Live, Love, Laugh... Again!
Pregnancy! What an exciting time! Your body over the next nine months will undergo a miraculous change and a life changing one at that.
Unfortunately, many women are not educated on how to avoid and manage some of the potential complications from pregnancy.
Let me be your guide and teach you about the latest evidence base research from the most effective birthing positions and breathing strategies during labour, to manual techniques you or your partner can complete to prevent/minimize potential tears or episiotomies.
I will teach you how to improve your incontinence during pregnancy and manage a prolapse.
If you are already a Mom or a Grandma or entering menopause and are having any pelvic health challenges which may be related back to the birth your child(ren), please do not normalize your symptoms. It is a misconception that you have to live with your symptoms and that there is nothing you can do about it.
In France, women are encouraged to see a pelvic physiotherapist after the birth of their child and they receive 10 free pelvic physiotherapy sessions.
Every women should be seen by a pelvic physiotherapist after giving birth. Maybe your pelvic floor is weak and you are currently asymptomatic. Maybe you have a pelvic organ prolapse that you are currently unaware of, that we could effectively treat before you have another child. We need to be proactive and properly rehabilitate the pelvic floor after giving birth to prevent any conditions from being symptomatic or worsening. There is level 1 grade A evidence (gold standard) that pelvic floor strengthening should be the first line of defence for stress and mixed urinary incontinence and that pelvic floor muscle training is effective and cost effective in reducing prolapse symptoms and should be recommended as the first line management.
