Postnatal Care for EVERY Mum

Whether you have had a vaginal birth or a caesarean (C-section birth), The Natal Check is a must for any mum. Being pregnant for 9 months and then giving birth, (regardless of how you gave birth), can take a huge toil on your body, as well as your postnatal mental health. 

The Natal check has been specifically devised by a team of expert Women’s Health Physiotherapists (Sarah Norris and Hannah Poulton from Everything Natal). Together we have over 40 years’ experience in Physiotherapy and postnatal care. We believe EVERY mum should have the right to excellent postnatal care and attention. All too often, issues go unchecked or noticed after giving birth and mums think “this is what I have to put up with now.” We believe this is NOT the case. With the right specialist help and support symptoms can often be rectified.

What is The Natal Check?

The Natal Check is a comprehensive postnatal check & assessment which is essential for your optimal recovery - regardless of how you gave birth. We can provide the check at our clinic in Leicester, or as an online service by one of our specially trained women’s health physios.

  • C-section scar assessment, treatment and advice

  • External and Internal Pelvic floor assessment - for vaginal deliveries AND c-section deliveries (if required).

Postnatal Check FAQ's

Why Should I have the Full Natal Check?

This postnatal check will give you peace of mind that your body is fully healing after giving birth. We have many clients that come to us with issues that have been hampering them since giving birth which are often overlooked. At HLP Therapy we strongly believe that no mother should be left dealing with issues that can be resolved. Therefore, please book in with us so that we can assess you and offer you treatments for any problems you may have such as tummy gap (Diastasis Recti), pelvic floor issues or bladder / bowel dysfunction, painful or tight scars or unsure of how to get back to exercise safely. 

How Long After Giving Birth Should I Book The Natal Check?

The Full Natal Check is from 6 weeks after birth. However, if you would like to be seen before this time, we can accommodate you. We strongly advise that you book in advance because this is a very popular service which gets booked up very quickly. If you are in the first 4 weeks after giving birth and have symptoms which you are concerned about, please book in with Charlotte (our specialist women’s health physiotherapist) who will be able to help you. 

How long does The Natal Check Take?

Both the in clinic and online check take 60 minutes.
