B2B: Antenatal & Postnatal Program

Pregnancy is an especially exciting time in your life filled with happiness, change and sometimes a few aches and pains too. At ZEST Physio Pilates Health we have a special interest in maternal health services, managing every aspect of your health and fitness throughout your pregnancy and into the postnatal period.

Our B2B program aims to:

-guide you every step of the way with safe and effective exercise during pregnancy

-safely and effectively return you to sport/exercise after delivery

-prevent and/or attend to commonly encountered issues along the way such as pelvic floor problems, abdominal muscle separation, back and pelvic pain

-educate you on injury prevention and provide useful suggestions with respects to breastfeeding postures, pram/car-seat set up, and settling techniques

-provide emotional support and a network of health professionals to assist in your pregnancy and recovery

-provide support and exercise advice during/after challenging events such as miscarriage to enable functional recovery

-introduce you into a group of local mums who are likely facing similar challenges and triumphs along the way!

Bump2Baby is our PRENATAL program. Our Physiotherapists will provide you with valuable education and guidelines around topics like posture, safe exercise modifications and injury prevention. We will guide you towards best management of pelvic floor and abdominal muscle separation to prevent issues arising along the way. Our program will support and prepare you and your body for the challenges that lie ahead whilst enabling you to have confidence in the advice you are receiving from highly educated health professionals.

Baby2Beyond is our POSTNATAL program. We have a holistic approach to your care from a few weeks after delivery until you have returned back to exercise and life. The ideal time for a postnatal assessment is approximately one month after delivery. This is important to assess your pelvic floor function, abdominal muscles, joint discomfort and general function to ensure you are on the right track to recovery. Our Physiotherapists are all experienced in managing back pain, pelvic issues including ‘pelvic instability’, wrist problems such as Dequerveins and carpal tunnel; and other common issues such as abdominal separation. We will teach you how to use your pelvic floor again and provide with advice and treatment of abdominal separation. Click on Baby2Beyond button below to learn more of this program.
