One of the most common questions we receive is, “Can pelvic floor physical therapy help me during pregnancy?”. The answer is a resounding YES! Pelvic floor physical therapy is not just for postpartum healing, but for growing through pregnancy as well. Your body goes through so much change over a very short amount of time, and with all of that change we see a lot of symptoms pop up. While you may have heard that it's normal to experience pain, urinary frequency/urgency, incontinence and more, it doesn't have to be. These are both treatable and avoidable.
The body goes through so much through pregnancy and childbirth. Whether you are in the fourth trimester or delivered your baby 10 years ago, your body made changes to accommodate a growing baby and in that time afterward it had to find its way to heal so you could function in daily life. You deserve to heal well and heal effectively so that you can return to doing the things you love without worrying about how your body is going to react or support you.
