Body Changes After Pregnancy: Get Your Body Back

Body Changes After Pregnancy – and What you can do to fix them!

Giving birth is such an incredible process, and definitely takes a toll on your body. Having an actual human being growing inside of you – it’s no wonder there are so many body changes after pregnancy. Here at WellMedica we offer a series of different treatments to help you get your body back, and make you feel more confident. If you are interested in a non-invasive “Mommy Makeover” keep reading!

The Change: Stomach Pooch

One of the most common body changes after pregnancy is to have excess weight and skin in the adnominal region. For some women this stomach pooch seems to disappear quickly with time. With others this stomach pooch can be far more difficult to remove. In fact it can seem as if it is almost impossible. This excess weight may actually be due to the loosening of the adnominal muscle layers. Medically this condition is known as diastasis recti, and may also be accompanied with excess skin on the stomach. Luckily, we offer a non-invasive treatment to help you lose your stomach pooch for good!

The Change: Vaginal Looseness and Incontinence

Having children tends to change couples sex lives in many ways. One way it can change your sex life is by changing the way it feels for you and your partner when you have sex. After delivering a baby the vaginal muscles get stretched. This can cause body changes after pregnancy such as vaginal looseness, incontinence (bladder leakage), dryness and pain during intercourse, trouble reaching orgasm, and an unappealing outer appearance of the vagina. All of these problems can be fixed with one easy treatment.

Vaginal Looseness and Incontinence Body Changes After Pregnancy

The Fix: Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation like ThermiVa

One option to fix all of the conditions above is by receiving non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, also known as ThermiVa. Treatments use radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue to reclaim, restore and revive feminine wellness, without discomfort or downtime. ThermiVa uses a special wand applicator which is applied externally to labia and vulvar tissues to restore normal tissue tone and function. This treatment can help treat vaginal looseness, the outer appearance of the vagina, problems making it to the bathroom, pain or discomfort during sex, and lack of pleasure during sex.

The Change: Sagging Breasts

When you’re pregnant your breasts tend to grow and plump up. However, after pregnancy many women experience lowering and sagging with their breasts. This is especially so if you breast feed. These changes are a result of the body’s natural response to fluctuations in the volume of breast tissue due to milk production. Additionally, nursing can stretch the breast skin and tissue creating sagging, and disproportionate shaping.

The Change: Stretch Marks and Cellulite

Body changes after pregnancy are inevitable for some, and this can be especially so when it comes to stretch marks and cellulite. When the body expands you can develop stretch marks, and this is extremely likely when you are pregnant and your body is expanding so rapidly. There is also a greater likelihood the body will form cellulite, and become rippled after all the changes it went through with pregnancy. Therefore, many mothers seek out treatments in order to fix these skin issues.

Some women never experience varicose or spider veins until after pregnancy body changes. Often these veins are a blue and red color, and are visible through the skin. They typically appear as dilated and bulging vessels which are raised above the surface of the skin. Visible veins can often leave many new mothers feeling self-conscious, and embarrassed.
