Do you have pain in your back, buttock or hip? What exercise is safe during and after pregnancy?
PREGNANCY & POSTNATAL CARE
Pregnancy is an amazing time of life for any mum-to-be. There’s something primal and magical about the promise of new life and all the excitement it brings.
Preparing your body for pregnancy and being a mother is very important - the stronger and healthier you are, the easier it is going to be for both you and your baby.
Sometimes pregnancy can cause painful musculoskeletal symptoms.
Changes in weight distribution, load and hormones can result in discomfort and fatigue. At Grow Physiotherapy we can assist you to manage these changes through individual assessment and treatment.

Once your bundle of joy has arrived we understand that your life has changed.
You are busy, tired and adjusting to the challenges of looking after another little human. Managing the demands of feeding and settling often means that you put your needs last and forget to look after your own health and recovery.
