First, let's talk about postpartum incontinence. This is a problem that many moms and dads are guilty of. The reason for this is that the enlargement of the uterus and fetus during pregnancy increases abdominal pressure, leading to compression, deformation and relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles. During labour, the muscles and nerves around the vagina may tear excessively or even break. These factors lead to a decrease in the function of the pelvic floor and a weakening of the ability to control the urethra, and postpartum urinary incontinence can occur. But don't worry, fortunately, there are steps we can take to prevent and alleviate postpartum urinary leakage.

Gradually increasing the duration and frequency of the exercise can prevent pelvic floor dysfunction and reduce the incidence of urinary incontinence and uterine prolapse. This small action can be done anytime, anywhere so that you can restore your confidence and say goodbye to embarrassment. Secondly, pelvic floor biofeedback therapy is another effective method. Patients can understand the activity status of the pelvic floor muscles through voice prompts or image displays so that they can learn to contract the pelvic floor muscles correctly and consciously to improve the problem of incontinence. This technology is not complicated, but the importance of pelvic floor health should not be overlooked. In addition to this, weight control is a key factor in improving postpartum incontinence. Obesity is strongly associated with stress incontinence because it causes relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles and increases the pressure on the bladder from abdominal distension. So, try to maintain a healthy weight and get your pelvic floor muscles back to a healthy state. Finally, don't neglect bowel movements. Constipation and prolonged toileting can aggravate damage to the pelvic floor muscle groups, and decreased pelvic floor muscle function can aggravate constipation problems, creating a vicious cycle. So, please always keep your bowels clear and give your pelvic floor health a good environment.

With Kegel exercises, pelvic floor biofeedback therapy, weight control and keeping our bowels clear, we are well on our way to improving our pelvic floor health and regaining a free and easy life. Importantly, don't be shy to seek professional medical advice and guidance. It is very important to properly perform pelvic floor muscle exercises and rehabilitation to enhance pelvic floor muscle function and urethral control and reduce the likelihood of urine leakage. It is also important to maintain moderate body weight to avoid the extra pressure on the pelvic floor muscles caused by excessive obesity. A balanced diet and moderate exercise will help maintain good health. The best time for your body to recover is between 42 days and one year after delivery, but it's not limited to this time! Always remember to test your pelvic floor muscle health regularly.
