Bend + Mend is offering a comprehensive Pregnancy and Post-Natal Women’s Health Package which includes all the help you need to take care of yourself, the mother, through pregnancy and following birth.
The focus for women during pregnancy and childbirth is, of course, centred on their beautiful new baby. The mother’s health, once they are home, is often just thought to follow a slow recovery or to accept the changes to their body. Here at Bend + Mend, we want to help you recover quickly and avoid the long-term health issues commonly seen in new mothers.
Did you know that one in three women who ever had a baby wet themselves? In fact, women who have even had just one baby are three times more likely to wet themselves compared to those who have not had a baby. And the more babies you have, the more likely leaking will occur! To make matters worse, this leaking won’t just stop if you ignore it.
It is now widely known that problems such as pelvic floor weakness and abdominal separation can be effectively treated if treatment is started early after birth.
How is this package different to other post-natal checks?
Unfortunately, post-natal examinations will typically consist of only some basic questions, a quick assessment to see if the uterus has returned to its original size, and occasionally a check for abdominal separation. This can leave the mother with many questions regarding what they can do and when to ensure full recovery after birth.
