We encourage all women who have had a baby to come in for a Postnatal Check. We recommend booking your postnatal check from 5-6 weeks post birth. However we understand making it to appointments in the early weeks can often be difficult, so for some women it may be much later following birth that they are able to make an appointment which is also ok as it is never too late!
Your Postnatal Check will include:
- Assessment of the recovery 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
- Advise and goal setting on safe return to the exercise of your choice
If you wish to have a US scan as part of your appointment please try and come to your appointment with a moderately full bladder as this improves the quality of scan image.
