Pre and Postnatal Care

Give your body the strength it needs at the time it needs it most.
We understand pregnancy is a demanding time on you physically, mentally and emotionally. Everyday we help pregnant ladies get relief from pain, be their physical best, and reduce their risk of pregnancy related complications through exercise.
Not convinced? Research has proven that exercising during pregnancy can reduce the risk of complications by up to 25%.

This includes:

  • A 25% reduction in perinatal depression
  • A 40% reduction in the risk of gestational diabetes.
Importantly, exercising whilst pregnant is also proven to be safe – with no link between exercise and the risk of having a low-birth weight baby, preterm delivery or miscarriage.

Prenatal, the highly skilled Thrive Physio Plus team can help you prepare your body in a safe and fun environment. This includes advice and exercise therapy to prevent and manage pelvic girdle pain and other musculoskeletal issues typically seen during this period. Back and neck pain are common with the increase in weight through your abdominal region. A combination of hands on work and gentle and safe exercise generally yields great relief.

Postnatal, we can get you back to everything you’ve been longing for over the last 40 weeks! With particular focus on the areas of your body that are in need of some much needed help under the extra loads associated with feeding, holding and carrying your new baby. We have Physiotherapists specialised in women’s health who can ensure it’s safe to return to exercise in the capacity you want to, and with guidance from your obstetrician, we’ll be sure to make sure all the boxes are ticked for you to safely resume your most loved activities.

If you want to know more about exercise and pregnancy, or have aches and pains associated with pregnancy that you’d like to get on top of, book a time online or call the clinic on 8490 0777 to start your journey today. Alternatively, fill out the enquiry form below and we’ll get one of our experienced Physiotherapists to give you a call.

➕Postnatal Rehab with Kayla Itsines➕ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🤱🏻Just recently we’ve been working with the phenomenal @kayla_itsines to get her back to 100% after the birth of her gorgeous little girl, Arna. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🤲🏻Like any presentation, there’s no recipe approach to rehab. After a thorough assessment and close monitoring, we provided Kayla with a structured exercise regime to help regain strength and control following her daughters birth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💫Check out a sample of the exercises we’ve been doing with Kayla, both early stage and current. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔥 Physiotherapists tend to be scared of implementing crunches, but with interesting research indicating the effectiveness of small and controlled crunch style exercises in the closing of abdominal muscle separation (Bo et al. 2015), these were also included once deemed appropriate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💞Any questions, as always feel free to DM us!
