What does a postnatal physiotherapy appointment look like?
Our physiotherapists are community based meaning they come to you. Your physiotherapist will start by taking a history of your pregnancy, birth and any relevant medical conditions. They will discuss your goals for postnatal recovery and complete a physical assessment of your full body, pelvic floor, core and diastasis recti. If there is anything that comes up in the history taking or physical exam your physiotherapist will work with you to create a treatment plan based on your individual needs. This treatment may be with regular physiotherapy or a home program you can complete independently.
