  • feel pressure or bulging in your vagina or rectum
  • have pain, numbness or tingling in your hands or wrists

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

If you have delivered within the past 6 weeks call and book an individual appointment.   If it is past 6 weeks we encourage you to find a physio in the community using   www.bcphysio.org
