They may also educate you on methods 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.
