During pregnancy hormones can make ligaments soft in preparation for birth and abdominal muscles become stretched.
After childbirth (vaginal or caesarian section) it is important that the muscles supporting your pelvic floor, back and abdomen start to work again as quickly as possible.
Physiotherapy can help advise you about:
• Methods to reduce pain and swelling post delivery
• Pelvic floor exercises
• Posture and back care
• Toileting advice
• Getting into and out of bed easier
• Rehabilitation following peroneal (vaginal) tears
• Gentle return to exercise

Our Mum’s and Bub’s (Postnatal) and Antenatal exercise classes are run weekly at our North Ward Clinic.
