Exercising with Baby

The Benefits of Postpartum Physio

It is important to know the do's and don'ts of returning to exercise after having a baby. With guidance from Mother Nurture Physiotherapy, you’ll be able to make a smoother and safer transition back to a healthy lifestyle. At your first postpartum physio appointment we will go through how to start exercising again, which particular exercises are advised, and which ones should be avoided.

Throughout pregnancy, your abdominal muscles need to stretch to make room for your growing baby. Sometimes women will end up with a stretched linea alba after birth. This can make returning to exercise a challenge.

It is important to get assessed by a pelvic health physiotherapist from our team in order to discuss what to avoid during both life tasks and exercise if you have a diastasis.

After childbirth, some women still have backaches and pain. During pregnancy physio, you learn how to take care of your back, and also, your therapist will help you discover ways that will help you take care of your back after giving birth. This is another reason why postpartum physio is essential. Whether you’ve just found out you’re pregnant, gave birth last month, or are enjoying a child-free life, your body can grow stronger and more resilient with support from us at Mother Nature Physiotherapy.
