Comprehensive assessment after pregnancy & childbirth
What to expect during your assessment
Your postpartum assessment will be done by a female consultant trained specifically to detect for postpartum body issues. A three point assessment will be recommended for all postpartum mothers:
|Diastasis Recti Assessment||Physical assessment at the linea alba to assess for abdominal separation|
|Pelvic Floor & Incontinence||Internal examination to assess for pelvic floor strength & resistance|
|Vulva & Vaginal Laxity Assessment||Visual examination for skin laxity in the vulva area|
A comprehensive 3-point assessment for common post pregnancy body conditions
Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA)
80% of mothers suffer from a divarication of the rectus abdominis muscle, or commonly known as the ‘Mummy Tummy’.
DRA is often accompanied with saggy skin and an inability to lose the mummy tummy despite weight loss.
Left untreated, DRA could lead to pelvic floor dysfunction, lower back pain and a hernia.
Pelvic Floor & Incontinence
Females are twice as likely to suffer from pelvic floor conditions and Incontinence due to factors such as pregnancy, childbirth and menopause.
Signs of pelvic floor dysfunction can include loss of bladder control, feeling a weakness of the bladder, and/or involuntary urinary leakage.
Pelvic floor dysfunction could lead to lifestyle issues, reliance on diapers and pelvic organ prolapse.
Vulva & Vaginal Laxity (VRS)
As women age, relaxing of the vaginal wall can lead to Vulva & Vaginal Laxity or vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS).
This is often aggravated by childbirth, especially multiple pregnancies and deliveries, and hormonal changes that cause vaginal atrophy.
Tightening of the vulva and vagina canal can improve the optimal structure of the vaginal canal, strengthen tissue and improve intimate health.
