Greenslopes Obstetrics and Gynaecology has teamed up with expert physiotherapists – such as Sarah Christ and Emma Yang. They are practitioners and work from our rooms to provide physiotherapy services to women during pregnancy and after childbirth.


Antenatal physiotherapy

Physiotherapy during pregnancy, or antenatal physiotherapy, can assist with pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain and lower back pain. Our physiotherapists can also provide expert advice on incontinence and pelvic floor.

If your Greenslopes Obstetrics and Gynaecology doctor believes you would benefit from some antenatal physiotherapy, you will be referred on. You are also welcome to take the initiative and book yourself an appointment with one of our physiotherapists.


Postnatal physiotherapy

Postnatal women are prone to pelvic floor issues and incontinence in later life. When you return to Greenslopes Obstetrics and Gynaecology for your six-week postnatal review with your doctor, we recommend a postnatal physiotherapy review also takes place at that time to check your pelvic floor and recovery from the delivery. Our physiotherapists also offer specialised treatment for bladder and bowel issues, pain, scarring and rectus diastasis.
