Krstya, from Cairn Physiotherapy, joins us to discuss the benefits of Pelvic Physiotherapy during pregnancy!
We discuss the benefits of pelvic physio when it comes to training your pelvic floor for delivery. Krysta also reviews many of the other topics she talks about with clients including setting up your environment, learning different positions to labour and push in, and how to train for those positions.
We also discuss pelvic dysfunction and what this can look like in pregnancy, including constipation, urinary leakage and painful sex, and the role pelvic physio has in helping these conditions.
