A pregnancy, the birth and postnatal period are important phases in the life of a woman and her partner. Good support and guidance during this phase of her life will have a positive impact on their course and the experience. In the long term, this is a unique opportunity to help a woman get to know her body. This will promote her self-confidence and self-esteem.
During prenatal physiotherapy, awareness of her body and the changes that a pregnancy brings about are central. Attention is also paid to prevention, preparation for delivery and any pregnancy complaints.
During postnatal physiotherapy, the attention focuses on both the prevention and treatment of any possible complaints. Other important goals will include the following: awareness of the post-partum body, pelvic floor exercises, core stability, progressive cardio training and advice on sports and resumption of work.
Postnatal physiotherapy can be started from 4 to 6 weeks after delivery (6 weeks after cesarean section). It is better to wear sporty clothes.
