Physiotherapy During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an exciting and unique time in a woman’s life. It is also a time when the body is faced with stressors and changes that may cause discomfort, altered mobility, and pain. Women’s health is important to our physiotherapists at NDPE. We will assess you and provide treatment options suitable for you to improve your pregnancy experience.

Why Visit a Physio During Your Pregnancy?

Receiving physiotherapy during pregnancy may be practical in gaining pain relief and improving your mobility and flexibility. But there are so many ways that physios can support you as your baby grows that go beyond what you may assume.

Pregnancy can cause certain conditions and injuries to arise. Physiotherapists aim to work with you to treat and manage these. They may also aid in preparing your body for your baby’s birth.

Physiotherapists aim to teach you techniques to adapt your everyday activities and movement during pregnancy. This is vital for you to perform your necessary and beloved tasks safely and efficiently. Physios may also support you in maintaining strength and mobility as you begin to care for your new baby.

Physiotherapists want you to be able to enjoy your pregnancy as much as possible and can assist you on your journey to the exciting birth of your child.

Common Issues During and After Pregnancy

Experiencing discomfort during pregnancy is a normal occurrence, and issues may arise before, during, and after birth. Yet, these concerns can be addressed during physiotherapy sessions. Some of these issues may include:

  • Lower back, rib, hip coccyx and neck pain
  • Pelvic changes and pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Urinary and faecal incontinence
  • Prolapses
  • Pelvic girdle pain
  • Injuries sustained during birth
  • Breast feeding issues and mastitis
  • Abdominal muscle separation (DRAM)
  • Pubic symphysis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

How Physio Can Help Pre and Post Birth

During Pregnancy

Physiotherapists may provide various forms of assistance during pregnancy. This may involve manual therapy, teaching you strategies to stay safe and mobile, and offering exercises to strengthen your lower back, core, and pelvic muscles to prepare your body for the birth of your child. They may also educate you on methods to stay comfortable during the birth.

After Birth

Following the birth of your baby, physiotherapy may be of great benefit. Physiotherapists may support you in strengthening your post-birth body, teach you safe techniques for caring for your baby while moving, and provide treatment for any post-surgery issues that may have occurred during the birth.

Types Of Physiotherapy Treatment During Pregnancy

When receiving physiotherapy, treatment may include mobilisation of joints, taping affected areas, manual therapy, and massage. Therapy is tailored to your needs and stage of pregnancy to obtain the best and safest results possible.

Physiotherapists may also provide you with support and braces to wear. They may teach you various stretches and exercises that may continue to benefit you beyond each session, including hip flexor stretches, pelvic tilts, and Pilates and yoga moves. Additionally, maintaining good posture is essential for your comfort, and physios can provide guidance on how to improve yours.

Your Physio Questions Answered

How can I have physio when I can’t lie on my stomach anymore?

Experience the comfort and safety of our belly pillows while receiving treatment. If this option isn’t suitable, we may also work while you lie on your side or sit in a chair.

Is pregnancy safe during pregnancy? 

Yes. Our physiotherapists are trained and experienced in women’s health and will assess you and develop a safe and personalised plan for you.

Can physiotherapy be done each trimester? 

Physiotherapy may be beneficial all through your pregnancy. Talk with your doctor first to ensure treatment is right for you as every woman’s body and experience is different.

Can my partner be involved?

Of course. We can teach them techniques to assist and support you during your pregnancy, throughout the birth process, and in the postpartum period once your baby arrives.

How soon after giving birth can I get back to physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is often an excellent way to aid you in adjusting to your post-birth body and supporting you in caring for your baby. Your doctors and physiotherapist can discuss with you when your body is ready.
