LABOR AND DELIVERY PREPARATION
Birth can be the most memorable day of a woman’s life and we want it be for the happiest of reasons. At Shanthi Priya our physical therapist are committed to helping you achieve a healthy labour process.
-During pregnancy, your body undergoes various physiological and musculoskeletal changes. Your ligaments become more pliable, blood volume increases and even your posture changes. This can be associated with pain, gestational diabetes, and other niggling musculoskeletal issues such as back pain,pelvic pain including leaking urine, feeling of pressure or heaviness in vagina.
Just as a sports person trains many months for the event or like a student preparing his exams, pregnancy is the period for you as a mother to prepare the delivery occasion.
We aim to facilitate a more flexible birth canal for the baby to pass through, with minimal resistance to the baby and therefore less soft tissue and joint damage to you.
However, this should be achieved only by a proper and safer prenatal exercise program. This is not the time for experimenting. You need an expert to assist you. At Shanthi Priya, our well trained physiotherapists help look after your body during pregnancy, and to recover after childbirth by prescribing a safe and healthy prenatal program.
This includes education and understanding of the body changes during pregnancy, conditioning exercises, strengthening, soft tissue release, breathing techniques, strengthening the perineal muscles to enable to push during labour occasion and appropriate breathing exercises during the whole period of pregnancy.
We also manage to improve the cardiovascular fitness , the psychological well-being, amend the posture, reduce intensity of back pain, and manage gestational diabetes eventually to optimize health across the lifespan of two generations.
