Pregnancy Physiotherapy (physio), Auckland

Total Mums is a physiotherapy clinic which provides specialist physiotherapy for pregnancy and post pregnancy related pain.

Pregnancy can cause women to experience problems such as pelvic or low back pain, symphysis pubis dysfunction, rib pain, neck pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome (sore wrists and numb hands). Post-natally, many women suffer from separated abdominal muscles (rectus abdominis diastasis) and core muscle weakness, or pain in their neck and shoulders, back, knees or wrists from looking after their baby.

Total Mums Physiotherapists are trained to help with any of these problems. We pride ourselves on providing a caring, individualised and comprehensive physiotherapy service to women in this challenging phase of life. At Total Mums you’ll feel like we really get the physical challenges mums face while caring for their little ones and we will do our very best to help to help you restore your physical well-being.

Massage during or after your pregnancy is a great way to relax and recover, or to treat yourself. We also offer this service.

At Total Mums you can rest and feel confident knowing that if you are pregnant or following pregnancy, your massage will be carried out by a physiotherapist with a special interest in women’s health. Unlike most other places that offer pregnancy massage, your physiotherapist at Total Mums specialises and has an interest in women’s health and they will ensure you receive a safe and relaxing massage.


Hold on Tight

As a mum or mum-to-be, you’re probably familiar with the fact that you have a group of muscles called the pelvic floor, and that these muscles need to be exercised. You may have learnt about the pelvic floor in your antenatal classes.

Perhaps you became more aware of your pelvic floor muscles while pregnant or after giving birth, due to changes in your pelvic floor function. However, if you don’t have a good understanding of what the pelvic floor is or how to exercise it correctly, you’re not alone. Many women struggle to maintain a regular habit of pelvic floor exercises.
