Regaining pre-pregnancy fitness and vitality is paramount to new mothers. Our physios tailor specific exercises to restore your posture and improve pelvic floor and abdominal strength. You can enjoy both one-on-one sessions with your physio or attend our physio-run Mums & Bubs classes, offering a safe and fun exercise experience that you can share with your baby.
Returning to exercise after giving birth
If you are pre or postnatal, your physio can provide extensive advice on returning to exercise. Specific attention will be given to the pelvic floor function and prevention of prolapse or incontinence symptoms that can arise when exercise is recommenced too soon or incorrectly. Your physiotherapist can also recommend you see one of our specialist qualified continence and pelvic floor physiotherapists if your symptoms require more specialised attention or advice. We can help you restore pelvic floor function and maintain your lower back care while also assisting in weight loss and pain management.
Pregnancy & postnatal massage
Pregnancy & postnatal massage is beneficial to the body in many ways, both physically (tissue manipulation) and emotionally (relaxation). A pregnancy safe or postnatal massage conducted by a physiotherapist or other experienced therapist will see a reduction in your aches and pains. Our qualified physios and other practitioners can adjust their massage techniques to cater to your every need.
