Would you like to feel more confident and empowered for the challenge of labour and birth?
Are you interested in learning active skills that you can use in labour and beyond?
Do you want to know more about TENS as a form of pain relief?
As you approach the birth of your baby it’s a time of great anticipation and excitement but also perhaps some trepidation. Even for those who’ve already had a baby, it’s important to revise and learn new skills that may not have been used during a previous labour and birth, or when a vaginal birth is being considered after a previous caesarean delivery.
Physiotherapy can empower you and your support person with experiential and practical education and birthskills that will help to break the stress response and panic cycle that can occur in labour. These include relaxation, touch and massage, movement, breath awareness, positioning for comfort and the use of TENS. They can be used throughout pregnancy, during labour and for the demands of life with your new baby. Physiotherapy can also provide you with advice and exercises for your physical recovery.
What To Expect:
• Education using verbal, visual and written tools with take home material
• An opportunity to practice massage, positioning and other birthskills
• An opportunity to experience TENS and become familiar with its set up and use
