Why do I need to see a physiotherapist and a chiropractor for this program?Pregnancy and Postnatal care is complex and highly individualized. Our pelvic floor physiotherapist will educate/restore your core and perineal musculature to their optimal function. Our perinatal chiropractor will focus on postural strengthening, and balancing the spine/pelvis through active release techniques/gentle mobilizations. Our goals are to prepare your whole body for a healthy, delivery, and to smoothly return you to optimal functioning and exercise postpartum.

Why do I need to participate in all 10 sessions in the pregnancy program or the 11 sessions in the postnatal program?
Each session of both the Pregnancy and Postpartum program has been developed with an educational component in mind, addressing the main pregnancy and postpartum related topics the co-founders have encountered in practice. After your initial evaluation, and addressing your goals, the program is meant to highlight key areas that can enhance your functioning during pregnancy, and work with your body to heal, recover and return to pre-pregnancy status. We want you to be strong, confident and empowered to give birth, and re-build this feeling with your new self, postpartum.
What to expect on the first session of the program?
You will have two assessments by our program specialists the first week of the program. The first appointment will be conducted by our pelvic floor physiotherapist and the second appointment will be conducted by our perinatal chiropractor. Both therapists will conduct a comprehensive medical history and detailed physical assessment. With your consent, an external and/or internal pelvic floor examination will be performed by our program’s pelvic floor physiotherapist to determine the state of your core and pelvic floor muscles. Our chiropractor will examine your posture, alignment, and strength.
