Prenatal & Postpartum Physical Therapy

What’s this?

If you’re a mom, you know that pregnancy takes a toll on your body. We know there is very little information and awareness about the importance of physical therapy for moms, and we’re ready to help.

Most women and even their medical doctors aren’t aware that physical therapy before, during, and after pregnancy can help a mother’s body recover significantly more quickly, and can even help reduce or eliminate scars. Moms are now becoming their own advocates in finding the right Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) who can help.

We want to help you make time to care for yourself, so you can care for your family!

Who can benefit from Prenatal or Postpartum PT?

  • Any mom who wants to prepare for future pregnancies, or get fit for daily life and caring for your active little ones
  • Moms who want to alleviate diastasis recti (separation of the tummy muscles), improve posture, strengthen their core, and get rid of “mommy tummy”
  • Women with scars from a C-section, or a tear or episiotomy from childbirth
  • Women with pregnancy-related back pain. Undergoing PT while pregnant as well as after giving birth can help you bounce back faster
  • Moms who have been told they need to strengthen their pelvic floor

What should I expect?

Our Doctors of Physical Therapy spend plenty of one-on-one time getting to know you. You’ll get one hour of skilled care dedicated just to you. Even if you haven’t gotten to PT yet and your baby is 1, 2, or 3 years old, it’s not too late for one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy to help. New Jersey is a Direct Access state, so you don’t need a referral to be evaluated — just come on in! Your needs and goals are our top priority.

What’s the first step?
