Do you know how to perform pelvic floor exercises properly?
Pelvic floor issues often come to our attention during the pregnancy and post-natal period. This is due to the additional strain the pelvic floor muscles are under whilst carrying and delivering a baby.
Whilst symptoms are common during this time, they are not "normal".
It is important that they are addressed by a trained Pelvic Health Physiotherapist.
Our clinic offers Pre and Post natal Pilates classes run by a qualified Pilates Physiotherapists. These classes can help to strengthen around the pelvis and core to assist with pregnancy and the post birth period. We also focus on stretching and mobility for the changing body and recovery.
