pregnancy & post natal
We regularly see pregnant ladies and new Mum’s at goPhysio.
There are some really common issues that can affect you as you progress through pregnancy, such as pelvic girdle pain (PGP), back pain and sciatica.
Treatments for these sorts of conditions can often be poorly understood, with many people thinking that pelvic pain or back pain is just a ‘normal’ and acceptable part of pregnancy. This is not the case and there are a number of ways in which we can help you.
These issues can persist once you’ve had your baby and you may be concerned about other issues such as Diastasis Recti (separated abdominal muscles) or returning to exercise.
With our care and attention, we can use our experience and expertise to help support and guide you through pregnancy, after your birth and beyond.

Having been diagnosed with SPD during my pregnancy, I found it extremely diﬃcult to find a physiotherapist that understood SPD & what was needed to relieve the pain. Kim has been absolutely fantastic – she is so knowledgeable in this specialist area and has gone over and above to help me every step of the way. The team at goPhysio are always so friendly and accommodating, and I couldn’t recommend them enough!
