EMFEMME 360 and Pregnancy: Can This Treatment Help Prepare Your Body for Childbirth?

If you’re pregnant or planning to conceive soon, among all the planning and research you’re likely doing, you may be wondering what steps you can take to prepare your body for childbirth. Consider EMFEMME 360, a treatment that uses electromagnetic waves to stimulate and strengthen the muscles in your pelvic floor.

Originally designed to help re-strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and treat already damaged areas with a noninvasive option to surgery, many are turning to EMFEMME 360 as a preventative measure. But can EMFEMME 360 really help prepare your body for childbirth? 

What is EMFEMME 360?

EMFEMME 360 is a noninvasive treatment that uses electromagnetic waves to stimulate the muscles in your pelvic floor. The pelvic floor comprises a set of muscles supporting the uterus, bladder, and other organs in the pelvic region. These muscles can become weak over time, particularly during pregnancy and childbirth, which may result in problems like incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

EMFEMME 360 can be used to help prepare your body for childbirth and reduce your risk of pelvic floor disorders. Taking only 8 minutes, this is the shortest radio frequency treatment available. EMFEMME 360’s 360° volumetric heating offers fast and uniform treatment that most patients say is comfortable, even relaxing.

What Is Pelvic Organ Prolapse?

Pelvic organ prolapse is a medical condition that happens when the muscles of the pelvic floor weaken and is no longer capable of supporting the organs in the pelvic region. This can cause one or more of the organs to drop or sag into the vaginal canal. Pelvic organ prolapse can be caused by a variety of factors, including pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and obesity.

Some common symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse may involve a sensation of heaviness or pressure in the vaginal area, discomfort during sexual activity, urinary incontinence, and difficulty in passing stool. Treatment options for pelvic organ prolapse may include pelvic floor exercises, pessaries, or surgery, depending on the severity of the condition. Urinary incontinence can additionally cause anxiety and depression.

Pelvic organ prolapse is a prevalent medical issue that impacts many women, especially those who have undergone childbirth or are experiencing menopause. In fact, it’s estimated that up to 50% of women will experience some degree of pelvic organ prolapse in their lifetime.

How Does EMFEMME 360 Work?

EMFEMME 360 works by sending electromagnetic waves through your pelvic floor muscles. This stimulation causes your muscles to contract and relax, which can strengthen them over time. The treatment is painless and typically takes around 30 minutes for the entire session. EMFEMME 360 provides a temporary increase in local circulation, muscle pain relief and muscle relaxation.

It’s designed to address intimate concerns by delivering precise, controlled volumetric heating directly into the vaginal tissues, enhancing blood flow and providing relief from pain, muscle spasms and dryness. It can also alleviate the symptoms of urinary incontinence by improving tightness and restoring neuromuscular control. This groundbreaking treatment is completely nonsurgical and takes less than 10 minutes to complete, providing a convenient solution for rejuvenating your health.

Benefits of EMFEMME 360 for Pregnancy

Improved Pelvic Floor Strength

As mentioned earlier, pregnancy and childbirth can weaken pelvic floor muscles. EMFEMME 360 can help strengthen these muscles, which may reduce your risk of pelvic floor disorders like incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

Reduced Pain During Labor

Several studies have indicated that pregnant women who undergo EMFEMME 360 treatment may experience less labor pain. This may be because having stronger pelvic floor muscles can provide better support for the baby’s head during delivery.

Quicker Recovery After Birth

Post-delivery, many women go through pelvic area discomfort or pain. Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles before delivery may lead to a quicker recovery after childbirth.
