About Pregnancy & Post-Natal Conditions

Our Physiotherapists provide hands-on treatment which may relieve conditions relating to pregnancy & post-natal changes, as well as prescribing strengthening exercises or stretches.

There is good evidence that exercise can be beneficial for managing back and pelvic girdle pain in pre and the post-natal period, especially when the exercises are particularly focused on core stability, posture, and strength. You can read more about our pregnancy and postnatal exercise options here.

There is also a great deal of high level evidence for the benefits of pelvic floor exercises to treat and prevent urinary incontinence during pregnancy and after.

Hands on Physiotherapy treatment, in combination with exercises and lifestyle modifications, can help you to get through your pregnancy and early postnatal period more actively and with less discomfort.

What to Expect

If you’re seeing us for the first time or for a new issue, you will require an initial assessment with our Physiotherapists.

Depending on the reason for your visit, this initial assessment can vary from 45-60 minutes. During this assessment, your allied health professional will speak to you about your medical history, perform a clinical assessment relevant to your issue, provide treatment where appropriate and outline a recommended treatment plan to address your concerns. As every person is different, our treatment plans change depending on what your symptoms and goals are.
