Pelvic floor dysfunction and tips to help remedy it have been discussed on First Time Mum’s Chat in a number of episodes. In this episode, I’m bringing you an amazing woman to discuss pelvic floor dysfunction further, birth healing specialist and pelvic health physical therapist, Lynn Schulte. Lynn is on a mission to improve postpartum care worldwide and her whole mission and passion is in helping moms avoid pelvic floor dysfunction and have smoother births and faster recoveries.

With more than 30 years experience, Lynn has successfully healed thousands of women from all the issues experienced after birth including pelvic floor dysfunction and
during our chat you’ll hear Lynn talk about topics including:-

  • What happens to the pelvic bones in order for a baby to be born and what keeps them from returning to their original position?
  • How this affects the pelvic floor muscles?
  • How can you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles after giving birth?

How to Close the Open Birthing Pattern in the Pelvis after Birth Video

During our chat, Lynn mentioned a video from her YouTube channel which provides mums with an exercise they can use to avoid pelvic floor dysfunction by closing their pelvic bones after birth. I’ve included a link to Lynn’s YouTube channel below where you can check out her numerous videos (more than 100 videos!) but I felt that including this instructional video here would be helpful to mums.

Don’t forget to subscribe to Lynn’s YouTube channel and give the video a like.
