work better.
  • You might need adjust your lifestyle, exercise, rest and diet, to heal.
  • You might need to avoid certain movements that may prevent your body from healing.
  • Healing looks different for each person. Compare yourself to how you were yesterday, and the month before that.

When your pelvic floor muscles function properly, everything is kept in its place, and you make it to the bathroom in time.
