Physiotherapy During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an exciting and unparalleled period in a woman’s life. However, it may also present challenges such as discomfort, altered mobility, and pain due to bodily changes and stressors. At NDPE, we prioritise women’s health, and our physiotherapists will assess your condition and offer tailored treatment options to enhance your pregnancy experience.

Why Visit a Physio During Your Pregnancy?

{Receiving physiotherapy} during pregnancy may be a valuable means to attain pain relief and enhance your mobility and flexibility. However, physios have much more to offer as your baby grows than 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 are dedicated to making the most of your pregnancy journey and supporting you as you approach 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

During pregnancy, physiotherapists may offer numerous forms of assistance. This may include manual therapy, teaching you strategies for safety and mobility, and providing exercises to strengthen your lower back, core, and pelvic muscles, thus preparing your body for the birth of your child. They may also educate you on how to stay comfortable during the birth.

After Birth

Physiotherapy may also be highly beneficial after you have given birth to your baby. Physiotherapists may aid you in strengthening your post-birth body, teach you safe ways to care 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 offer supports and braces for you to wear. You have the opportunity to learn numerous stretches and exercises that may be beneficial even beyond each session, such as hip flexor stretches, pelvic tilts, and Pilates and yoga moves. Ensuring good posture is vital for your comfort, and physios may provide you with tips to enhance yours.

Your Physio Questions Answered

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

We offer customised belly pillows that ensure your comfortable and safe positioning during treatment. If this option doesn’t suit you, we can also provide treatment while you’re lying on your side or seated in a chair.

Is pregnancy safe during pregnancy? 

Yes. Our physiotherapists are knowledgeable and experienced in women’s health and will conduct an assessment to design a safe and individualised plan for you.

Can physiotherapy be done each trimester? 

Physiotherapy may offer advantages throughout your pregnancy. It’s important to have a conversation with your doctor beforehand to determine if treatment is appropriate for your specific body and experience, as each woman’s condition is unique.

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 a wonderful way to assist you in adapting to your post-birth body and in caring for your baby. Your doctors and physiotherapist can have a conversation with you about when your body is ready.
