Post Natal Rehab Classes

We offer a post natal rehab class that runs on a Thursday morning, which lasts for one hour for four weeks. This class is located in the physiotherapy department on level two at the PRM.

 

Post natal women assessed in the obstetric wards by the women's health physiotherapist will be invited to this class based on specific inclusion criteria, as determined by the physiotherapist. These criteria include:

 

  • you had back or pelvic girdle pain during your pregnancy, which has improved
  • The physiotherapist noted your abdominal muscles were excessively stretched after the birth of your baby

 

The class aims to improve the strength in your abdominal muscles and improve the stability within your pelvis, reducing the risk of on-going pelvic and back pain.

 

This class does not provide childcare facilities, therefore, babies are unable to attend with you.

 

These classes need to be booked in advance, if you were invited by the women's health physiotherapist. Please contact our department to book these classes.

 

Please note, we do not accept referrals for this class after nine weeks post natal.
