Pregnancy and Postnatal care

Pregnancy and Postnatal facts:

  • Pelvic Girdle Pain affects up to 40% of pregnant women

  • More than 50% of women experience back pain during pregnancy

  • One third of pregnant women describe their pain as debilitating and the main cause of cessation of work early

  • But… Pelvic Girdle Pain is NOT a normal ache of pregnancy

  • 1 in 3 women who have had a baby suffer leakage with daily activities, exercise and a cough/sneeze or laughing

  • Research shows that professionally prescribed pelvic floor exercises during pregnancy and throughout the postnatal period prevent bladder leakage.

  • Did you know that prescribed pelvic floor exercises after birth assist reducing swelling and increasing circulation in the pelvic floor area after birth?

  • Did you know that up to 85% of women have some sorts of perineal strain during vaginal delivery?

Problems during pregnancy can often negatively impact on this joyful time and problem post birth can also be all highly distressing and impact on the bonding between mum and bub and your motherhood and womanhood.

My services are customized to sensitively meet the specific needs of each woman. I work compassionately and collaboratively with your throughout your journey of pregnancy and rebuild and recovery.

Pelvic organ prolapse

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) is the descent of one or more of the anterior (front) vaginal wall, posterior (back) vaginal wall, the uterus/cervix or the apex of the vagina (after a hysterectomy).

It is estimated that 1 in 3 women are affected to the degree that the vaginal bulge extends either equal to or beyond the vaginal opening.

 

POP can be very distressing for many women as the symptoms of POP can significantly impact upon a Woman's quality of life, body image, intimacy and exercise goals.

 

The detrimental side effects of POP can have long lasting effects and affect Women's overall health including emotional well being and physical health outcomes.

There are differing causes for the development of a POP including a weak or poor functioning pelvic floor, but the ligament support of the organs and fascial supports can also deteriorate with age, having carried babies, birthed babies, occupation, genetics, exercise and chronic constipation or straining with emptying bowels and/or bladder.

Did you know that there are non-surgical approaches to Prolapse management ?

Bowel problems can be all highly distressing and difficult to find answers for.

My services are customized to meet the specific needs of each individual bowel problem. I work collaboratively and holistically throughout your journey to a happy bowel and guarantee measurable results.
