When our babies aren’t feeding or sleeping well, we’re the first to research it like crazy and seek help from other mums. When our child has a mysterious rash or complains of a sore tummy, we begin Googling or take them to get checked out right away.
When there’s a problem in our family, we immediately address it. Our nurturing nature implores us to ensure everyone else is ok.
Do you do the same for yourself?
In spite of the fact that childbirth wreaks some serious havoc on mothers’ bodies, it seems that post-childbirth, our attention instantly switches to caring for our kids.
In a study of over 1300 women, more than two-thirds (69%) reported experiencing at least one physical health problem after childbirth and yet other research has found that as many as 40% of women don’t even bother to visit the doctor for a postpartum check-up.
We put up with symptoms like headaches, backaches, fatigue and sometimes even abdominal and pelvic pain, chalking them up as things that just come with the territory of the rigours of labour, periods and generally being a mother.
In comparison to pains like these, a little bit of bladder leakage when you go running or jump on the trampoline with the kids is often something not even worth thinking about let alone mentioning or actually seeking help for.
Many women have never even bothered to find out that there are, in fact, some very simple treatments that you can use to restore your body back to its pre-baby state, and they could even improve your sex life.
But there are.
And in even better news, not only are they non-surgical, but they’re completely non-invasive. For some, all you really need to do is sit on a chair- and what mum couldn’t use a little more time just putting her feet up?
You’ve probably heard of Kegel exercises, perhaps your doctor has even advised you to do them, but how often do you actually remember to? And are you even sure you’re doing them right?
The Elsa Clinic offers a range of life-changing treatments to improve the looseness or vaginal laxity that often follows having children (and only gets worse with age!)
The Emsella Chair
The Emsella chair, used at The Elsa Clinic, is a game-changing device for anyone with a weak pelvic floor or more serious incontinence problems.
It uses electromagnetic energy to produce 11,000 pelvic floor contractions in 30-minutes. In just six sessions of using the Emsella chair, the pelvic floor can be almost completely restored to its pre-baby state.
The Viveve is another non-surgical vaginal treatment, which tightens and tones the vaginal canal. It uses deep heat to cause contraction of the vaginal collagen tissues.
When used on the tissue on either side of the urethra, a natural collagen sling is created that can treat stress-incontinence without the need for surgery. It only takes about 40 minutes to perform this treatment in The Elsa Clinic and requires little to no down-time.
The Emsculpt is ideal for any mum who experienced some abdominal separation during childbirth or has struggled to restore tightness to the tummy area post-childbirth.
A single treatment is the equivalent of doing approximately 20,000 sit-ups or squats. It uses the same technology as the Emsella chair to help restore the lax abdominal muscles to their pre-baby state and help you regain definition to the abdominal area.
The Elsa Clinic is now conveniently located opposite Westfield Miranda, where you’ll be in the confident and capable hands of Dr Jessup.
Dr Jessup is a female gynaecologist, surgeon and fertility specialist who has 5 children of her own and pioneered the introduction of these amazing non-surgical devices into Australia.
Currently, the Elsa Clinic are offering Mums of the Shire a special spring offer on their “Core and Floor Programme”.
This programme aims to kickstart your post-baby self with a safe and functional treatment that targets urinary post-delivery incontinence, tightens your abdominal muscles, decreases rectus muscle separation and prevents injury when returning to your normal exercise routines.
You can receive 50% off the recommended retail price for this treatment package until the end of October. This is an introductory offer only and is unlikely to ever be repeated!
Care for yourself as you would for your family so that you can regain the freedom to run when you want, laugh as hard as you like, and spend as much time as you want jumping with your kids without having to sprint to the toilet! Because we all deserve the love we show our children.
