Pelvic Organ Prolapse: A Proactive Approach to Prevention
When women give birth, they expect a baby and then the placenta to come out, but not many moms are expecting their bladder or uterus to come out! When this event happens, it is called pelvic organ prolapse. Women are unfortunately uninformed about many aspects of how pregnancy and birth can affect their bodies. Midwives play a key role in empowering women with knowledge and awareness so their clients have an opportunity to make choices in their pregnancy and birth that can help prevent pelvic organ prolapse.
