We spend months training for a big race or an important presentation, but many women find themselves "winging it" when it comes to pregnancy and childbirth. Mamas and Misses Physical Therapy wants to offer you pelvic floor physical therapy that will make your pregnancy and birth full of the excitement that this season of your life deserves. Common goals that we help clients achieve include, but are not limited to the following:
-How to exercise safely during pregnancy

-Safe exercises to do while on bedrest
-Alleviating pain from pubic symphysis dysfunction

Life with a newborn is full of snuggles, excitement and let’s be honest...tears. Some are tears of joy, but some are tears of frustration and sadness. Loved ones warn us that things will change, but what about painful sex, prolapse, diastasis recti abdominis, and bowel and bladder incontinence? Why doesn't anyone talk about these things? Mamas and Misses Physical Therapy takes a holistic approach to healing postpartum and addresses the following postpartum concerns:
-Urinary and fecal incontinence
-Immobility from injury during labor and delivery
-Pain from pubic symphysis diastasis
-Tailbone pain related to coccyx injury
-Back and neck pain related to breastfeeding
-Pelvic organ prolapse
-Scar immobility from cesarean section delivery
-Home modifications for mom and baby
-How to safely return to exercise
Scheduling your Physical Therapy Evaluation
Where will my appointment be?
All therapy is done in the comfort of your own home. Dr. Nicole has found that in-home visits are much more convenient for busy moms.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in. The first visit often requires lots of moving around and learning new exercises.
Do you accept payment from insurance?
Dr. Nicole has found that accepting insurance limits her ability to treat you holistically and often ends up costing patients more than cash-based services. You can pay with cash, check or HSA cards prior to or at the end of your appointment.
How long will my appointment be?
Expect the first visit to be about 75 minutes. Future follow-up appointments are typically 60 minutes.
Do I have to have an internal pelvic floor exam?
While Dr. Nicole is trained to do internal pelvic floor exams, they are NEVER a required part of your treatment plan.
What if I had my baby 10 years ago?
Postpartum is forever! Whether you had your baby 10 weeks ago or 10 years ago, pelvic floor physical therapy can be helpful to become comfortable and confident in your postpartum body.
