      Postnatal Care

      It is important to respect and appreciate the changes your body has undergone and is undergoing postnatally. Your physiotherapist can help you navigate these changes and prevent and manage a range of postpartum issues and help facilitate return to exercise safely.

      Did you know that 30% of new mums are affected by urinary incontinence…60% of women experience painful intercourse in the first year post birth…and 50% of women will experience pelvic organ prolapse at some stage in their life after having a baby!
