Postpartum Recovery

Body And Birth Logo

Pregnancy is and childbirth is such a unique experience that encompasses huge emotional and physical change for your body. While the main focus in the postpartum days is about learning the ropes of motherhood and caring for your newborn,   the pelvic floor and core often need some specific attention and guidance to return to their best function and prevent possible long-term issues (prolapse, diastasis recti, incontinence). 


Our experienced Women's Health Physios have treated hundreds of women and are all about helping your body return to functioning well, restoring strength and mobility for long-term health. 



There are many different symptoms, feelings, pressures, and pains that come with recovering after your baby arrives - often (especially for first time Mamas!) it is hard to know what's normal or not. However, some common issues that present include:


  • Discomfort, pressure or heaviness around the pelvis or vagina.

  • Weakness in the core, loss of abdominal stability or separation of the abdominal muscles.

  • Painful or uncomfortable sex.

  • Any ongoing discomfort or pain in the back, tailbone, hips or pelvis.

  • Changes to bladder or bowel control (either incontinence or difficulty emptying).


If you're feeling any of these symptoms or you're unsure of what exercise is safe during or after pregnancy, we highly recommend you come to see us and get your pelvic floor and core assessed by one of our qualified women's health physios.
