Will my vagina be bigger after I have a baby?

After a vaginal birth, it is common for the vagina to enlarge and increase in size. Generally, it is caused by the relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles. These muscles lose their tone with each birth given. So, stretching is normally expected, around 1-4 centimeters. It depends on the size of the baby and how long you pushed so not everyone can expect to have this result. This can be helped by referring to a pelvic floor specialist to help you with re-strengthening your pelvic floor. Pelvic floor specialists will be able to support you with exercises such as pelvic floor or Kegel exercises which can help strengthen your vaginal muscles.
