I required reconstructive surgery after a difficult pregnancy that severely damaged my pelvic floor. The care that I received from the pelvic health physiotherapist that I saw helped to prepare me mentally and physically for surgery, and assisted tremendously with my recovery. The combined approach of strength training exercises and pelvic floor treatments helped me to regain strength and confidence, and enabled me to return my normal life. As a result of my experience, I believe that pelvic health physiotherapy should be an essential part of every woman’s post-partum recovery. She was a wonderful support and I am grateful to have had her assistance, which greatly assisted me throughout.
