One of the main factors that differentiates FitRight from other exercise options is that it is essential for all participants to have an initial assessment with a physiotherapist who specialises in Women’s Health.

Unlike other pregnancy and postnatal assessments, these appointments screen for bladder, bowel and musculoskeletal issues, and assess that you are correctly activating your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. This enables the class to be adjusted to suit your personal core muscle capabilities and ensures that you aren’t doing anything that could cause or worsen common pregnancy, postnatal and women’s health related issues such as incontinence, prolapse and abdominal muscle separation.

These assessments are conducted at FitRight HQ – Unit 2/40 Ardross St, Applecross WA 6153.

If you are pregnant:

You have the option to do your assessment as either:

  • Part of a small group workshop in PregEd which also includes 2 hours of education (please note that if this screening assessment finds any specific issues then you will be encouraged to follow up with an individual physiotherapy session)
  • A one-on-one individual assessment with a physiotherapist who can assess your pelvic floor muscles

If you are postnatal or attending an Empower or Impact class:

You will need to do your assessment as one-on-one individual initial assessment (30-60 minutes) with a physiotherapist who can assess your pelvic floor muscles.

Individual Initial Assessments

Initial FitRight Assessments are conducted at FitRight HQ in Applecross.

If you unable to find a suitable appointment at FitRight HQ, below you will find a list of physiotherapists around Perth and Mandurah that are recommended by FitRight. When booking an initial assessment outside of FitRight HQ you will need to ask to be booked in with a physiotherapist who specialises in Women’s Health for a ‘FitRight Assessment’. If your Physiotherapist is not on this list, or if they are in the public health sector, please contact us so that we can ensure that the assessment will be adequate. We will likely need you to contact the Physiotherapist (for privacy reasons) and and ask them to complete an assessment form or send a copy of your clinical notes.

Please attend your initial assessment with a comfortably full bladder in case an ultrasound assessment is required.

Initial Assessments are rebatable on private health insurance (code 500 for Initial Physiotherapy). Payment and bookings for clinics outside of FitRight HQ are completely separate to FitRight and appointment costs will vary between practices and Physiotherapists.

Your assessment results will be sent directly to FitRight (please keep in mind this can take a few days if you attend a clinic other than FitRight HQ).

For further information please read our blog post about initial assessments to learn about:

  • Why this assessment is different to any appointments you will have with doctors and nurses during and after your pregnancy.
  • What the difference is between a non-invasive real time ultrasound assessment, and a vaginal examination of the pelvic floor muscles, and when we would recommend the latter.
