A pelvic floor class is an educational program designed to support pregnant  and postpartum individuals in strengthening and maintaining the health of their pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy and beyond. The primary purpose of these classes is to educate expectant and new mothers about the importance of pelvic floor health and to provide exercises and techniques to help them maintain or improve the strength and flexibility of their pelvic floor muscles.
