We are here to support you during your pregnancy so that you are confident you are exercising safely, are managing pregnancy discomforts, and are staying strong. We help you prepare your minds, body, and pelvic floor for childbirth and beyond.

Most people hope that when they have pregnancy-related pelvic, back, or hip pain, or issues with incontinence during pregnancy, that the issue will simply go away on its own.

They hope that once the baby changes position or once they give birth, it will disappear. While this is the case for some, for many others pregnancy can be a time of frustration and discomfort, and many of these issues can persist after childbirth.

Does That Sound Like You?

Does it seem like no one is really listening to you and dismissing you? Everyone tells you that “it’s just a fact of life as your pregnancy gets further along”. Did you see a medical practitioner because you are having bladder or bowel issues, pelvic pain, hip pain, or sciatica? Were you told to rest and relax and to “see how it goes”?

Clients report hearing this advice, and then return to the same medical practitioner 6 weeks later because it hasn’t gotten any better and may now be worse since they are further along in their pregnancy.

Many clients were told to do kegels without any guidance even though research has established it to be the gold standard for incontinence and pelvic pain.

Has That Ever Happened to You?

Have you been given different advice from different people about what your issue is or how to solve it? The pelvic floor plays so many crucial roles, and a problem that appears in one area may actually be originating elsewhere. Conflicting information often leaves people at a loss for how to solve their Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. In frustration, many people end up accepting these issues as though they are normal.

While Pelvic Pain in pregnancy is common, it is not normal. Although the awareness of Certified Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is on the rise, many people still don’t realize there is a solution.

If You Have Pregnancy Pelvic Pain or Pelvic Floor Dysfunction,  Here Are 5 Reasons Why It Could Persist:

    1. Friends and family members told you that pelvic issues are normal in pregnancy, so you just accepted it.
    2. You sought help from other Healthcare Professionals or another Physiotherapist, but they only looked at your pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is often the “victim”, and there may be other “criminals” causing your symptoms.
    3. You saw another practitioner who was not familiar with the current research on pain, using the whole-person or “biopsychosocial approach”. This has been shown to be key to treating chronic pelvic pain and dysfunction.
    4. You were given too many exercises to do and you did not have time to complete them.
    5. You have heard that doing kegals might help with your bladder control as your baby grows, but you haven’t noticed any change and you aren’t even sure whether you’re doing them properly (hint: most people aren’t)!

If any of these sound familiar, book a call with us so we can tell you what can be done. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things shows your dedication to improve and is actually a GOOD THING! When you know what doesn’t work, you are closer to finding out what does!
