Here’s what’s happening in Pelvic Health & the community
THE "FOURTH TRIMESTER"
Traditionally, women have attended a 6-week post natal check with their doctor after delivery of their baby—to give them the "all clear" to return to exercise, sex, work, and... well, life!
Earlier this year the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists released a committee opinion on the importance of postnatal care being an individualised, ongoing process rather than an isolated incidence of care. Being a new mum is challenging, so one visit is generally inadequate to check you're doing ok!
A women's health physiotherapist can help provide your individualised follow-up care during that "fourth trimester" period after your baby has arrived. Whether it be for pelvic floor exercises, abdominal separation, continence concerns, or a safe return-to-exercise plan—we're there for you!
WOMEN'S HEALTH IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Women's Health Week is September 2-6, 2019!
Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for our upcoming FREE community events.
"The two biggest barriers for women not maintaining a healthy lifestyle is lack of time and health not being a priority. Women’s Health Week is the time to put ourselves first, for just one week, and start making positive changes that can last a lifetime."
