Maternal Health Care in West Adelaide

At Phyx., our mission is to help all Adelaide mummies and mummies to be, to be fit, strong and healthy throughout their journey from bun in the oven to beyond.

With a growing tummy, changing body shape, hormones and sleeping patterns, many women experience pregnancy related aches and pains.

But did you know that many of these changes that affect your musculoskeletal system in preparation for child birth also remain for 6 to 9 months after birth?

Our physiotherapists have special interest in both pregnancy and postnatal physiotherapy and Pilates. We are here to support you from your first trimester through to your baby’s arrival and your post-natal recovery.

Pregnancy Care

During pregnancy, your body undergoes many changes and we are here to support you through them with Physio treatment, Pilates and advice.

Physiotherapy can provide you with short and long term pain relief, while also working together with you to provide strategies to help you along with the rest of your pregnancy.

Your maternal health physio can also help by guiding you through exercises which are safe to do during pregnancy, helping you feel stronger and reducing your risk of developing other pregnancy-related aches and pains.

Pregnancy Pilates

During pregnancy, participating in some form of exercise such as Pilates has been shown to be very beneficial in both your health and the health of your baby.

Benefits of these classes include;

  • Strengthen your lower back and pelvic muscles
  • Pelvic Floor strengthening and education
  • Relieve back and neck pain with pregnancy safe stretching exercises
  • Prepare your body for childbirth and beyond

Our classes at Phyx. are designed by our physiotherapists who have undergone training in pregnancy care and exercises.

Exercises will be tailored to your gestation to ensure you and your growing baby are safe. Read more information about Pregnancy Pilates here.

We are here to support you from your first trimester through to your baby’s arrival and beyond.

Postnatal Care

Welcome to the wonderful (but challenging!) world of motherhood.

Your body has been through a lot throughout your pregnancy, whether you experienced morning (or all day) sickness, back pain, pubic pain, fatigue, nausea or reflux…

And then of course, the birth.

Now that baby has FINALLY arrived and things are starting to settle (a little!), you might be starting to feel like it’s the right time to start doing something to help your body recover and get stronger.

We are here to support you through your journey into motherhood helping with aches and pains, recovering from birth, breastfeeding support and Pilates.
