Pregnancy and Post-Partum Evaluation and Treatment

What is on your "New Mom" wish list? To feel balanced, strong, and fit? To enjoy time with your new baby and family? Pregnancy and Childbirth bring about many changes in the body, including soft tissue lengthening, strength and coordination changes, and postural alignment challenges. Many women benefit from guidance and help during pregnancy and delivery as they learn to re-connect with their bodies and recover, regain, and revitalize their core, spine, and pelvis strength and mobility. As Physical Therapy Women’s Health Specialists, we work with women in a one-on-one setting or in a more generalized exercise class setting to help them reconnect, restore, and revitalize their post-partum body. Realizing that each woman has different needs and time frames, we are offering several programs that allow moms to explore the best option for her.
