Pregnancy + Postnatal

Experience a fresh, innovative holistic Physiotherapy approach at Energy + Motion supporting women through preconception, pregnancy, the postnatal phase and beyond.

We use one hour initial appointments so we can thoroughly assess, find the cause of your issues, provide treatment, and teach self-management methods. You leave knowing effective tips and tricks to continue treatment between sessions.

Our centre is baby friendly. We support meeting baby’s needs and breastfeeding and feeding on demand and changing as needed. We understand that babies need to be close and are welcome to attend appointments with you. To maintain the focus on you and your needs, sometimes having a second pair of hands is handy during appointments. We also understand this isn’t always possible. Either way, we run with what you need, as you need.

We also offer emergency appointments as needed, especially for issues like mastitis that benefit from urgent assessment and treatment.

Our main concern is you, your health, your wellbeing.

Pain in pregnancy and after birth is common but NOT NORMAL. Pregnancy, birth or postnatal issues can significantly impact you and your relationships, your wellbeing.

Help is available. Seeking Physiotherapy assessment and advice at Energy + Motion can change the course of your pregnancy, birth and postnatal recovery.

With extensive experience and expertise we are able to offer a range of integrated treatment options at Energy + Motion including hands on therapies, active rehabilitation and exercise prescription, Reformer Pilates programmes, blended Pilates and Yoga classes, acupuncture and dry-needling, specific women’s health and continence rehabilitation, pregnancy and postnatal care, and birth preparation.

We can also measure and fit for a variety of braces and pelvic support belts, Tubigrip, SRC medical grade pregnancy and postnatal support garments. We hire and sell both Obstetric and Pain Management TENS machines and provide individual instruction for use so you can maximise benefits.
Our unique top to toe integrative physiotherapy approach is effective and identifies the key issues and causes. You leave understanding how to manage your issue and supporting recovery.

We find investing time at your initial appointment is both cost and time efficient, creating better results in a shorter space of time.

We operate a baby friendly and breastfeeding and child friendly centre. We structure appointments so you get the treatment you need when you baby or children need to be with you.
