Prenatal/Postnatal Care

Prenatal Postnatal Care | Orchard Health Clinic

Prenatal Treatments aim to restore optimal function in all of the body’s systems as it evolves through the stages of pregnancy.

Postnatal Treatments assist to restore function in all of the body’s systems as the body changes drastically after pregnancy and delivery of your baby.

Treatment for Prenatal/Postnatal includes postural change, pelvic pain, Diastasis Recti, Sciatica, strain from breastfeeding, nausea, water retention, and Tension Headaches.

Why postnatal care matters

The journey of motherhood continues long after childbirth, with many mothers continuing to experience significant changes in their bodies post-labour. As such, postnatal care is essential to help alleviate common postpartum discomforts and allow mothers to heal and regain their strength after the physical toll of childbirth, enhancing their physical well-being and helping them return to their daily activities with ease.

Our postnatal treatment can help new mothers cope with the body changes after childbirth and restore function in all of their body’s systems. Treatment is personalised to each mother’s unique needs, addressing the specific challenges she faces during the postpartum period. The aim is to alleviate postpartum discomforts, encourage faster and more effective recovery, and help new mothers feel more comfortable and mobile as they care for their babies.

Prenatal/Postnatal Care

At Orchard Health Clinic, our therapists specialise in treating the unique physical challenges associated with pregnancy, with personalised exercise programmes designed to strengthen your core and pelvic floor muscles, thus promoting stability and reducing the risk of discomfort during pregnancy.

Additionally, we can assist in addressing outstanding musculoskeletal imbalances that may arise during pregnancy through the use of gentle manipulations to relieve tension, improve circulation, and provide comfort throughout pregnancy. We can also help maintain spinal health and pelvic alignment to alleviate back pain and promote proper posture.

In addition to prenatal care, our therapists at Orchard Health Clinic can help you regain core strength and enhance overall physical well-being after childbirth. Treatments aim to support your body’s natural healing mechanisms, addressing outstanding musculoskeletal imbalances and postpartum discomfort.

Treatments may include gentle manipulations to help with issues like postpartum back pain, pelvic girdle pain, and overall well-being or chiropractic adjustments to restore spinal alignment and pelvic balance following childbirth. Through our safe and effective postnatal treatments, new mothers can experience a smoother transition into motherhood post-labour.

FAQ about Prenatal & Postnatal care

When should I start prenatal or postnatal care?

Expecting mothers should ideally start prenatal care as soon as they discover they are pregnant or as early in their pregnancy as possible. Early prenatal care is essential for:

  • Identifying and addressing any preexisting conditions or lifestyle factors that could affect the pregnancy;
  • Manage and reduce the risk of pregnancy complications, ensuring smooth childbirth;
  • Providing guidance on a healthy lifestyle and nutrition for pregnant mothers.

Overall, early and consistent prenatal care helps promote a healthy pregnancy and increase the likelihood of a positive outcome for both mother and baby.

After childbirth, it is ideal for mothers to start postpartum care as soon as possible and continue with the programme in the weeks and months following delivery. This period is crucial for new mothers, and an experienced healthcare professional can ensure a healthy recovery for the mother and address any physical changes that occur after giving birth.

What treatment can I expect as part of my prenatal and postnatal care?

At Orchard Health Clinic, our treatment for prenatal and postnatal includes postural change, pelvic pain, Diastasis Recti, Sciatica, strain from breastfeeding, nausea, water retention, and Tension Headaches.

How long do I have to commit to the programme?

The specific timing and frequency of your prenatal or postnatal care visits may vary depending on individual circumstances, the type of delivery (vaginal or caesarean), and any complications that may have arisen during pregnancy or childbirth. New mothers are advised to communicate openly with our healthcare professionals and seek care promptly if they experience any concerns or complications.
