While the arrival of a new baby brings an overwhelming feeling of joy, it can also present many challenges. Whether you are a first-time mom with questions on caring for your baby or a third-time mom experiencing health issues, CentraState offers services and programs designed to help you beyond just labor and delivery.
New Mom and Baby Online Support Group
The saying “it takes a village” may ring all too true as you juggle caring for an additional life. Join our weekly support group to connect with other moms, socialize your baby, and find available resources to address any new mom concerns. This open group is facilitated by a board-certified lactation consultant and babies are welcome.
Mom and Baby Support Group is held online every Friday from 12 noon to 1 pm.
The Lactation Center at CentraState offers a warm, comfortable, supportive environment to educate, counsel, and support breastfeeding mothers.
Pelvic Weakness and Incontinence Following Pregnancy
Pregnancy and childbirth can strain the muscles of your pelvic floor that keep your bladder closed. You may notice leaking when you cough, sneeze, lift something, or exercise. If you find that incontinence continues after you’ve had your baby, you should know it is easily treatable.
CentraState offers physical therapy for urinary incontinence and pelvic conditions. Through properly administered techniques and specific pelvic floor exercises, you can strengthen these muscles and restore control.
Depending on your needs, your customized pelvic floor / urinary incontinence treatment may include:
- Pelvic floor exercises to strengthen and tone muscles and improve control
- Biofeedback to help you know that you’re contracting and relaxing the right muscles
- Education and lifestyle changes that decrease bladder incontinence
- Maintenance of a bladder diary to aid in retraining and keeping track of progress
- Relaxation, meditation, yoga, and breathing techniques
