  • Understanding the Anatomy and Function of your Pelvic Floor
    lower abdomen the bladder the uterus and the rectum The pelvic floor not only supports these structures but also helps a woman to maintain control over urine flow when voiding her bladder and control over lower bowel function when voiding her rectum The pelvic floor includes many muscles that work together and are almost constantly active This continuous activity is needed to help keep the pelvic structures supported Other tissues called fascia and ligaments help the muscles support the organs and structures of the lower abdomen The pelvic floor muscles and these tissues also provide structural support for the pelvic openings the urethra the vagina and the anus These openings are attached to the pelvic floor so that the pelvic floor muscles can act on them The pelvic floor muscles are relaxed right before and during voiding The tone of the pelvic floor muscles at rest for maintaining urinary continence avoiding unwanted leaking of urine may be more important than the strength exerted by the muscles when these are actively contracted The nerves of the pelvic floor and lower abdominal structures coordinate and control the structures through circuits in the brain and spinal cord It is important to know that

  • Impact of Pregnancy on Pelvic Floor Integrity
    pressure on the pelvic floor by the fetus during pregnancy can contribute to pelvic floor weakening There is also an anatomical effect of the pregnant uterus on the bladder In the first trimester the increased weight of the uterus presses directly on the bladder and can compress it predisposing to urinary leakage In the second trimester the uterus enlarges and rises up and out of the pelvis to become an abdominal organ The pressure on the bladder lessens In the third trimester after part of the fetus descends into the pelvis there is again direct pressure on the bladder At this stage the pressure on the bladder and the reduced space for the bladder to expand as it fills with urine can cause a tendency to leak urine When the mother gains a lot of weight during pregnancy or if a multiple birth is expected the occurrence of pelvic floor weakening is likely A multiple birth pregnancy introduces extraordinary physical demands on the mother s body These women have a remarkably high prevalence of pelvic floor symptoms Pregnancy itself more than childbirth appears to contribute to altered long term pelvic floor function in later life A possible cause is the influence of the hormones of pregnancy The hormone relaxin with levels highest in the second trimester may have the most significance This hormone has been associated with relaxation and structural effects on the connective tissue of the pelvic floor during the third trimester and childbirth These effects reduce the strength of the pelvic floor to help ease the birthing process The evidence also shows that some obstetric factors may cause partial damage to the pelvic floor nerves in some women Effects on a particular nerve the pudendal nerve can cause weakness of the pelvic floor muscles and relaxation of the

  • Pelvic Floor Integrity during Childbirth
    s later years Millions of women are giving birth every year A woman s experience in childbirth is individual Each woman will have a tolerance level that is different from the next Many women experience pelvic floor trauma from spontaneous obstetric laceration episiotomy or both Delivery related changes may lead to a decrease in pelvic floor strength and may predispose to symptoms of weakening Clinical studies have attempted to discover particular obstetric events that can lead to the development of incontinence and pelvic organ descent Obvious causes include large babies and difficult deliveries marked by lengthy pushing phases with and without instrumentation No clear single event has been found to be responsible postpartum pelvic floor dysfunction probably arises from a combination of physiological injuries Childbirth is a normal physiological event in a woman s life but it introduces extraordinary physical demands from the mother For example in childbirth the levator ani muscles have to stretch by anywhere from 25 to 250 depending on the capacity of the muscles to stretch in a given woman Amazingly most women experience little damage In some the levator ani may overstretch during vaginal delivery and this is associated with symptoms of pelvic floor weakening Weak levator ani muscle functions are a hallmark of general pelvic floor dysfunction Nerve damage has also been associated with urinary incontinence and can contribute to pelvic organ descent Recent studies suggest that compared with spontaneous vaginal delivery elective Caesarian section is not associated with a significant reduction in the risk of pelvic floor disorders It does not seem to be an effective way to reduce the prevalence of pelvic floor disorders The cornerstone of obstetrical care is the safe birth of a child in a manner that is as non traumatic as possible to both mother and child Looking
