The Postpartum Period

Postpartum is defined as the period shortly after childbirth. As the pelvic floor undergoes major physiological stress during labor, conditions such as stress urinary incontinence, incontinence of flatus or feces, uterine prolapse, or other pelvic floor related complications may persist throughout the postpartum period. The size of the infant, the mode of delivery, and natural collagen levels can affect the presence and duration of these conditions.
