I got a question I had my son 3 months ago in October almost 4 and it still hurts to go to the bathroom. My behind hurts every time I do. Is there a reason, is there something I can do to ease the pain cause it hurts to sit or walk around afterwards :/

I just had my second child almost 6 weeks ago. My first is 3.5yo. Does it take longer for moms with little help to heal?

🙍‍♀️ Urinary leakage 🙍‍♀️ • If you’re experiencing this, you need to work with a pelvic floor physical therapist. • Research shows if you experience urinary leakage at 3 months you’re likely to still experience it at a year postpartum. It doesn’t go away on it’s own! • It’s not just about doing Kegels right, you also need to choose the correct exercises to strengthen your muscles. • You also want to avoid straining - don’t push when you pee or strain during exercise.

💭 Kegels didn’t work for me! 💭 • Research shows 50% of women don’t actually do them properly. • You need to be working on both quick and long contractions, as you have slow and fast twitch muscle fibres. • You also need to make sure you’re not just doing them in your car or at your desk. Do Kegels with movement, do them standing, do them when you’re lifting your kids or weight. • The key is to integrate kegels into your day-to-day activities.
