Post Natal Hydrotherapy

Aqua therapy is a form of hydrotherapy that uses warm water to provide both support and resistance. It is a safe and effective way for postnatal women to exercise and improve their physical and mental health. Under the guidance of a physiotherapist, you can start exercising slowly, at your individual level and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts as you get stronger. Aqua therapy can help to speed up the recovery process after a C-section. The water can help to reduce pain and inflammation, and the buoyancy of the water can help to support the abdomen.

Aqua therapy is a low-impact activity that can help to improve cardiovascular health by exercising your heart and lungs. The warmth and buoyancy of the water can reduce pain and inflammation, which can be especially beneficially for women experiencing postpartum pain. You can work on strengthening specific muscle groups for example, your pelvic floor muscles which can be weakened following childbirth improving their function of supporting your bladder, uterus, and rectum, and your abdominal muscles, which can help to improve your posture and reduce back pain.

Exercise can help you burn calories and lose weight, especially when combined with a healthy diet which can boost your self-esteem. Exercise can also help to improve your mood, reduce stress, and improve the quality of your sleep, particularly beneficial for women experiencing any level of post-partum depression, a common mood disorder affecting women after childbirth.
