Pre- and Post-natal Physiotherapy

Many women in the childbearing year wish to commence or continue with their exercise programs during and post pregnancy to maintain their health and quality of life. The traditional medical advice has been for exercising women to reduce their habitual levels of exertion in pregnancy and for non-exercising women to refrain from initiating strenuous exercise programs. This advice was primarily based on concerns that exercise could affect early and late pregnancy outcomes. However, recent investigations focus on both aerobic and strength conditioning exercise regimens in healthy pregnant or postnatal women indicate that moderate exercise does not increase adverse pregnancy outcomes or quantity or composition of breast milk.

Exercise programming:

During pregnancy both the client and developing baby are at a higher risk of exercise induced complications due to physiological and morphological changes. During the post-natal period extra care is required to ensure proper musculoskeletal recovery

The intensity and duration of exercises should be considered to avoid any warning signs.

Exercise may include:

  • Resisted band training in pre and post natal training
  • Chair workout
  • Yoga therapy for the pre and postnatal ladies
  • Pilates basic moves
  • Standing pilates
  • Partner training
  • Physio ball section
  • Pelvic Floor & Continence
