Tips for Pelvic Floor Dysfunction While Pregnant

May 25, 2023 | Pregnancy, Tips

If you’re having pelvic floor dysfunction or pain, riding a bike isn’t all smiles like in this photo. Urinary incontinence and discomfort is very common, especially for those women who are early postpartum and pregnant. Even though it’s common, it’s not normal, and there’s a lot you can do to fix it.

How to make the bumps a bit easier to tolerate:
🚲 Right before the bump, take a breath out while engaging your entire pelvic floor and glutes at the same time. You can imagine the pelvic floor lifting up and protecting the organs.
🚲 Once you’ve passed the bump, you can relax the breath and pelvic floor again.
🚲 Remember, spinal stability is created on the exhale.
🚲 Practice this at home first. Begin with a position on the floor and transition to a squat position, similar to the one you’re on while riding a bike.

💪 For help learning how to engage the core and pelvic floor properly to create spinal stability, you can sign up for a workshop! For even more help, schedule a private rehabilitation session in Haarlem or chiropractic care in Amsterdam.
