👩🏽 Happy #Thrivinthursdays!
Today we’re talking about PROLAPSE aka pelvic organ prolapse aka “That wasn’t there before!”. I recently had the pleasure of talking about this with Ali and Karly on their podcast @Birthkweens so I wanted to give you a quick overview of what prolapse is in case you missed it!
Watch this 8ish-minute video and following pictures for some info on:
What prolapse is.
What types of prolapse there are.
How prolapses are graded by severity.
Prevention of prolapse.
Check out the Pelvic Guru illustrations at the end of the video, to better visualize:
Types of prolapse
Cystocele (bladder pressing on the front wall of the vaginal canal)
Uterine prolapse (uterus)
This is all GREAT info ( if I do say so myself 😂), but I do feel it’s still the bare minimum so please go and listen to the podcast and/or get in contact with me if you have any questions or want more info!
