I gave birth to my third child 3wks ago and got a prolapsed cervix

Hi Alex
I gave birth to my third child 3wks ago and got a prolapsed cervix from birth. They said that they`ve pushed the cervix back into place but it may prolapse again and will require surgery to fix. I can`t find any information on this and am not sure if I should be doing anything to prevent another prolapse. I`m also not sure if this will stop me from having another child naturally. Any info you have on this will be much appreciated.
Thanks
Jules

Answer: Hi Jules, This can happen sometimes and it is just bad luck. However, you need to do lots of pelvic floor exercises to strengthen that area. This will assist your uterus to sit back into the pelvis. If you are unsure about appropriate exercise, talk to your GP who may be able to arrange physiotherapy. Best wishes, Alex
