Adjusting to a new lifestyle after childbirth is challenging under normal circumstances, and might be even tougher now in the midst of a global pandemic. We’ve put together some ideas to support mothers during this difficult period.
Treat the ‘Mummy Tummy’
Don’t brush it off as vanity – the ‘mummy tummy’ or a bulging pooch in the belly could be a condition called Diastasis Recti where the abdominal muscles are weakened during pregnancy, causing a separation at the midline of the abdomen.
If left untreated, the lack of core strength may lead to common issues like chronic bad pain and muscular imbalances. In rare cases, a hernia could also occur where the organs protrude into the open muscles.

Fast & Effective, Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
With pregnancy, the hormonal changes and weight gain can cause a lot of skin laxity, leading to saggy skin especially around the belly, thighs, breast and butt areas. This gets harder to treat over time as the effects of aging set in. Mummies who are pressed for time would be pleased to know that there are easy 15-30 minute treatments that are non-surgical and highly effective. This is done through our Exilis Ultrasound & Radiofrequency treatment which is proven to stimulate collagen growth and firm skin.
Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment
After women undergo childbirth or menopause, the vaginal muscles and tissues can experience laxity (just like other muscles). This can cause problems like painful intercourse, discomfort when exercising, and urinary incontinence.
Our non-surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation works by using Exilis Ultrasound & Radiofrequency to produce new collagen and plump up skin. As a result, women experience an increase in skin tightness and sexual satisfaction. This treatment also helps eliminate stress incontinence, a common issue for women who have given birth.
Regain Pelvic Floor Strength
Regaining the pre-pregnancy body is often on the wish list of new mums, and it’s important to note that the Pelvic Floor should be the first muscle group to focus on as this is where a lot of stress and weakness is caused during pregnancy. The Pelvic Floor muscles also support a strong core and stable posture, which is important for new mums as they do a lot of carrying of the baby.
Signs of a weak pelvic floor include stress incontinence (e.g. leaking urine during sneezing, coughing or a physical activity) or lower back or hip pain.
Our treatment to strengthen the pelvic floor uses HIFEM Technology to activate over 11,000 Kegels or Pelvic Floor contractions. Positive side effects include stronger core and back muscles, as well as increased intimate satisfaction.
