LEARNING HOW TO PUSH CORRECTLY IN LABOR DURING YOUR PREGNANCY | TUPLER TECHNIQUE®
LEARNING HOW TO PUSH CORRECTLY IN LABOR DURING YOUR PREGNANCY IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT SKILLS YOU CAN LEARN.
Why? To prevent problems such as urinary incontinence and pelvic floor problems such as prolapse of your uterus, bladder or rectum.
A prolapse is a downward descent of these organs sometimes outside of your body. As a child educator, I know that pregnant women are not taught how to push. Pushing in labor is a learned skill and must be practiced during pregnancy so it is second nature in labor. You cannot have a nurse teach you how to push when you are in pain!
The Tupler Technique is a research and evidence-based program to treat diastasis recti. I started working with pregnant women in 1990 preparing them for the marathon of labor. To be able to push effectively in labor you need to strengthen your abdominal muscles, make your diastasis smaller to your keep uterus in the correct position, learn how to isolate and separate your abdominal muscles from your pelvic floor muscles and then practice pushing while having a bowel movement. That way when you get to labor you have trained herself to push with your strengthened abdominal muscles while relaxing your pelvic floor muscles. This type of pushing not only gets your baby out faster but it protects your pelvic floor from prolapse.
So if you are pregnant the most important way to prepare for labor is to learn how to push either before or during your pregnancy.
