RCM /CSP Joint Statement on Pelvic Floor Exercises - improving health outcomes for women following pregnancy and birth

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and Royal College of Midwives (RCM) believe that high quality maternity services should include access to preventive measures that promote good reproductive health outcomes for women during pregnancy and post birth. This relies on those involved with delivering maternity care working in partnershipwith women and their families to encourage self-efficacy in health improvement. We support early intervention for pelvic floor muscle training for childbearing women to minimise pelvic floor damage and help avoid the common problems of incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse during the childbearing years or in later life.
