PostNatal Check

We encourage all women who have had a baby to come in for a Postnatal Check. Even those who feel they have had a straightforward pregnancy and birth can be harbouring muscular damage or injuries that they may not realise. The sooner you can undergo a physical assessment the better. Within 5 - 6 weeks post birth is ideal, however the most important thing is that you come in. It’s better to see us later than not at all - we understand getting out of the house in those first weeks post birth can be difficult!

 Your Postnatal Check will include:

  • Assessment of the recovery and function of your core and pelvic floor muscles, including an assessment with the Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS)

  • An individualised exercise programme to assist in your recovery

  • Expert Advice on a safe return to the exercise of your choice

  • Goal setting

NB: Please try and attend your postnatal appointment with a moderately full bladder as this improves the quality of the RTUS scan image.
