The transition into motherhood can present both physical and mental challenges. Pelvic floor issues are common among women, both pre- and post-baby, but are not normal. Some symptoms include pelvic pain, incontinence (leakage), overactive bladder (urgency, frequency), pelvic organ prolapse, and diastasis recti (separation of the abdominals). Many women also struggle adapting to their new role and associated body changes post-partum. Stride’s physiotherapy, massage therapy, and psychology services can help address the whole self during and after pregnancy to allow you to accomplish your daily activities and active lifestyle.
