A prenatal physiotherapy assessment (virtual or in-clinic) is required prior to starting the classes.

The Prenatal Physiotherapy Assessment includes screening for:

  • low back, thoracic or pelvic pain or pubic symphysis pain
  • abdominal and core weakness
  • Diastasis
  • prolapse
  • urinary incontinence
  • pelvic floor muscle hypertonicity and/or weakness
  • breathing assessment
  • cuing for optimal core muscle recruitment
  • posture and body mechanics
  • pre-existing scars (perineal, c-section)
  • also includes aninternal pelvic floor examination

To schedule your prenatal physiotherapy assessment please call 613-291-2956 or book a pelvic health assessment online. Ideally this is booked with Monate but can be done with another therapist at our clinic or another pelvic health physiotherapist and your information can be passed along to integrate the care for maximum benefits of the class.
