Perineal rehabilitation in practice

When you leave the maternity ward, your gynecologist will probably prescribe perineal rehabilitation sessions. Here's how they work:

  • The perineal re-education sessions take place at the physiotherapist's or midwife's office.
  • They consist of specific and targeted exercises that you can repeat at home to make them more effective.
  • It takes between 10 and 20 sessions, depending on the muscular state of your perineum.
  • They usually start two months after your baby's birth.
