Birth – whether caesarean or vaginal delivery can leave you with some ongoing problems. Society talks about pelvic floor dysfunction being long term and condemning them as normal, however we are here to help and here to ensure they do not affect your activities of daily living or quality of life.

Things you may experience could be:

  • Diastasis recti (abdominal separation) – some women’s resolve long term however others will need rehabilitation. We have specific physiotherapists trained in the rehabilitation of abdominal muscle separation with up-to-date research
  • Scar tissue – whether this is vaginally from stitches/episiotomy or from your c-section, this dense collection of tissue can cause pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, inability to contract the pelvic floor muscles, pain with sexual intercourse and decreased exercise ability.
  • Pelvic floor changes – changes in muscle function and imbalances in muscles
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Bowel/gas incontinence
  • Pelvic organ prolapse

We recommend every woman receives a postnatal assessment at 4-6 weeks. This initial assessment includes an abdominal assessment, pelvic floor assessment, a review of scars or tears and a postnatal depression and wellbeing assessment. We provide you with further ongoing support for you to be able to return to your previous exercise, return to work, and help you rehabilitate following your birth.
