Consultation

Did your six week check leave you feeling like the focus was heavily on your baby and not your recovery from birth?

Did you have a c-section or stitches and were they examined at your six week check?

Do you want to feel confident that you are recovering well following the birth of your baby?

 

I aim to provide women with a service which bridges the gap between the six-week check and a women's health physio. Screening each woman for 'red flags' which could indicate they need more specialised treatment before considering joining an exercise class or going to the gym. Educating ladies so you can recognise if something doesn't feel right or needs more attention from another health care provider.

When it comes to our pelvic floor and core, it's worth remembering we cannot strengthen what we cannot connect to... consultation gives us the time to make sure you can connect to your core and pelvic floor and that exercise is the right next step for you.

What does the appointment involve?

An in-depth assessment of your physical recovery from birth. Lots of questions, observation of your movement, posture and touching your tummy to check for a condition called Diastasis Recti. In addition to this, an examination of your c-section scar, where appropriate, along with recommendations of where to go for further help if we feel you need it.

How much does it cost?

Postnatal consultations/assessment appointments cost £25

The appointment charge is not refundable in the event of a cancellation or non attendance by the customer. However, I understand little ones sometimes become unwell, so I am happy move the appointment to a later date or time with 24 hours notice.
