Pelvic Health Physiotherapy and Pregnancy

Pelvic health physiotherapy is recommended for any pregnant person preparing for a vaginal or cesarian birth.

 

The benefits of pelvic health physiotherapy in pregnancy include:

 

 

  • Learning how to use your core muscles to provide the best support for you and your baby

  • Learning strategies to prevent and manage low back and pelvic pain, diastasis recti, constipation, urinary/fecal incontinence, prolapse, and more

  • Learning optimal positions for labour and delivery

  • Learning how to minimize vaginal tearing during childbirth

  • Learning efficient pushing techniques that reduce strain on the pelvic floor muscles

  • Learning what to do in the early weeks postpartum to improve healing and restore your core
