Dribbling urine stopped and fabulous vaginal delivery thanks to acupuncture

I came to see Dr. Emilie Salomons after a difficult labour with my first child. Originally I came for help with my lack of breast milk, but once that was addressed and I was producing ample milk, we turned to other pressing symptoms. The birth left me weak and I was told I had "pelvic floor weakness." I was dribbling urine with the slightest abdominal pressure and I felt a sagging sensation in my pelvis. With acupuncture, I have been able to feel my pelvic floor muscles strengthen dramatically. Although I was already doing Kegels, I really noticed the difference in power and efficiency before and after the acupuncture sessions. Thanks to my newfound pelvic strength, I was able to not only carry my second child to term but to also have a fabulous vaginal delivery!
