Understanding the Pelvic Floor

The pelvic floor muscles are an essential group of muscles that support the pelvic organs and play a vital role in bladder and bowel control, plus contribute to deep core strength. Postpartum women often experience issues like urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse due to the strain their bodies undergo during childbirth. By focusing on targeted pelvic floor exercises, women can effectively strengthen and/or release these muscles, promoting better bladder control and overall pelvic health.

In a nutshell, the AlphaMamas programs are designed to help you stop peeing yourself when you run, jump, sneeze, cough, or laugh. The programs are also designed to help you regain balance in your pelvic floor, whether you’re dealing with a overactive (hypertonic) or underactive (weak) pelvic floor.
