Having a baby brings about many changes...
Pregnancy and Post-Partum Physical Therapy
What is on your "Mom to Be" and "New Mom" wish list?
To be as prepared as possible for labor and delivery? To be ready to work with your body and baby as a team during the birth journey? And to have tools that your partner or birth assitance can help you with during the labor process? PTs are not typically with you during L&D, but we CAN provide you tools, breath, and ways to optimize your birth, no matter if you plan a non-medicated, medicated, or planned C-section delivery.
Is your wish to feel balanced, strong, and healthy? To enjoy time with your new baby and family without leakage, pain, or wondering if you are doing too much? To feel confident in your changing body?
Being told "You have had a baby...that's normal" is not an adequate answer! Susan and Rebecca are Women's Health Physiotherapy Specialists. We have answers and solutions to help you as you prepare for childbirth, and recover, restore and "re-fine"after the baby is born.
We believe that all women benefit from PT during pregnancy and after birth to help them as they navigate the changes in their body, and to help prepare for birth, reconnect in the early days, and to strengthen and regain in the "4th Trimester" and beyond!
