Physiotherapy For The Postnatal Period

Just like pregnancy is a unique journey for every woman, so is the postnatal period, with many women struggling with various issues during this time.

Some women find they have issues with their pelvic floor following pregnancy, which can have a huge impact on their confidence and sense of well-being. Having a baby changes a woman’s body and can cause such issues as a leaky bladder (incontinence) and back pain, both of which are not permanent and can be treated by women’s health physiotherapist. 

If you’re experiencing have a leaky bladder or a heavy feeling between your vagina and anus, you may need to strengthen the muscles around your bladder by doing pelvic floor exercises. Physiotherapy is an excellent way to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles during the post-natal period.
