What is the Natural Position of the Uterus?

The uterus is a freely suspending organ in the pelvic bowl, that is held up by four ligaments that hold the uterus in place. The ideal uterus position for a childbearing woman is anterverted, forming a right angle with vagina if the bladder and the rectum empty.

There are many other variations of position of the uterus such as retroverted uterus etc. Since the position of your uterus does not affect your fertility directly, if you have not gone for an ultrasound, your doctor may not even mention the position to you.

In this section we are not talking about the naturally occurring position of the uterus, but when the uterus moves “out of position” from your naturally positioned uterus whatever they may be.

How Does M.U.M™ Fertility Massage Treatment Help Me?

M.U.M.TM is a non-invasive technique that does not require surgery to reinstate the uterus if it is misaligned, displaced or presented with a mild prolapse.

Through M.U.M.TM, it helps to loosen ligaments and the surrounding organs and break down any adhesions or scar tissues within the ligaments that is causing the unnatural tightness to one side of the ligaments.

Hence, gently pushes up the uterus with repeated, slow and gentle physical manipulation.

  • loosen any stiffness and tension from the surrounding organs or ligaments

  • release one sided tightness or pulling

  • restore harmony of the internal organs/structures

  • breakdown any adhesions or scaring that may be present in the reproductive system

  • strengthening the pelvic floor muscle

  • improves circulation for an overall stronger and healthier reproductive system
