::: Womb Physiology 101 :::
Normally the uterus leans slightly over the bladder in the center of the pelvis, about one and a half inches above the pubic bone. It is held in this position by muscles, the vaginal wall and ligaments that attach it to the back, front, and sides of the pelvis. Uterine ligaments are made to stretch to accommodate a growing fetus inside and to move freely when the bladder or bowel is full. The ligaments and muscles can weaken and loosen, causing the uterus to fall downward, forward, backward or to either side. Just a few extra ounces sitting on blood and lymph vessels can cause havoc throughout the different systems in the body. A shift in position of the uterus causes pressure on the blood vessels, lymphatic vessels and nerves that feed the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. The uterus can also put pressure on the other pelvic organs such as the bladder, rectum or ovaries, all of which leads to congestion and an acidic environment in the pelvis.
::: Bring Your Womb :::
Pelvic massage plays an important role in strengthening and toning the uterine ligaments. It is like exercising a muscle. When you practice womb massage you are nourishing the blood flow to the ligaments, which in turn support the uterus to be in optimal center position. Your ovaries, and fallopian tubes also glean the benefits of this healthy flow of nutrients, as they have their very own blood supply! As more nutrient, rich blood is circulated to the pelvis, congestion clears, and health is reclaimed. Bring your womb into center… She will thank you!
