Pregnancy & Post-partum
It is our view that postpartum and antenatal pelvic floor physiotherapy is a necessity, not a luxury, regardless of your mode of delivery. We hope that soon, every New Zealand woman will have access to a pelvic floor physiotherapist to guide them antenatally and to provide post-partum care and advice. This vision is part of a larger international movement with healthcare professionals and post-partum women. Watch this space!
What we can help with:
*Pelvic floor muscle training and perineal massage to prepare for birth
*Pelvic floor muscle training postpartum
