Postnatal Body Check with a Physio

Seeing a Postnatal Physio in the weeks after birth reduces your chances of experiencing long term pelvic health problems. While a 6 Week Mother GP Check provides a medical review for mum, it’s only half of the picture. Don’t let signs of leakage, niggles or pains go ignored - nip postnatal issues in the bud, now.

Your Postnatal Physio can assist with
