Physiotherapy and Osteopathy for Pre and Postnatal

During the pre and post-natal stages, our bodies go through a lot of hormonal and biomechanical changes. Our Osteopaths and Physiotherapists are qualified at helping women navigate these changes, helping them reduce the impact on their bodies, and creating management plans to see them into early motherhood.

Our practitioners work with women who may encounter:

Pelvic girdle pain
Pelvic Floor issues
Postural issues
Hip and lower back pain
Rib discomfort
Diastasis rectus

Clinical Pilates for Pre and Postnatal

Participating in clinical pilates during pregnancy may help promote stability of the pelvis and strengthens the deep spinal muscles which may potentially help reduce the risk of back-related pain during pregnancy. Clinical Pilates may assist in pelvic floor strength and function in turn helping you for an optimal delivery and recovery post-pregnancy.

Once you have had your baby it will depend on how you delivered ie C-section or natural birth as to when you can return to Clinical Pilates. Your birthing history is taken into full account when returning to clinical pilates. It is a great way to regain strength in your abdominal muscles and pelvic floor whilst also supporting all the new muscles you will be using when looking after your newborn.

Exercise Physiology for Pre and Postnatal

Exercise Physiologists work with many women during and after their pregnancy journey. Keeping strong and fit during this period can help reduce the risk of injury, improve health and wellbeing. Working in our gym, one on one with your Exercise Physiologist we cater for the changes in your body throughout pregnancy and rebuilding strength post-birth. Our Exercise Physiologists can also help women that have Gestational Diabetes.

Pregnancy Massage

Utilising massage during pregnancy may be a great way to stay comfortable, reduce muscle cramps and swelling, improve wellbeing and reduce stress. Our Remedial Massage Therapists and Myotherapists are all trained in working with women during pregnancy. We use comfortable pregnancy pillows to help you feel comfortable during your treatment.
