Pelvic floor and Postnatal recovery

If we have “poor” posture or spend a lot of time sitting our transverse abdominus muscles will weaken. This, in turn, can be linked to pelvic floor problems. For example, if we collapse our chest while sitting, we end up with a “C-curve” in the spine. This makes it challenging to take a deep breath, and as a consequence, the muscles of the pelvic floor don’t receive the gentle ‘exercise’ they need, stretching and contracting with every breath in and out.
