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:
- Friends and family members told you that pelvic issues are normal in pregnancy, so you just accepted it.
- 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.
- 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.
- You were given too many exercises to do and you did not have time to complete them.
- 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)!

Lauren has provided me with outstanding care and support over the past several years. As an active younger person, she helped me to continue being goal oriented and helped me get back to training and competing at my best. More recently as a mom to two kids, she has guided me through the pre and post-natal periods as I prepared for birth and returned to exercise. Lauren is able to help get you back to where you want to be, even when you are busy! She is kind, respectful, and extremely talented. I love that she’s an athlete and a parent herself as well!Nikki, 30's Prenatal, Postpartum, Sports Injury
Lauren went above and beyond helping me throughout my pregnancy. I experienced acute SI joint pain and lower back pain starting in the second trimester and my mobility was compromised. Being a freelance photographer my body is essential to my work and I immediately sought out Lauren’s expertise to help with the pain. I was able to speak with her right away and she walked me through all of the exercises and guided me through each step along the way back to a strong and capable pregnant body. The relief I felt after following her plan was enormous and I was able to keep working right up until I gave birth. I would highly recommend her for any and all physio needs!Emily, 30's SI Joint Pain, Lower Back Pain, Prenatal, Postpartum
I have had the pleasure of working with Lauren for many years. Lauren has worked with me for a number of different challenges and through a number of different stages of life. She is incredibly supportive of my activity goals and finds ways to help me achieve them. She is passionate about pregnancy and postpartum care and getting you back to where you want to be physically! Lauren’s client centered approach always has me feeling empowered and well cared for!Kati C Prenatal, Postpartum
As a seasoned physiotherapy patient, I was impressed by the treatment I received from my latest physiotherapist, Lauren Lozinsky. Anybody who has been troubled by back spasms knows it often is not a quick fix. This time I required half a dozen visits. After each one I felt better, was more comfortable and -- armed with a series of exercises I'd never seen along with a hard rubber ball to massage the "hot spots" -- able to enhance the improvements that Lauren initiated. She is innovative and thorough and, almost as importantly, available by email to answer any questions concerning the self-treatments. Fortunately, there isn't a test to see if you remember her highly scientific analysis and diagnosis! An added bonus was that she also helped with my plantar fasciitis even though that was only something I mentioned in conversation. Nobody recommended her to me -- it was simply my good fortune to find her by searching the Internet -- but I'm obviously happy to endorse her with my five-star rating.Bob, 50's, Squamish Back Pain, Plantar Fasciitis
I saw physio Lauren Lozinsky and was amazed at the service she provided. She was professional and a great listener to my experience. She was able to problem solve and treat using her IMS skills and I was on my way to recovery after a couple visits. Highly recommended!Jamal, 40's, Squamish Sports Injury
After having an unexplained sciatica nerve problem I tried several other treatment options with not much change. Lauren was able to cure the issue with a combination of procedures.Roy, 60's, Squamish Sciatica Nerve Problem
