Ante and Postnatal

Becoming pregnant and having a baby can be the most special and magical time of your life. However your pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period can affect your posture, pelvic floor and abdominal muscles and there tends to be little provision for postnatal rehabilitation.

Physiotherapy can be helpful in relieving pregnancy related back and pelvic girdle pain with soft tissue techniques, movement strategies, exercises and discussing if support devices for example taping techniques and sacroiliac support belts are appropriate for your condition.

We offer support and treatment for new moms who are struggling to regain strength at their pelvic floor and core following birth, we can enhance the function around the trunk if a Diastasis Recti (tummy gap) is persisting – see separate section and Mummy MOT page

Scar release work is also available to help with restoring mobility at a C-Section scar.

For ladies wishing to return to exercise and sport after pregnancy we can assist you in preparing and training your body ready for a return to activity.
