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 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 give rise to specific conditions and injuries. Physiotherapists aim to collaborate with you to manage these challenges. Additionally, they may assist in preparing your body for your baby’s birth.

Physiotherapists aim to teach you ways to adapt your everyday activities and movement while pregnant. This is important so that you can continue doing what you need and love to do safely and efficiently. Physios may also assist you to stay as strong and mobile as possible when 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 play a significant role during pregnancy, providing various forms of assistance. This may involve manual therapy, teaching you strategies to maintain safety and mobility, 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 birth.

After Birth

Physiotherapy may also be significantly beneficial after you have given birth to your baby. Physiotherapists may assist you to strengthen your post-birth body, teach you ways to care for your baby by moving safely, and provide treatment options post-surgery for issues that may have occurred during the birth.

Types Of Physiotherapy Treatment During Pregnancy

When undergoing physiotherapy, treatment may involve mobilisation of joints, taping affected areas, manual therapy, and massage. The therapy is individualised to suit your needs and stage of pregnancy, ensuring the best results possible.

Physiotherapists may also provide you with support and braces to wear. There are many stretches and exercises you can also learn to do that aim to aid beyond each session, such as hip flexor stretches, pelvic tilts, and Pilates and yoga moves. Maintaining good posture is also crucial to your comfort, and physios may point out ways you can improve yours.

Your Physio Questions Answered

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

Our belly pillows are designed to provide you with comfort and safety while you lie down during treatment. If this doesn’t work for you, we can also work while you’re lying on your side or seated in a chair.

Yes. Our physiotherapists are skilled and experienced in women’s health and will evaluate your needs to create a safe and tailored 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.
