Post Pregnancy Assessment - Vital Treatment for Restoring the Natural Function of the Pelvis Post-Pregnancy

Are you 6-12 weeks post-pregnancy? If so, Post Pregnancy MOT can be a real lifesaver in the early few days and weeks following childbirth, especially in moments of pain and dysfunction.

Our Clapham-based therapists recommended that every woman have a screening at 6-12 weeks post-birth, even those moms with an uncomplicated recovery period. 

Treatment can be built into your own post-natal recovery plan to help you feel yourself again, regain your body strength and avoid long-term issues. Specifically, a Post-Pregnancy screening can highlight any areas you may need to address to prevent long-term pain or dysfunction. It can also help to guide you safely back to pre-pregnancy exercise and fitness levels over a suitable period.  

Our Post-Pregnancy MOT offers a thorough and in-depth assessment of all issues related to pregnancy and childbirth.

Completely individual to you, the consultation includes an exam of your pelvic floor, pelvis, sacroiliac joint & lumbar spine, abdominals & scar tissue. It’s vital for restoring the natural function of the pelvis and reducing further injury.

Located conveniently in Clapham, our clinic is an ideal haven for busy mums. We're accustomed to having little ones around, and our facilities are equipped with baby-changing amenities to ensure a stress-free visit.

Benefits of Early Post-Pregnancy Treatment

Sometimes physical therapy is provided in the hospital, however, if you have a home birth or are discharged early, you may not be lucky enough to see a physiotherapist. Regardless of the type of delivery that you have had, your body can feel sore and painful for many reasons.

A specialist can assist with c-section pain, swelling, and scar tissue management to prevent adhesions or discomfort as your surgery site recovers.

For Mums birthing vaginally, bruising or stitches are very common. Treating these issues can help you sit, walk, function much more comfortably, and return to sexual activity without discomfort.

Other reasons to see a therapist in the early post-natal period include musculoskeletal problems such as pelvic pain (difficulty walking, going upstairs or standing on one leg), back pain or neck pain.

These types of pain can be debilitating and affect your ability to care for your baby effectively. Although it can be a considerable effort to make an appointment, Mums usually feel much better after 1 or 2 visits.

The sooner you address these types of pain, the better. Musculoskeletal pain can result from instability and stretchiness after pregnancy, and in particular, a gap in the abdominal muscles can cause poor postures and extra loading on your back.

Starting the appropriate exercises and wearing adequate support can assist in the recovery of your abdominal muscles. This is best started in the first few weeks following the birth of your baby.
