Project Description

Pregnancy and delivery have known consequences on the pelvic floor – women often develop low back or pelvic pain and stress urinary or fecal incontinence. Although these symptoms normally persist for a time after delivery, they usually recover. Little is known, however, about the natural time course of recovery after delivery. This study is looking at the development and recovery of function associated with pregnancy and delivery. We are currently recruiting participants who are less than 35 weeks pregnant for participation in this study. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us.

This study consists of a series of 9 questionnaires.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • This is your first pregnancy
  • Less than 35 weeks pregnant to start
