How Our Bodies Change From Childbirth Through Menopause

From the moment one gives birth to the graceful transition into menopause, ourbodies undergo significant and unique changes.

Changes That Come with Childbirth

Childbirth is a miraculous journey that brings new life into the world, but it also introduces a series of physical changes that can affect one’s life post-delivery. They include:

  • Pelvic floor impact: The process of carrying and delivering a baby places considerable stress on the pelvic floor - the complex network of muscles, ligaments, and tissues that support vital organs like the bladder, uterus, and rectum. This can lead to pelvic floor weakness, potentially resulting in bladder leakage.

  • Vaginal laxity: After vaginal delivery, some may experience vaginal looseness. This arises from the vaginal tissues stretching beyond their ability to bounce back during childbirth. The risk of vaginal laxity is higher for those who’ve delivered large babies or had multiple vaginal deliveries. Instruments used during delivery, like forceps, can also contribute to this sensation.

  • Sexual dysfunction: Tearing during childbirth may cause pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse. This discomfort may lead to sexual dysfunction, affecting one’s overall sexual well-being.

  • Reduced sensation: Changes in the pelvic region can sometimes lead to reduced feeling during sexual activity. This significantly impacts one’s sexual experience post-delivery.

  • Postpartum nerve damage: In some cases, childbirth can result in nerve damage, which may contribute to ongoing discomfort and altered sensations.

  • Incontinence: Those who undergo episiotomies during vaginal childbirth are at an increased risk of developing urinary incontinence, which is the inability to control urine. Those who experience severe tearing (third or fourth-degree tears) are at a higher risk of fecal incontinence - the inability to control bowel movements.

Changes That Come with Menopause

Menopause marks the end of one chapter and the beginning of another in one’s life. This natural biological process brings about its own set of changes, such as:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats

  • Mood swings

  • Vaginal dryness

  • Weight gain and slowed metabolism

  • Sleep disruptions leading to insomnia

  • Changes in sexual desire due to low libido

  • Hair dryness or loss of scalp hair

  • Osteoporosis

  • Difficulty concentrating/memory lapses

The Power of Red Light for Your Intimate Health

Innovative technology has opened new possibilities for addressing intimate health concerns. Among these remarkable advancements, red light therapy has emerged as a game-changer, offering hope and relief for many. Red light therapy supports energy production in the cells, fueling repair and regeneration.

Let’s explore the benefits of this technology on two remarkable devices - the vFit Gold® and NeoHeat®:

vFit Gold®

Designed by Ob-Gyns, vFit Gold from Joylux harnesses the power of red light therapy to rejuvenate and revitalize your intimate wellness. This gadget offers a range of benefits. With just a few sessions a week, you can expect:

  • Stronger pelvic floor: Childbirth and aging can weaken the pelvic floor muscles, leading to issues like bladder leakage. vFit Gold offers a solution by promoting a stronger pelvic floor, reducing the likelihood of leaks, and restoring your confidence.

  • Increased natural lubrication: Vaginal dryness is a prevalent concern during menopause, resulting in pain during sexual intercourse. vFit Gold enhances natural lubrication, alleviating this discomfort and making intimate moments more enjoyable.

  • Heightened sensation: By enhancing feeling, vFit Gold® makes intimate moments more enjoyable and fulfilling for you and your partner.

  • Sense of tightness: Many experience a sense of vaginal laxity over time. vFit Gold® promotes rejuvenation, which restores a sense of tightness, helping you feel more confident in your intimate health.


Now, let’s explore NeoHeat from Mommy Matters - a high-tech solution that focuses on healing trauma caused by vaginal childbirth. This device uses high-powered red and infrared LED light therapy to accelerate wound healing, boost circulation, reduce inflammation, and provide rapid pain relief.

What NeoHeat can do for you:

  • Faster healing: NeoHeat’s advanced technology aids in healing the trauma caused by vaginal childbirth, reducing recovery time and discomfort.

  • Improved circulation: By enhancing blood circulation in the treated area, this innovation supports a healthier recovery process, reducing the risk of infections and complications.

  • Reduced inflammation: Inflammation is a natural response to post-childbirth trauma. It causes discomfort and may lead to long-term issues. NeoHeat’s therapy helps reduce inflammation, providing relief and comfort.

  • Rapid pain relief: NeoHeat delivers fast pain relief, making postpartum recovery more manageable and less painful.
