As a new mum, it’s hard to know what exactly you’re supposed to do. Adjusting to having a new addition to your family, figuring out new routines, having plenty of appointments and discussions around checking in with bub, vaccinations, and attending mother’s group can be tough enough.
Often, taking care of your little one can be all time-consuming, that we often forget that YOU as a mum have gone through a whole life-changing, body-changing experience over that nine-month pregnancy and birthing journey, and that journey continues after you give birth!
Having a check-in for YOU to make sure that YOU’RE healthy and well is just as important for this exact reason. This is where a postnatal check-in with your Women’s Health Physiotherapist is vital to make sure that you’re on the right track.
Generally speaking, a postnatal check happens at the 6-week mark, however, this might happen a little bit earlier for some women, and a little bit later for other women; it really depends on how you feel!
