In a recent disclosure, Brittany Mahomes, the spouse of NFL sensation Patrick Mahomes and a former collegiate soccer star, has shared a crucial health update that comes as a stark reminder of the importance of postpartum care.

Brittany, who is also the mother to two young children, Sterling, aged 3, and 15-month-old Patrick "Bronze," took to Instagram on March 6 to alert her followers about the significance of maintaining pelvic floor health after childbirth.

Her message, underscored by personal experience, was conveyed through an Instagram Stories selfie with a candid caption: "Just your daily reminder: Once you have kids please take care of your pelvic floor. Seriously," she advised.

"From: A girl with a fractured back." This revelation highlights the often-overlooked complications associated with childbirth, such as lower back pain and bladder control issues, which are noted by medical experts like those at the University of Utah Health to potentially stem from pelvic floor problems.

Brittany's Healing Vacation

Although the 28-year-old did not delve into the specifics of how her back injury occurred, she remained optimistic about her recuperation journey. In a heartfelt post, Brittany shared a snapshot of their daughter Sterling clutching her father's hand, playfully suggesting that a vacation with her loved ones could be a balm to her situation: "But vacaying with my homies will maybe make it better?" Brittany, celebrated for her dynamic presence at her husband's Kansas City Chiefs games, has not only been a supportive partner but has also captured moments of camaraderie with global pop icon Taylor Swift, as both women have supported their respective partners from the sidelines.

Following his team's Super Bowl victory on February 11, Patrick Mahomes lauded his family's support, expressing his gratitude towards Brittany: "Brittany is a great wife with two great kids," he remarked. "I can't ask for anything better than this." Married to her high school sweetheart Patrick in 2022, Brittany has openly navigated the pressures of public scrutiny, sharing her insights on personal growth and resilience.

In her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit debut in February, she reflected on the dual nature of public perception, emphasizing the importance of authenticity and self-love. "People are going to love you or hate you," she observed.

"But finding your values and what makes you 'you' to be the best version of yourself is what really matters."
