One week old newborn baby

Prolapse – baby 7 weeks old.

I had my baby 7 weeks ago and have noticed a prolapse (possibly bladder & bowel) which protrudes slightly at times.  I have an appointment with my ob/gyn but would like your opinion on whether there is likely to be some improvement with time & when I stop breastfeeding.  Or am I looking at surgery?

It is far too soon to predict

You can expect a considerable improvement with the passage of time , regaining your normal pre pregnancy weight , pelvic floor exercises and further improvement when your hormones return to normal after stopping breast feeding .

So often surgery is not the answer until you have tried all the conservative measures .

Also it is often best delayed until your family is complete .

It’s good that you are about to see the expert !

Hope this is helpful
