At Prima Women’s Health, we support women with a range of antenatal services including specialist physiotherapy, pregnancy health coaching, and 1:1 prenatal Pilates.
We are here to help
Pregnancy is a wonderful and exciting time in a woman’s life. It can also be a challenging and anxious time particularly if you are experiencing pelvic girdle pain, pelvic floor symptoms or early signs of a diastasis recti abdominis (DRA). These symptoms can present as early as your first trimester and last throughout your pregnancy.
Early intervention with an antenatal physiotherapy specialist can significantly improve your symptoms and keep you healthy and active throughout your pregnancy.
We offer a specialised physiotherapy service for women experiencing pelvic girdle pain, pelvic floor symptoms or early signs of a diastasis recti abdominus (DRA).
We will discuss your symptoms in depth, perform a thorough assessment and provide an individualised treatment programme to help improve your symptoms. The conditions we commonly treat include:
- Pelvic girdle pain (PGP)
- Pubic symphysis pain (SPD)
- Sacroiliac joint or coccyx pain
- Lower back and hip pain
- Diastasis recti abdominus (DRA)
- Pelvic floor muscle weakness
- Urinary leakage incontinence
- Pelvic organ prolapse or pelvic pressure
- Pelvic pain or vaginal pain
Pregnancy Health Coaching
We offer a bespoke pregnancy wellness programme to help prevent early signs of pelvic girdle pain, pelvic floor symptoms or diastasis recti abdominis (DRA).
We provide 1:1 physiotherapy-led Pilates to keep you strong and flexible throughout your pregnancy.
“I have been seeing Kathryn Levy, Physiotherapist, for my antenatal pelvic girdle pain. She has been fantastic helping find exactly where the problem is, advice on exercises as well as tissue release. Her input has certainly helped me through this pregnancy making it much more comfortable than it could have been and hopefully will help hasten my recovery.
I plan to see her postnatally too as she provided help with my last pregnancy and recovery after a Cesarean. She guided me through the recovery process and helped me return to normal activity in a safe and controlled way. Highly recommended!”
