Home / What We Do / Obstetrics


Obstetrics is the name for the medical speciality of looking after women who are pregnant and shortly after giving birth. Ante-natal is the period before birth and Post-natal the period after giving birth. As well as the Doctors and Midwives, Physiotherapists also play an important role in obstetrics.


Many women suffer with aches and pains during pregnancy, however, in some cases this is above the normal adaptation to changes in the body. Physios can assist you with this change and look at techniques and exercises which can ease the symptoms and allow you to be well prepared for progressing through pregnancy, labour and beyond.


At Pure Physiotherapy we have a number of Physiotherapists who have undertaken additional training in obstetrics, particularly MSK conditions during pregnancy, so are well placed to be able to help.
