Did you know nearly 1 in 4 pregnant women struggle with constipation? That's a lot of people experiencing serious discomfort! And there's no need to suffer in silence any longer...
Today I'm joined by Perinatal Physiotherapist Katherine Baquie, from FitNest Mama, to dive into strategies to prevent and relieve constipation before, during, and after pregnancy.
We discuss how pelvic floor strength can influence constipation, at what point you should address constipation issues and begin working with a pelvic floor physio, and the importance of pelvic floor awareness in pregnancy and childbirth.
We also cover effective tips and strategies for relieving constipation!
You can find Kath on Instagram at @fitnestmama, or via her website here.
