All too often, physiotherapists who specialize in women’s health are seeing mothers after their birthing experiences in need of recovery. Whether it be from improper birthing positions or pelvic floor instability, mothers can’t deny that the physical body undergoes tremendous changes during the birthing process. Blissfully unaware in the first stages of postpartum healing, pelvic pain and instability should not be neglected. Join our resident physiotherapist Heidi Mason for this Master Class on the anatomical perspective on how to labour and deliver with awareness of the physical body.
