Pre and Postnatal Care

Every journey through pregnancy, birth and beyond is unique. Therefore every woman will have different needs. Whilst issues such as back and pelvic pain in pregnancy are common, they're not normal.


Peta is passionate about the pelvis and the pregnant body and has worked for over 15 years specialising in this field. As a mum herself, she understands the physical, emotional and social changes that occur with having a baby.


Physiotherapy can assist with the treatment and management of a number of issues including:


  • Lower back and pelvic girdle pain

  • Sciatic / leg pain

  • Pubic symphysitis / pubic bone pain

  • Rib, thoracic and neck pain

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome and swelling management

  • Preparing your pelvis and body for labour and birth

  • Appropriate exercise for your pregnancy  

The Post Partum period

  • Rectus diastasis (abdominal muscle separation) and recovery of abdominal function

  • Caesarean scar management and wound healing
