Post-natal screening and rehabilitation

 

It can be reassuring to know that you are healing as best you can. Ensuring that your pelvic floor and abdominal muscle rehabilitation is properly undertaken is beneficial for supporting mums back to fitness, whatever the level of movement or exercise they wish to return to. Occasionally things do not go to plan, and it is good to know that there is help at hand, and you are not on your own with a new baby whilst struggling to cope with distressing symptoms. 

Things routinely present are:

  • rectus diastasis (closing of the gap down the middle of the abdominal muscles)

  • scarring from an episiotomy or tear

  • pelvic floor integrity

  • continence issues

  • painful sex

  • caesarean scar issues such as puckering or tenderness

  • pelvic pain

  • retained shape of pregnancy

  • low back pain

  • stiffness and pain related to long hours feeding.

 

It's recommended that women have an initial assessment after their 6-8-week GP check, but I also treat women who gave birth months or years ago who may still have a tummy gap or related pelvic floor or scarring issues.
