Post Natel Assessments

Post Natel Assessments

We are so pleased to be able to offer this very important service.  The last 2 years have been difficult, to say the least, especially for those becoming mums for the first time.  Often these women were unable to follow the birth plan they wanted to, or receive the care they needed postnatally.  It’s so important not to forget about the importance of pre and post-natal care.  Ideally, a visit to the women’s health physio should be made between 4-8 weeks postnatally, regardless of the type of birth you have had.

It’s easy to get caught up in the haze of sleep deprivation and all that newborn crazy time, ignoring our bodies, and the signs that can lead to a long-term concern.

During a postnatal assessment we will:

  • discuss the circumstances of the birth, your goals and prior exercise levels
  • assess DRAM (abdominal separation)
  • assess pelvic floor (either during a real-time ultrasound or vaginal assessment if appropriate)
  • assess abdominal control
  • check c section or perineal scars
  • provide assessment and treatment of any musculoskeletal ailments, especially neck/shoulder and low back
  • prescribe an appropriate pelvic floor and core rehabilitation program, and/or facilitate a 1:1 supervised gym program in our onsite pilates studio
  • educate on the do’s and don’ts of returning to exercise and sport
  • provide support wear as needed
  • support you through exercise with our pilates and mums and bubs classes

The ideal time for a postnatal assessment is between 4-8 weeks post natel, but it’s never too late.  Please call the clinic for more information.
