Pregnancy & Postnatal Physio

Getting a check up during pregnancy can be very beneficial. It is a good time to check your pelvic floor function, contraction technique and start appropriate pelvic floor muscle training. This can assist in preventing or treating incontinence during and post pregnancy. A women's health physio can also help you with many questions that women have on the lead up to birth around safe levels of exercise, birth preparations, advice on the recovery period and what to expect. Consider booking an appointment with a women's health physiotherapist during your second or third trimester of pregnancy for individualised assessment and treatment.

Postnatal Physiotherapy

Rectus Abdominis Diastasis(RAD).

The presence of a Rectus Abdominis Diastasis (RAD) is common after childbirth due to the two abdominal muscles being stretched apart during pregnancy, leaving a gap between them. Your women health physiotherapist can assess and determine if the abdominal muscles and the connective tissue in the middle has returned to normal. During the early weeks after giving birth to your baby, your physiotherapist can advise you on avoiding activities such as sit ups, heavy lifting, chronic coughing and sneezing which can cause repetitive increases in abdominal pressure. The women health physiotherapist can also teach you specific exercise to help you reduce the RAD.
