Pre- and Postnatal Physiotherapy​

During pregnancy, changes occur in many different areas of the body. As a result, women often experience lower back pain, incontinence, constipation, pubic bone pain, sacrum and tailbone pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

The good news is that we can manage this pain through a careful pre- and postnatal physiotherapy program.

Prenatal Physiotherapy


Labour Preparation

A strong and coordinated pelvic floor will ease the birthing process and recovery


Perineum Stretching

Stretching the perineum (the tissue between the vagina and anus) may help prevent tears or the need for an episiotomy


Core Strengthening​

Treats incontinence and other common discomforts experienced during pregnancy



Postpartum Physiotherapy


Cesarean and Episiotomy Scar Care

Scar care will make your scar less sensitive and more mobile


Pelvic Floor Strengthening​

Pregnancy and Exercise

Pregnant and postnatal women have special needs and should therefore be seen by a Certified Personal Trainer with pre- and postnatal training.

New and expecting moms experience several changes, which increase the demand on their bodies.

Some changes associated with pregnancy include:


  • Increasing range of motion

  • Improving flexibility of muscle

  • Increasing strength and endurance of the muscles


Your exercise program should be tailored to your unique demands so as to prevent injury and pain.

Along with offering pelvic floor physiotherapy, LIFT provides customized pre- and postnatal personal training packages to provide a well-rounded program for our new and expecting moms.
