Uterine displacement can occur in women of any age group. It is usually called uterine prolapse. When the pelvic muscle becomes weak and no longer supports the uterine, prolapse happens.
Some mummies might have this problem after childbirth. The pelvic muscle is weakened due to pregnancy, childbirth or difficult delivery. Hence, the confinement period is the most important period for women to recover from childbirth. Mummies are advised to have proper confinement with appropriate postnatal care, especially during the first month after giving birth.
Women who are in the early stage of uterine prolapse might not have any symptoms. However, women who have moderate or severe prolapse will feel uncomfortable in the womb area and may have the following symptoms:
If you develop the above symptoms, you should get advice from your doctors as soon as possible. Do not wait until it’s too late.
You might be concerned that uterine prolapse will affect the chances of you getting pregnant. Don’t worry, your fertility is not affected by the position of your uterus, but may be due to other reasons. If you have any concern regarding your fertility, you may consult a doctor to learn more information about this.
However, you might be difficult to conceive naturally as uterine prolapse may cause difficulties in sexual intercourse. Besides that, the chance of you getting pregnant might reduce if the uterine prolapse is severe to the extent that it prolapses out of the vagina. This is because the uterus will push out the deposited sperms and expose them to air, which causes the sperms to die.
After giving birth, you can take some actions to reduce the risk of uterine prolapse:
Get Postnatal Massages
During the confinement period, you can book postnatal massages as part of your postnatal care. You must take note that postnatal massage is different from the usual relaxation massage. A professional and qualified therapist who is well-trained in performing postnatal massage will focus on massaging your uterus. Postnatal massage helps the discharge of lochia in your uterus. At the same time, it speeds up your body and uterus recovery and eases the discomforts of your body.
Avoid Heavy Lifting
You should avoid heavy lifting and use correct posture when lifting, especially when you are carrying your baby. When lifting things, you can pack them in smaller quantities. Meanwhile, use a trolley instead of a basket when you shop, and seek assistance when you need to carry heavy items.

Do Kegel Exercises
Other than that, you can perform a healthier lifestyle by start doing pelvic floor muscle training such as kegel exercise. Perform kegel exercise regularly as it can strengthen your pelvic muscle. Meanwhile, some yoga centres provide postnatal yoga classes. Postnatal yoga especially focuses on promoting your body recovery after giving birth.
While welcoming a new member in your family, don’t forget about your postnatal care. It’s important for you to take care of your body before and after giving birth to your baby. Remember to get assistance and advice from professionals for a smoother postnatal recovery.
