Pregnancy is an amazing and life-changing experience, but it can take a toll on your body as it transforms to accommodate your growing baby. Your body undergoes dramatic changes in a fairly short period of time, and as the baby grows inside you, your hormones, posture and balance change. With time, as the baby gets heavier, the pressure inside your abdomen and down onto your pelvic floor muscles increases. This pressure means your pelvic floor muscles need to stay strong to support the weight of the baby from above and to prevent leakage of urine. The human body is an amazing thing. It’s constantly changing and growing, and that affects every part of us – including our muscles, joints and ligaments. It’s common to experience a variety of musculoskeletal symptoms as we go through these changes, but there are ways to help ease the discomfort.
There are a number of conditions that pregnant women may experience during their pregnancy. These include:
Every pregnancy is special and unique, so our physiotherapists will tailor a program just for you. Depending on your assessment, your individualized treatment could involve pelvic floor and core muscle strengthening, joint mobilizations, a flexibility and strength maintaining exercise regimen, education, and advice.
After giving birth (vaginally or by C-section), you may notice that your pelvic floor muscles are weaker than they used to be. These muscles are essential for maintaining bladder and bowel control, pelvic stability, and sexual function, and they can be adversely affected by pregnancy and childbirth. To prevent long-term problems, it’s important to start pelvic floor rehabilitation as soon as possible. You’ll find yourself holding your baby in sustained positions and doing a lot of lifting after giving birth, which can lead to aches and pains. Pelvic floor rehab can help you manage these symptoms and improve your quality of life.
There are many problems that can occur after giving birth. Some of the more common problems that new mothers experience include:

I have been visiting the clinic for the past two years and my experience has been great. Dr. Kant is very knowledgeable and he treats his patients with full dedication and patience. I underwent treatment for my neck and back pain and I got relief after just a few sessions of dry needling. So, I would recommend everyone to visit KALP HEALTH CARE for any kind of physiotherapy treatment.
At the age of 53, a back problem is scary when a doctor tells you that you need 10 days of bed rest or surgery! I went to Kalp expecting the usual steps of physiotherapy, but I couldn't even stand up straight or get out of bed without shooting pain. This is an example of not judging a book by its cover. Dr. Kant is a simple man but a magician when it comes to his treatment. He is passionate and positive about his treatment and knows the human body like the back of his hand. A dedicated team with Dr. Monika and Dr. Rakesh got me on my feet in just 3 days. This is the best treatment I could have asked for!
Dr. Kant and his clinic are excellent in treating muscular and spinal issues - it's very clean and hygienic. Dr. Kant has great understanding and knowledge, quickly reaching to the root of what's wrong and able to provide Relief within a few sessions. I found a solution to my spine problem after seeking treatment from Dr. Kant - I had tried all kinds of treatments before but hadn't been able to find any relief.

Pregnant or postpartum women should do at least 150 minutes (for example, 30 minutes a day, five days a week) of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity per week, such as brisk walking, during and after their pregnancy. It is best to spread this activity throughout the week.
Any exercise that may cause even mild abdominal trauma, including activities that include jarring motions or rapid changes in direction. Activities that require extensive jumping, hopping, skipping, or bouncing. Deep knee bends, full sit-ups, double leg raises and straight-leg toe touches. Bouncing while stretching.
Numerous studies have found that exercise during pregnancy, whether acute or chronic, is not harmful to the fetus and may benefit development in utero and after birth.
If you’re in good health and your pregnancy is uncomplicated, the answer is yes. Running while pregnant is considered to be generally safe for you and your baby. Some women, however, have medical conditions or pregnancy complications that mean they should not exercise at all.
Recent studies have suggested that the fetus moves around more in response to maternal stress and also when the mother is happy. More active fetuses also seem to achieve higher scores on a brain maturation test and have better control of body movements after birth.
