Can You Go To Pelvic Floor PT While Pregnant?

Pregnancy and Postpartum Care for Everyone

Yes, you can go to pelvic floor physical therapy (PT) while pregnant. In fact, it's often recommended for various reasons. Pelvic floor PT during pregnancy can help manage or prevent issues like incontinence, pelvic pain, and prepare the pelvic floor muscles for childbirth. It can also aid in recovery after delivery.

Pelvic floor PT typically involves exercises to strengthen or relax the pelvic floor muscles, education on proper pelvic alignment, and techniques to manage pain. It's important to work with a physical therapist who is trained and experienced in prenatal care to ensure that the therapy is safe and effective for your specific needs during pregnancy.

Always consult with your healthcare provider before starting any new treatment during pregnancy to make sure it's appropriate for your personal health situation.
