Physiotherapy for Pregnant Women

Physiotherapists can work with women to help them prepare their bodies for pregnancy including ensuring the body is ready to carry a baby.

Physiotherapy Assists with Posture Changes during Pregnancy

Pregnancy puts a huge strain on a woman’s body.

The physiological changes cause postural adaptations that often cause back pain and pelvic pain that is associated with pregnancy.

Core stability training with a physiotherapist is one way to help prevent and treat back pain during and following pregnancy.

You Learn How to Push Effectively During Labour

Using their knowledge, pelvic floor physiotherapists can help teach women how to perform mindful breathing strategies to control their pelvic floor during childbirth. Pushing correctly involves practice with pelvic floor muscles in advance to reduce the chances of pelvic floor trauma and subsequent problems.

Physiotherapy Assists with Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Throughout pregnancy and labour, a woman’s pelvic health can be compromised. Some conditions that can arise from trauma to a woman’s pelvic floor include incontinence, pain during intercourse, and pelvic organ prolapse.

After a woman has had a baby, an assessment and a plan for rehabilitation will assist in the recovery of her pelvic floor.
