You’d never heard of a pelvic organ prolapse before ,right? Yeah, it’s that delightful surprise you eventually find out about after you have a baby that no one really warned you about before.
For those of you who still don’t know or aren’t quite sure, Pelvic Organ Prolapse is where your bladder, bowel or womb descend lower in your pelvis due to lack of support and may protrude out through the openings of your pelvis when more severe. Essentially, what’s meant to be up and on the inside drops low or pushes to the outside.
It can be an upsetting experience to discover it and the symptoms can range from being uncomfortable to distressing. But help is available. I fit a range of supports for prolapse called pessaries. So trust that you are in good hands and make a consultation.
I was so concerned at 25 weeks of pregnancy, as I had severe pain in my pelvis, so much so that I could hardly walk or move. But with Lorraine’s help, my pain lessened over a few weeks and then it went away completely, letting my enjoy the last weeks of my pregnancy, painfree! I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.
