Your pelvic floor needs recovery time from all the changes in pregnancy and childbirth. Sometimes symptoms such as pain, loss of urine and a heavy feeling in your pelvic floor may still be present.

Check-up at 6 weeks after childbirth
Even if you have no obvious symptoms now, it is useful to do a check-up of your pelvic floor within 6 weeks after childbirth. There may not be any problems now, but without adequate recovery of your pelvic floor they may arise in a few years.
Also if you are unsure about the recovery of your body after childbirth, want to start exercising responsibly again or advice about physical strain during work appropriate for you, you can make an appointment for a consultation.
What will a consultation consist of?
- Taking anamnesis to adapt treatment to your situation
- Examination of the pelvis and pelvic floor, internal examination
- Learning to use the pelvic floor consciously
- Massage to relieve tension around the pelvic area
- Exercises for your unique situation
Pelvic physiotherapy is reimbursed under the supplemental insurance. You do not need a referral. If there is a case of urine leakage, it is possible that nine treatments are reimbursed from the basic insurance, this is at the expense of the deductible. If you want to use the latter option, you will need a referral from the doctor.
