What is Postpartum Recovery?
Postpartum recovery is the process of restoring your body to its pre-pregnancy state after childbirth. It typically involves several stages, including wound healing, postpartum exercise, and pelvic floor rehabilitation. A physical therapist can help you navigate each of these stages by providing you with the necessary guidance and support to optimize your recovery.
Benefits of Physical Therapy for Postpartum Recovery
Physical therapy is a safe and effective way to support you. Some of the benefits of physical therapy include:
- Improved healing: Assess and manage any symptoms or conditions that occur during childbirth to promote faster healing.
- Pain relief: Physical therapy can help alleviate postpartum pain, including back pain, pelvic pain, and joint pain.
- Restored mobility: Restore your mobility and flexibility, allowing you to perform daily tasks with greater ease.
- Improved bladder and bowel function: Strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, which are often weakened during childbirth, to improve bladder and bowel function.
Postpartum exercise is essential. Regular exercise can help you regain your strength, energy, and physical function. However, it is crucial to start slowly and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your exercise routine.
A physical therapist can help you create a customized exercise plan that is safe and effective for your postpartum body. They can also help you identify any warning signs or red flags that indicate you are pushing yourself too hard or putting yourself at risk of injury.
Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
Pelvic floor rehabilitation is another critical aspect of postpartum recovery. The pelvic floor muscles are responsible for supporting your bladder, bowel, and reproductive organs. These muscles can become weakened or damaged during pregnancy and childbirth, leading to problems such as incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
A physical therapist can help you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles through targeted exercises, biofeedback, and other techniques. Pelvic floor rehabilitation can improve bladder and bowel function, reduce the risk of incontinence and prolapse, and enhance sexual function.
Mental Health and Postpartum Recovery
Physical therapy can help improve your mental health as well as your physical health. The physical changes that occur during pregnancy and childbirth can often lead to mental health issues such as postpartum depression and anxiety. These conditions can impact your ability to care for your baby, your relationships with loved ones, and your overall quality of life.
Choosing a Physical Therapist for Postpartum Recovery
When choosing a physical therapist, it is essential to find someone who has experience working with postpartum women. Look for a physical therapist who specializes in women’s health or pelvic floor rehabilitation. You may also want to ask for referrals from your obstetrician, midwife, or other healthcare providers.
During your first appointment with a physical therapist, they will likely perform a comprehensive evaluation to assess your overall physical function and identify any areas of weakness or injury. Based on this evaluation, they will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your individual needs and goals.
The Importance of Self-Care During Postpartum Recovery
This is a challenging time for new moms, both physically and emotionally. It is essential to prioritize self-care during this time to help you recover and adjust to your new role as a parent. Self-care can take many different forms, from getting enough sleep and staying hydrated to taking breaks when you need them and seeking support from loved ones.
Find the care you deserve.
Postpartum recovery is a critical aspect of the postpartum period, and physical therapy can play a vital role in optimizing your recovery. A physical therapist can help you navigate each stage of the recovery process, from wound healing to postpartum exercise to pelvic floor rehabilitation. By working with a physical therapist, you can achieve your postpartum recovery goals and regain your physical function, mobility, and overall well-being.

Truly, I cannot express how wonderful Reborn is and how much they have helped me. I’ve never had a health professional care about my concerns and issues, and then address them like Reborn has. It’s not a “let’s just bandaid over the issue”, but truly figuring out why symptoms are occurring and using a whole body approach to fix and heal. They stay with you every step of the way and educate and encourage you. It’s been a life changing experience for me and I’m so grateful Betty had the passion to create her business to help women. Words cannot fully encompass how incredible the “vagina magicians” are until you experience it for yourself
Dr. Betty and her staff are wonderful! Dr. Betty was able to clear up my issues in 5 visits. She informed me each visit and gave me tools to use outside of our visits. She is consent based and such a wonderful provider. She is truly a vagina magician!
