What the Doctors Can Say about
You’ve spent the past 9 months (or maybe every longer) preparing for the new bundle of joy you’ve just brought into the world, but probably little to no time learning about the changes and challenges you will face during the postpartum period. We want every expecting and postpartum mother to know these important things to help her get through this exciting but also difficult time.
- Just because your OB says “everything looks fine” at your 6-week follow-up appointment doesn’t mean you’re supposed to feel healed physically or emotionally. Your body will probably take closer to three months to start to feel better.
- The leaking urine and the bleeding will get better, but you may be joining your newborn in diapers for a few weeks. Don’t be alarmed by the bleeding and leaking urine (even if you have had a cesarean section) that may be soaking your pads during your first few weeks.
- Take care of yourself down there! Stool softeners to reduce constipation and peri bottles when you pee can really help ease the discomfort of the first few weeks. Ice is also very helpful in reducing inflammation and pain. Consider starting pelvic floor physical therapy to help with pain from tight muscles or scar tissue and urinary incontinence if these issues persist a few months after delivery.
- About 1 in 7 women develop postpartum depression, although it’s rarely discussed amongst friends and family. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If one of your friends or family members has just given birth, don’t forget to check in on them.
- Things do get easier and better. It may feel like a never-ending cycle of feeding, crying, and not sleeping, but things do get easier and better every day.
Dr. Eilber, Dr. Anger, and Dr. Scott are the “Down There Doctors,” who are a team of urogynecologists and are a powerful resource for all things people are generally hesitant to talk about. They are also the authors of the newly released book, A Woman’s Guide to Her Pelvic Floor: Watt the F*@# Is Going on Down There?
They are urogynecologists committed to improving women’s lives by providing education and treatment for pelvic health problems. They are moms, wives, wellness experts, and surgeons who are passionate about using evidence-based medicine, holistic approaches, and our combined 50 years of experience to motivate and empower women with knowledge and control over what is going on down there!
The Down There Doctors wrote this book because they felt it was long overdue and felt women shouldn’t have to figure out many difficult things on their own.
