My baby is a year old next week. I had a precipitous homebirth that resulted in a pubic bone rupture, broken tailbone, and herniated lumbar spine. I continue to see an osteopath and pelvic floor p.t. weekly. The worst part is intermittent pelvic floor spasms, often after a bowel movement, that hurt like 20 out of 10. I take sea salt, cramp bark, magnesium, and use a heating pad just to do anything in the moment, but it seems like I just have to wait it out - anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour for it to pass. Has anyone else experienced anything like this and found anything that helps?
