Pelvic Health After Pregnancy

Becoming a mother is a wonderful experience, and we know you’re looking forward to getting to know your baby. Don’t let a pelvic floor issue interfere with this special family time.

Pregnancy and childbirth can sometimes lead to pelvic floor changes that are painful, embarrassing, and uncomfortable. Our Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery specialists, also known as urogynecologists, are specially trained in postpartum pelvic issues. These issues include:

  • pain or healing complications associated with perineal tears or episiotomy
  • obstetric-related fistula or anal sphincter defect/tear
  • urinary or fecal incontinence
  • trouble emptying the bladder fully
  • defactory problmes constipation
  • perineal pain
  • pelvic organ prolapse
  • painful intercourse
  • 3rd and 4th degree lacerations

If you experience one of these issues, there’s no need to simply put up with it or hope that it gets better. Make an appointment for the Pelvic Health After Pregnancy Clinic.

This clinic is held at Emory University Hospital Midtown, on the 8th floor, and staffed by Kristie Greene, MD, of our Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery division.
