Pelvic health issues affect 1 in 3 women at some time in their lives. Prevention is always better than cure and I believe all post-natal women should have access to a pelvic health physiotherapist to assist with rehabilitation and achieve a safe and effective return to exercise. Ensuring you feel knowledgeable and empowered about your body as you navigate motherhood and beyond into peri and post menopause can only be beneficial in keeping you active and enjoying the things you love.
The postnatal appointments I offer are:
Immediate postnatal 0-6 weeks Read more...
From 6 weeks onwards Read more...
Postnatal rehab is essential for every woman. During your pregnancy your body has amazingly been adapting and preparing your body for motherhood in many ways including making room for baby. The abdominals, pelvic floor, diaphragm and deep back muscles make up the deeper core muscles and they all need time to heal and rehab alongside rebalancing and strengthening the outer muscles during the postnatal period.
The Thrive rehab options will be available later this year and I would highly recommend looking at the following in the meantime:
Knowledge is empowering. Learning more about the postnatal period can
help you feel calmer and more in control of your rehab plan.
