Recommends it for: any woman who has had children-regardless of the method
Recommended to Belcantomom by: Sally
Shelves: birth, health
Birth itself does not cause organ prolapse! Our cultural way of birthing is almost certain to cause organ prolapse.

Intuition is just as valuable when it comes to gaining information as books or the scientific method. We must, however, relearn what our bodies and our hearts are telling us. Healing can happen even if your history is not perfect. After 2 cesearean births I still have problems with things (Yes, I still have an area of skin that is numb, 6 years later). this does not mean that I cann
Oct 15, 2008 Audrey rated it 4 of 5 stars  ·  review of another edition
Recommends it for: all women, whether or not they have had babies
Shelves: health
Fabulous Book! I highly recommend that anyone with incontinence or pelvic organ issues read this book BEFORE any kind of Medical Intervention. If nothing else at least you will understand what your doctor is talking about and what the different procedures entail.

All pregnant mommas should read the whole book, but if they cannot they should at least read from the bottom of pg 47 through the middle of pg 51, as well as the chapter on "Pregnancy and Prolapse" pgs 69-79.

My two problems with this
Having kids is hard on the body. But pelvic floor muscle issues don't get talked about very much. Your doctor will tell you the only treatment is surgery that will just as likely make things much worse as help. This book gives so much hope for living a comfortable, functioning life, focusing on diet and posture. As simple as that, with other specific suggestions, women can deal with the effects of birth.
I read this for work, but seriously - it's one of those books that every woman should read. Awesome, empowering information!
OK, I didn't have a prolapse, but work with people who have - this book is so educational, and wholistic. I will buy it.
