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.

Initial Assessment Information

FitRight Initial Assessments are conducted at FitRight HQ in Applecross.

Which appointment type should I book?

If you are experiencing bladder, bowel or sexual pain issues please book the 60 minute FitRight Initial Assessment. If you are not experiencing any bladder, bowel or sexual pain symptoms please book the 45 minute screening Initial Assessment. If you are unsure which appointment type you should book please contact us at hq@fitright.physio.

What about if I am pregnant?

If you are pregnant you can attend either an individual assessment or 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 assessment).

Is there any thing I should bring to my appointment?

Please attend your Initial Assessment with a comfortably full bladder in case an ultrasound assessment is required. Please bring your private health fund card as all Initial Assessment appointments are rebatable on private health insurance (code 500 – Initial Physiotherapy Consultation).

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.

Can’t make it to FitRight HQ? Find a Physiotherapist close to you

Below you will find a list of physiotherapists around Perth and Mandurah that are recommended by FitRight. You will need to ask to be booked in for a ‘FitRight Assessment’ with a physiotherapist who specialises in Women’s Health.

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.

Payment and bookings for the clinics listed below are completely separate to FitRight and appointment costs will vary.

Your assessment results will be sent directly to FitRight (please keep in mind this can take a few days).
