Motherhood is hard, but we are here to help
Most women and families accept that pregnancy and post-partum come with minor aches and maybe even a little loss of bladder control. It is true that rare, short lived episodes of these issues are common. But symptoms like these that recur or are persistent can indicate a higher risk for long term consequences that interfere with caring for your baby and returning to work or fitness activities:
- difficulty lifting, carrying, running or nursing
- post-partum depression
- damage to the pelvic floor
- stress urinary incontinence
- bowel difficulties
- pain with intimacy
Issues during pregnancy and the early post-partum years can even increase your risk of future back pain issues and symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse in the perimenopause or menopause years.
At Foothills, we believe women deserve to feel well, function well and understand their bodies well throughout the lifespan. We have special training to care for the whole woman during all phases of life including pregnancy, delivery, motherhood, perimenopause and menopause.
