We recommend a physio check around 6 weeks post-partum for all mums who delivered their baby wither vaginally or via c-sections to maximise recovery.  This is an essential check for all new mms as prevention and education are so vital during this period.  Depending on your needs, this may include an assessment of your pelvic floor, core, abdominal muscle separation, incontinence, prolapse, back pain, perineal pain, c-section scar pain and educate you on safe exercises which will return you to your favourite sport or hobby.
