Pregnancy 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:

Pain Relief:

This will help alleviate common pregnancy-related discomforts such as back pain, pelvic girdle pain, and sciatica through targeted exercises and manual techniques.

Posture Improvement:

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.

Enhanced Mobility:

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.

If you need support in addressing physical discomforts, promoting a healthy pregnancy, and facilitating a smoother labour and recovery process, give us a call or book a session with us.
