My sister is nine months pregnant. She is having many health problems during her pregnancy. All of us are concerned about her health after the delivery.
When we asked about this, her doc suggested going for a post-pregnancy therapy. Then I searched on the web and found some convincing therapy centres.
Yesterday, my colleague mentioned a physiotherapy centre in Mississauga. His wife had gone through the therapy during her post-pregnancy days and he said they are really good at this. But I would like to hear your thoughts before making the call ]. Please share your thoughts and suggestions.
Physical therapy should be in every obstetrician's mind to recommend to their patients before and postpartum. Dr. Vanna Irving MD with practice specialty in OB/Gyn says it very well, here's a quote: “From helping relieve back and pelvic pain during pregnancy to helping women feel normal again after delivery, pelvic PT has been very beneficial for my OB patients. Pain, incontinence, and dyspareunia seem to be symptoms women think are normal after having children – until they go see a pelvic specialist and find out they can get better. Patients often realize that these taboo topics are very common among other women and feel empowered to improve their symptoms and talk with other women about what should be considered normal during pregnancy and after having children.” Best of luck.
