My husband has asked me this morning whether or not I know if having a weak (very weak) pelvic floor can be a contributer to hemorrhage during or after birth. He is looking forward to our first UC but said this is one of the questions that has been lurking in the back of his mind that he'd like to be mentally prepared for if there is a chance it could happen.
I presently do have a very weak pelvic floor and have been incorporating PFE's into my daily regimen. I'm trying to maintain 3-5 sets a day of 10 long and 10 short (...hmmm, should it be more?), pelvic rocks or tilts, and an inversion a day for a minute or so. I'm hoping this helps in the long run...I'm presently soon to be 27 weeks.
I did experience a hemorrhage with my third (largest) child. My midwife at the time said she thought I'd be prone to hemorrhage because of my pendulus uterus (literally hanging over my pubic bone), although now, I'm not too sure my hemorrhage had to do with that now that I understand how much more susceptible to hemorrhage a woman is when she is dehydrated, scared and stressed...I was all three.
Anyway, this is my husbands question and it makes me wonder too. Would anyone have any info. regarding this? ...or perhaps know of any websites that talk about this?
