As Mother's Day approaches, let's talk about how pregnancy and childbirth can change our bodies. Everyone is different but a lot of women experience incontinence or urinary leakage either during pregnancy or after childbirth.
Childbirth can affect the pelvic floor muscles, especially with vaginal birth as this strains the pelvic floor and weakens the muscles. This can make it difficult to control your bladder - it is estimated that half of women can experience urine leakage following childbirth which is known as post-natal stress incontinence. Everyday occurrences such as sneezing, laughing or coughing can cause leakage and even some forms of exercise or heavy lifting.
In many cases, post-natal stress incontinence will rectify itself in the months following childbirth as hormones rebalance and the pelvic floor muscles tighten up again. Pelvic floor exercise such as kegels are recommended after childbirth but the process of strengthening the pelvic floor again can feel like a long process.
Instead, our Emsella chair treatment (PeneloPEE as we affectionately call it) can be a great relief to many women because you experience 11,800 kegels in just 28 minutes on our Emsella Chair. You could never achieve this with personal kegel exercises alone. Emsella is a non-surgical, quick and painless treatment that can effectively reduce and treat the symptoms of post-natal stress incontinence. The treatment uses High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) which stimulates the pelvic floor muscles. The muscle contractions work to repair and tighten the pelvic floor to help patients regain bladder control.
Best of all, you walk in, sit down fully clothed, experience 28 minutes of self-indulgence, get up and walk out to continue your day!
