  • Assessment of posture, sprains, strains and residual pain

We recommend that you book with one of our physios about 6-12 weeks following the birth of your baby (regardless of delivery method) for a Postnatal physio appointment.  These appointments are 1 hour in duration and have a standard format which will cover all the most important areas of your recovery. Most importantly, we can check your abdominals and pelvic floor muscles using the Real-Time ultrasound where you can

  • see an image of what’s happening on the inside

to bring you back to your pre-baby self as quickly as possible.
