Women's Health Physiotherapy

Women's Health Physiotherapy

Our physiotherapist Lucy has completed further studies in Women’s Pelvic Health, and can help you with a range of your women’s health needs. Some common things we see include pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions, abdominal separation, urinary/faecal incontinence, overactive bladder, pregnancy related pain, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse.


How can a Women’s Health Physiotherapist help?

  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment to diagnose pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions

  • Pelvic floor muscle training 

    • Most effective first point of treatment for stage l-ll uterine, bladder and rectal prolapses

    • Can be an effective treatment for urinary/faecal incontinence, depending on the type of incontinence

  • Bladder/bowel assessments and bladder/bowel diaries 

  • Bladder/bowel training programmes

  • Birth preparation

  • Postnatal checks – including return to running/sport

  • Prenatal/postnatal exercise classes

  • Musculoskeletal pain during pregnancy

  • Pelvic pain


What your appointment may look like?

Prior to your appointment you will receive a pelvic floor questionnaire to complete. This will assist Lucy in your assessments, treatment plan and reassessment. As Women’s Health appointments are booked for many reasons, each appointment will differ and be tailored to you and your goals. First and foremost, Lucy’s priority is that you feel comfortable and safe. She will explain your assessment and treatment options that will be most beneficial to you, and what you are comfortable to consent to. Assessments may include an internal vaginal examination, external vaginal examination, basic pelvic floor examination, abdominal examination, pelvic girdle and lumbar assessment.


Prenatal/Postnatal Classes:

Lucy facilitates prenatal and postnatal classes in our exercise studio, using the Pilates reformer, mat Pilates and gym based exercises.


It can be confusing during pregnancy what exercises are safe to do and at what intensity. Prenatal classes are great for strengthening your pelvic floor to support an easier labour, prevent tearing or need for medical intervention, lower risk for gestational diabetes while also maintaining the health and wellbeing of you and bub.


We recommend a pelvic floor postnatal check-up from 6-8 weeks after birth. Lucy will assess for any postnatal complications such as pelvic floor dysfunctions, diastasis recti (abdominal separation) or incontinence. Postnatal exercise classes are available to get you back into your regular exercise safely.

Prenatal/Postnatal Class Fees: $44
