Pregnancy and delivery (vaginal or caesarean) brings many changes to your body. For optimal postnatal recovery and rehabilitation, a postnatal assessment should be performed by a qualified women’s Health physiotherapist after your 6 week check up with your medical specialist.
What does a post natal assessment at Physiohealth Women’s include?
- Pelvic floor muscle assessment
- Lower back and pelvis assessment
- Abdominal separation assessment
- Caesarean section scar management
- Postural assessment
- Breastfeeding support
- Guidance/ goals to return back to exercise
A post natal assessment is recommended at 4-6 weeks, however can still be suitable for up to 12 months post-delivery.
Our physiotherapists at PhysioHealth Women’s will take these assessments and prescribe a tailored individualised program for you to be able to reach your goals and support your postnatal recovery period.
