We talk so much about how to prepare for birth, but we want to focus the conversation on how to prepare for postpartum as well, starting with pelvic health!
And although we are maternity physicians, pelvic physiotherapy is not our area of expertise so we chatted with Melissa Dessaulles, pelvic physiotherapist and founder of Mommy Berries Health.
Melissa shares her story of how she got into pelvic physiotherapy and her top tips on recovering postpartum.
Melissa talks about the importance of rest and swelling management but also how that alone is not enough. Connect with a pelvic physiotherapist when you feel ready to gradually work back towards activity and establish your rhythm postpartum.
If you want more information about caring for your body postpartum check out our recent blog and podcast with Dr. Kelsey Mills where she talks about the importance of vulvo-vaginal health postpartum.
