C hildbirth is a natural, joyous, and miraculous event, but sometimes with consequences for the mother's pelvic function, as well as long-term overall health. The aftereffects of even a "normal" delivery can lead to instability, pain, and all kinds of dysfunction to the pelvic area. Here, we examine some of these issues that are within the reach of the manual therapist, particularly strategies for easing scars from cesarean section deliveries and restoring pelvic floor integrity.
