After Your Delivery

You may expect to be in hospital for 4 nights following an uncomplicated delivery and 5 nights following a caesarean section.

Our team of caring and experienced maternity staff pride themselves in offering you and your partner comprehensive care, parenting education and support following the birth of your baby.

Personalised information on feeding, parenting skills, taking baby home from hospital, sleep and settling can be provided. Links with available community resources and services can also be provided as required.

Our Women’s Health Physiotherapists have post graduate qualifications in Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation.

After your delivery, whether you have a C-section or vaginal delivery, we will offer you one-on-one post-natal physiotherapy consultations. This one-on-one service provides you with an opportunity to discuss any personal concerns and enables our physiotherapist to tailor the treatment to your specific needs.

Our physiotherapists are also available for out-patient services at our Waverley Private Consulting Suites. These sessions are suitable for women of any age with pelvic floor related issues. These include:

  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment pre and post pregnancy
  • Exercise prescription for pregnancy and the post-natal period
  • Pregnancy related musculoskeletal pain including pelvic pain, back pain and wrist pain
  • Urinary incontinence and/or urinary urgency
  • Bowel incontinence and/or urgency
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain and painful intercourse

To book an out-patient services consultation please contact their Performance Plus offices on 9815 2555.

Our Infant Feeding and Support Centre offers women with babies up to the age of 12 weeks assistance and guidance from our International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in a small group setting.
