Post-Pregnancy Physical Therapy for Moms in Pittsburgh

Motherhood & Postpartum Care

To say that giving birth is hard on the body is something of an understatement. The physical and hormonal changes that come with pregnancy and childbirth can often leave mothers feeling exhausted, achy, sore, and in need of some serious TLC.

That's where postpartum care comes in. Postpartum care is all about helping mothers recover from the challenges of pregnancy & childbirth, and get back to feeling like themselves again.

At Resilient Motherhood, we offer a variety of postpartum care services designed to help mothers heal, recover, and feel their best. We provide support and treatment for a range of issues, including:


Diastasis Recti

Diastasis recti is a condition that can occur during pregnancy, and it refers to a separation of the abdominal muscles. This can lead to back pain, difficulty with bowel movements, and overall discomfort. We offer a variety of treatments to help mothers heal from diastasis recti, including core strengthening exercises, manual therapy, and electrical stimulation.

Perineal Tearing

Perineal tearing is a common occurrence during childbirth, and it can cause a great deal of pain & discomfort. We offer perineal treatments that help to reduce swelling, promote healing, and relieve pain.

problem prevention

From urinary leakage prolapse to pain during sex, we offer treatments and exercises that can help prevent common postpartum problems.

c-section recovery

If you've had a c-section, we offer scar management, scar massage, and visceral mobilization to help you heal and feel your best.

Pelvic and back pain

Pelvic pain is a common issue for mothers, and it can often be aggravated by pregnancy & childbirth. We offer a variety of treatments to help relieve pain, including manual therapy, electrical stimulation, and exercises.

migraines & headaches

We use a technique called lymphatic massage that can help to relieve headaches & migraines that are common during pregnancy & postpartum.

No matter what challenges you're facing, we're here to help. We're here to support you on your journey to feeling like yourself again. If you're ready, schedule your first consultation with us today!

When it comes to women’s health, physical therapy can never start too late. At Resilient Motherhood, many women come to us saying, “I’m x number of years postpartum and still experiencing pain/leakage/other issues. Is it too late to find pelvic floor physical therapy near me?”

The truth is, you can insert as many years as you want. It’s never too late (or too early) to fix pain or leaking urine. At Resilient Motherhood, we support mothers well past the six-month mark. We help moms run, jump, and play with their kids without pain and leaking, without depending on pads, surgery, or pain medication.

If you’re ready to get the support you deserve, feel like yourself, and enjoy motherhood to the fullest, schedule your first consultation with Dr. Kailee at Resilient Motherhood. We will work with you to find the best plan of action when it comes to your unique situation!

Frequently-Asked Questions

At Resilient Motherhood, we don’t do “not supposed to” or “can’t.” If you want to be able to do crunches, we won’t just help you do crunches – we’ll show you how to fix diastasis recti by helping your muscles work properly to close your diastasis.

Simply, no. Hormones during breastfeeding can make you a little drier, so definitely use lube, but just because you’re breastfeeding does not mean that you should have to put up with painful, lackluster sex!

Yes! At Resilient Motherhood, we know it can be hard to make time for another appointment, but it’s so important that you don’t neglect your own health. That’s why it’s important to us to offer virtual sessions as well. While not every element of physical therapy can be conducted virtually, telemedicine allows us to support you when and where you need us, not just when you can get to our office.

Resilient Motherhood makes it easy to get started on the road to empowered motherhood. Just schedule your first consultation with us virtually or at one of our two convenient locations using our online scheduling tool
