Perinatal Pelvic Health

Suffolk and North East Essex ICB have launched a new service to support anyone with antenatal or postnatal pelvic floor problems, incontinence or prolapse. Everyone receiving maternity care will be able to access these services throughout their pregnancy and for 12 months afterwards.

There is now a Single Point of Access entry into Pelvic Health Physiotherapy. They will provide advice and self-management exercises which can help treat existing pelvic health conditions and prevent them from developing.

If the answer is yes to any of the following questions, you would likely benefit from this service:

  • Bladder & bowel problems?
  • Back, groin, hip or buttock pain?
  • Separation in stomach muscles?
  • Heaviness, discomfort or pain in vagina?

You can self-refer via phone or internet:
