Postpartum Physiotherapy

Ideal for mamas of any stage! Get the guidance you deserve for optimal health and recovery postpartum.

Most women receive clearance to resume regular activities at 6 weeks postpartum. However, without proper rehab of the pelvic floor, many can develop urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pain with intercourse, and more. The belief may be that these common physical symptoms are a new “normal”. Whether you have had a vaginal or caesarean birth, postpartum physiotherapy will help you restore your pelvic floor and core so you can return to regular activities and exercise that you love symptom free.

What is involved?

* Internal assessments after birth begin after your 6 week follow up with your doctor/midwife. Postpartum appointments that are sooner will consist only of external assessment and treatment.

Pelvic Health Physiotherapy

Specialized physiotherapy used as a first line treatment in the management of incontinence and pelvic pain.

Pelvic health physiotherapy can help support you during pregnancy, prepare your pelvic floor for birth and rehabilitate these muscles postpartum. Plus, some women may experience pelvic floor symptoms despite never having given birth, or symptoms may arise much later in life. It is never too late to seek help for common pelvic health concerns!

A registered pelvic health physiotherapist has received advanced training and certification in the muscles and tissues of the pelvis and will use internal and external techniques to assess and treat the pelvic floor and associated structures.
