3 Sacrifices Your Mother Made Giving Birth to You

3 Sacrifices Your Mother Made Giving Birth to You

We always appreciate our mums for everything they has done for us since the day we were born. From feeding us, to changing our diapers, sending us to school, and watching us grow up. Many sacrifices go unnoticed when it comes to our mothers, especially the sacrifices that her body made giving birth to us. We may have never realised the sacrifices she’s made for us even from inside the womb. 

Pregnancy and birth changes a woman’s body significantly, and our mothers are no exception. With the journey of giving you life, your mother fought to the death to bring you into this world and brought along with her the battle scars she obtained during that long arduous process.

Diastasis Recti

Diastasis recti are the partial or complete separation of the rectus abdominis, or “six-pack” muscles, which meet at the midline of your stomach. Diastasis recti in pregnancy happen because the uterus stretches the muscles in the abdomen to accommodate a growing baby. It is very common during and following pregnancy.

When you have diastasis recti during pregnancy, your abdominal muscles and connective tissues are stretched out from your expanding uterus. They’re helped along by the pregnancy hormones relaxin and estrogen. Pushing during delivery can also lead to diastasis recti. Experiencing some abdominal separation during and following pregnancy is expected.

This issue is very common among women who have given birth. In the light of this, our mothers may have experienced this in their lifetime. With proper care and treatment, Diastasis Recti can be easily treated. 

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control. It is a common and often embarrassing problem. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that’s so sudden and strong you don’t get to a toilet in time.

Urinary incontinence can be caused by daily habits, underlying medical conditions, or physical problems. A thorough evaluation by our doctor can help determine what’s behind your incontinence. Urinary incontinence may also be caused by an easily treatable medical condition, such as Urinary Tract Infection or Constipation.

In the case of pregnancies, the pelvic floor muscles bear the weight of the baby — that’s an extra 10-15KG that is being carried for a staggering 9 months! The extra weight inevitably weakens the pelvic floor muscles, which also helps with bladder control. Here, the weakened muscles send a signal to the body that you need to urinate even when the bladder is far from full — causing incontinence. 

Vaginal Laxity

Did you know your vagina is elastic? This means it can stretch to accommodate things coming in (such as a penis or sex toy) or going out (like a baby)! But it won’t take long for your vagina to snap back to its previous shape. Your vagina may become slightly looser as you age or have children, but overall, the muscles expand and retract just like a rubber band.

Our mothers may have this issue due to giving birth to you. There are markets that sell tightening supplements and pills but we cannot be sure what ingredients are included in the products and whether or not they are safe for consumption. Seek for treatments that are safe and FDA approved where you are sure the treatments are effective and will not cause any harm.

We normally overlook the sacrifices our mothers have made for us because we physically cannot see them. Our mothers are quick to hide their flaws and always appear to us as the superwoman that they are. 

In the light of these sacrifices, there are many ways for us to redeem the changes we have caused to our mother’s bodies.
