Telephone consults and in person appointments are now available.  Postpartum appointments are limited to a "one time" appointment to address early postpartum questions/concerns within the first six weeks after delivery

Women are seen both as an inpatient or outpatient.

You may benefit from a BCW Physiotherapy assessment if you:

  • have neck, back, pelvic, groin or hip pain
  • leak urine, gas or stool 
  • have a wide gap or bulging abdominal muscles
  • feel pressure or bulging in your vagina or rectum
  • have pain, numbness or tingling in your hands or wrists
  • have questions about safe activity and exercise while pregnant or postpartum
  • are having mobility issues 
  • not sure what pelvic floor muscles are or how to do the exercises (kegels)

If you are pregnant and have musculoskeletal/physical concerns call and book an individual appointment.   

If you have delivered within the past 6 weeks call and book a one time apointment to address any early postpartum concerns.   If you are past 6 weeks we encourage you to find a physio in the community using

Note: there will be no internal pelvic floor exams during these appointments.
