Pregnant & Postpartum Physiotherapy
Pregnancy physiotherapy, often referred to as prenatal or antenatal physiotherapy, is a physical therapy tailored to your unique needs as an expectant mother.
We focus on promoting physical health and well-being during pregnancy, addressing musculoskeletal issues, and preparing women for childbirth and postpartum recovery.
Here are the reasons why you should go for pregnancy physiotherapy:
This will help alleviate common pregnancy-related discomforts such as back pain, pelvic girdle pain, and sciatica through targeted exercises and manual techniques.
Proper posture and body mechanics are crucial during pregnancy to minimise strain on your back and joints.
Strengthening Core Muscles:
Strengthening the core and pelvic floor muscles can aid in supporting the growing belly, reducing the risk of diastasis recti (abdominal separation), and improving your overall stability.
Gentle stretches and exercises enhance joint mobility and flexibility, making it easier to adapt to the changes in your changing body.
Preparation for Labor:
We teach relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, and labour positions that can aid during your childbirth.
Faster Postpartum Recovery:
Building a strong foundation during pregnancy can expedite postpartum recovery and help you regain your pre-pregnancy fitness levels.
Pelvic Floor Health:
This can prevent or address issues like incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse by strengthening your pelvic floor muscles.
