Post-natal Physiotherapy

After the baby is born (Post-natal)


Back pain

Looking after a baby involves lots of strain on your back from bending and lifting. In addition, sitting to feed your baby, may also lead to back problems if you don’t pay attention to your posture. Our physiotherapists will advise you on ways to minimise the strain on your back, and treat any pain you may have developed.


Return to pre-pregnancy fitness

You will be given an individually tailored programme of exercises to return you to pre-pregnancy fitness, addressing any weakness in the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles as well as exercise to close any separation of the abdominal muscles. Core stability training in the form of clinical Pilates is an important part of this rehabilitation process. Realtime ultrasound scanning may be used to assist you in identifying the subtle contractions of the core supporting muscles to achieve optimum results.
