Pelvic Physical Therapy for
Pregnancy and Postpartum
Daphna can help you through the pregnancy and postpartum (after giving birth) period. She can help you prepare your muscles for the birth process which will help decrease tearing and help with the healing process afterward. She will also provide you with exercises and stretches and breathing exercises to perform during pregnancy as well as labor and delivery. She can also help you regain the strength and control needed post-partum. Daphna can help you prepare for a vaginal or c-section delivery.
Throughout pregnancy, many women encounter challenges such as urinary leakage and pelvic pain. As the fetus grows and ligaments become more lax, discomfort can arise during everyday activities such as walking, bending, sitting, negotiating stairs and even when settling down to sleep. Issues such as urinary urgency, frequency and leakage can occur as well. Pelvic physical therapy can not only help address these issues, but it can help decrease the occurrence postpartum as well, and ensure a smoother transition into the post giving birth phase.
Postpartum, women may experience leakage and pain issues. They may also have pain or fear having pain with intercourse, C-section and episiotomy site pain, diastasis recti (abdominal wall separation), and/or weakness of the core muscles. Daphna can help with all of these issues to provide relief, facilitate recovery and a safe return to exercise.
