Are you currently expecting a child? For many women, pregnancy is an exciting time, however, the body is going through a lot of changes as it grows into a new little person! These modifications typically include changes in posture, increased pelvic floor loads, and ligament stretching and thickening.
These changes in the body can also cause back pain and pelvic floor issues, as well as muscle weakness, which may lead to urinary incontinence and difficulties triggering the core muscles.
