FitRight Educational Videos

Do you know the unfortunate statistics if you've had a baby? 

 

You're very likely to experience one or more of the following problems, either straight away or down the track:

 

Bladder leakage

Bowel leakage

Vaginal Prolapse

Abdominal Muscle Separation

Caesarean Scar Pain

Vaginal Pain

Muscle or Joint Pain

 

However, these things could potentially be avoided or managed if all women got the right advice about their post-baby rehabilitation in the first 6 weeks after delivery. 

 

This series of educational videos, created and spoken by Women's Health & Continence Physiotherapist Taryn Watson, goes through the essential information that all women should know about how to safely strengthen and heal in the early weeks after giving birth.

 

You have the option to purchase the main 20 minute video only, called 'Postnatal Rehabilitation - The First Six Weeks' or you can add on the shorter Vaginal Birth Specific, Caesarean Birth Specific, Return To General Exercise, or Physiotherapy for Newborn Babies videos as well.

 

You can save money by purchasing one of our packages with either Vaginal Birth information, Caesarean Birth information, or both.
