Get The Ultimate Guide To Postpartum Recovery

A Personal Message From Pelvic Floor Specialist, Dr. Casey Murphy

Do you still have “leaking”, ab separation, pelvic or back pain since giving birth? It is not uncommon for people to think "if I had babies, I just have to live with this." It can be quite easy to think that the cause was from pregnancy or maybe multiple babies..... and that this is just what happens. Maybe you just think it is normal, but it isn't getting any better, is COMMON but not NORMAL!

If any of this describes you, we want you to know that you are not alone... And we hear our clients talk about these "feelings" and "thoughts" all the time. In fact, postpartum mamas suffering with continued symptoms are one of THE most common problems that we see in our women’s health physical therapy clinic in Wheat Ridge. We see people like this all the time and they all want the same feel normal in their bodies again!

Most women don't know what to expect after having a baby and assume that their bodies will just heal naturally after a while. That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic” it’ll be as if it never happened…

But then the symptoms continue for months and years, and gradually get worse over time. You might even find yourself joking with your girlfriends about peeing your pants!

"Will I ever get back to the workouts and activities I love without peeing my pants or having pain?”

"Do I just have to live with this?"

"Why am I still dealing with issues even months (or years) after having a baby?"

"Why is this happening to me?"

When it comes to living with postpartum symptoms and pain, everyone wants to know...

Does That Sound Like You?

Another scenario that we see quite frequently in our Women’s Health Clinic is when people go to the doctor, and the doctor tells them “you've had babies, what do you expect?”... Does that sound familiar?

Because of this, women think there is nothing that can be done and so they continue to suffer with the symptoms and sadly modify their lifestyle, which often means missing out on fun times with your kids - like jumping on a trampoline.

The irony really is, that the "just accept it" approach to treating postpartum women is highly ineffective. It often causes more frustration and loss of confidence in our bodies. There are so many women dealing with this!

Is This How You Feel Too?

You thought it would go away on it's own...but it didn't.

You were told surgery is the only thing that will help you.

You went to the doctor who told you to just “do Kegels” and take medication - but with little to no result.

A family member or friend told you that everybody has this issue, especially after having multiple babies, and that it's part of getting older... so it should just be accepted.

You tried other healthcare professionals - or even Physical Therapy - in the past, but it didn't seem to help so you think it won't work now.

You rely on “Dr. Google” or YouTube for exercises that don’t make any difference (or maybe even made your leaking worse!)

What Can I Do To Recover After Baby Quickly?

Here are 3 things you can do that will help you:

  1. First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people rest for weeks, hoping that the pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed…or the pain has gotten worse.

  2. Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you recover is to do the right series of progressed exercises. The right exercises given to you by a pelvic floor specialist will help your pelvic floor muscles, and allow you to move freely again. We make sure that the problems don’t come back anytime soon or what to do if you end up getting pregnant again and are concerned the symptoms will return!

  3. You need to get​ a more comprehensive “Pelvic Floor Assessment”: Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy is proven to help people with stress incontinence. If your symptoms are affecting your ability to keep active, you are embarrassed about having to wear dark colored leggings to fitness workouts because you might “leak”, or have an enjoyable sex life again, then we can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.

Conditions You May Have Heard Of:

Have you been told you have any of the following conditions?

  • Stress Incontinence
  • Urge Incontinence
  • Prolapse
  • Diastasis Recti (Ab separation)
  • Overactive bladder

Do NOT live victim to the diagnosis!
You certainly may have one of these conditions, but it doesn't mean that it is the source of your pain. It also does not mean that you need expensive imaging to confirm this condition. In fact, more people have similar issues, but have little to no pain and function actively without limitations.
