When should I come?

Around 6 weeks is ideal. If you are experienced a significant birth trauma (3rd + degree tears, instrument deliveries, issues with bladder control and emptying, difficulty with post Cesarean birth pain), you may benefit from attending as early as 2-4 weeks postpartum.

Please Note: if you are attending physiotherapy between 0-6 weeks postpartum, assessment and treatment techniques are external only, unless specified by your doctor/ midwife. Internal evaluations may be completed at 6 weeks as per your discharge appointment with your doctor/midwife.

All virtual & in-clinic physiotherapy sessions are provided by a registered physiotherapist, with courses specifically in Female Pelvic Health Physiotherapy. The sessions are 1:1 and there is a private, closed-door treatment room. Please note virtual appointment are for residents of Manitoba only, and perineal evaluations will not be completed virtually.
